free read Kanata author Don Gillmor 106 Illegitimate son and his descendants Kanata takes readers on a fictionalized multi generational journey through millennia and across a continent to examine the stories myths and legends of those who formed the country and who were formed by it Kanata is the story of the invention of a nation. Parts of this book deserved a rating of four but the thread that holds the narrative together was not always present in the story Mainly told from the point of view of Michael Mountain Horse a fictional descendant of map maker David Thompson the story occasionally meanders off to flashes of history as seen from the eyes of Sir John A Mackenzie King Diefenbaker et al Unfortunately I found these side notes to be interesting than the main character s story which never really went anywhere I understand that it would be difficult to wrap all of Canada s history into one fictional narrative but I guess this book just wasn t uite what I expected Without a little prior knowledge I don t think that all of the events would necessarily make sense It was good but not great
