Three Mid-Wives

book cover image Staking Claims

At Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln called on Americans to ensure their nation would have “a new birth of freedom.”  But Canada and the Confederacy were having their own labour pains.

In Staking Claims To A Continent, the second book in a planned trilogy, James Laxer captures this burst of nationbuilding. Along the way, he paints intimate portraits of the central players in the drama.
