David Beasley writes fiction and non fiction.  The Canadian Don Quixote and his other books are featured on his site at www.kwic.com/~davus .

 

THE CANADIAN DON QUIXOTE is the biography of John Richardson, a Major who loved writing.  Historical events combined with his life story make up a good read that will educate and entertain readers at the same time.

 

Having descended from Native Americans, John Richardson is in favor of the Indians and this fact is depicted on his works.  John Richardson’s life was full of adventures both in military life and in his personal life as a journalist.  He had a vivid personality that made him get involved in battles and duels, and his love for women is also illustrated in this book.

 

Rich in quotes from Richardson’s works this book is also enhanced by scattered black and white pictures of Richardson’s era depicting places he visited and historical figures of that time. Major Richardson enjoyed military life but his passion was writing.  A list of Richardson’s works is included at the back of the book along with bibliographical notes and an index. The style of this book is literary, complex and addresses an educated audience.  It caters to those who love history/biography and those who love literature and wish to know more about Canadian novelists.
