This widely acclaimed book has been called the "Bible of Canadian nationalism." Over four hundred years come to life in clear, vivid language, from the founding of Canada to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It sketches in a gripping and powerful way the early invasions of Canada from south of the border – in 1690, 1711, 1775 and 1812 – as well as the famous free trade elections of 1891, 1911 and 1988, and what it all means for us today.

Former Prime Minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau called the book “a masterful treatment” of the history of Canada. Noted U.S. historian Howard Zinn, author of The People’s History of the United States, describes The Fight for Canada as “devastatingly accurate…a fine piece of research and written with the kind of clarity that makes it accessible to a large public, which it deserves.” According to the dean of Canadian historians, Kenneth McNaught, Orchard writes “intelligently, perceptively” and he calls The Fight for Canada “distinctly moving…a forthright, carefully researched book.” Adam Zimmerman, retired chairman of Noranda, said, “Orchard has demonstrated an intellectual grasp of issues that few people understand. This book gives him enormous standing. The scholarship is amazing and the logic compelling. Read it and you’ll be the better Canadian for it.”

Literally hundreds of Canadians from all walks of life have said, “This book should be in every classroom in Canada, because it tells a history that we have never learned.” Perhaps Stompin Tom Connors sums it up best when he says, “This book, The Fight for Canada by David Orchard, should not only be required reading for every Canadian, but it should also be held in the hand of every elected member of Parliament (including the Prime Minister) while taking the oath of office and swearing allegiance to uphold the Canadian constitution. Why? Because “The Fight for Canada makes you want to…!”
