Reviews

Praise for Song of a Nation Shortlisted for the 2019 Vine Award for History

"[Song of a Nation] is a well-written, well-researched account of the successes and travails of Lavallee's life and of the genesis and evolution of O Canada." --Winnipeg Free Press "Song of a Nation is a bravura performance with all the dramatic elements of Grand Opera--war, patriotism, loyalty, ambition, family, politics, and enchantment. Robert Harris explains how we became our national song. It makes you want to stand up and sing." --Michael Enright, host of CBC's The Sunday Edition
