Praise

Praise for Blood and Daring:
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
“A wonderful and seamless popular history full of colourful characters, intrigue and political backstabbing of the first order.” National Post
“A thrilling, near-theatrical look at the years leading up to Confederation…. The…protagonists are…cleverly selected to round out the account…. The authoritative narration is clear, precise, and entirely enjoyable for non-scholars. The book presents a startlingly unfamiliar and ominously dangerous period in Canadian-American relations; the world’s longest undefended border was in danger of bursting into flames, unless a unified country could emerge from the tangle of British colonies. It’s the birth of Canada in all its glory and muck.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Boyko has spun a compelling narrative. Better still, it’s supported by just the right measure of academic rigour.” Winnipeg Free Press
“A fast-paced read, and Boyko skillfully weaves together the complex and conflict-filled Canadian, British and American wartime policy.” The Globe and Mail
