Biography, Memoirs & Letters
The Political Vocation of John Napier Turner
This definitive biography of a major Canadian political figure provides a new perspective on federal politics from the 1960s through the 1980s and gives John Turner his rightful place in Canadian history.
This poignant but ultimately empowering memoir tells the story Peter Likins, his wife, and six children they adopted, despite issues of race, age and health which normally would have made these children "unadoptable" by 1960s standards. A frank, open account of the difficulties that a family can face, An American Family is a wonderful narrative of the genesis of a family and a journey to the deepest parts of a father's heart.
