Flames Across the Border; The Canadian-American Tragedy, 1813-1814

Berton, Pierre

Toronto, Ontario, Canada: McClelland and Stewart, 1981. Second printing [stated]. Hardcover. Very good/Good. Tom McNeely (Endpapers), Geoffrey Matthews (Maps). 492, [4] pages. Illustrated endpapers. Maps. Cast of Major Characters, Author's Notes Notes. Select Bibliography. Index. DJ has some wear, soiling, edge tears and chips. . Signed and dated on top of title page. Pierre Francis de Marigny Berton, (July 12, 1920 - November 30, 2004) was a noted Canadian author of non-fiction, especially Canadiana and Canadian history, and was a well-known television personality and journalist. An accomplished storyteller, Berton was one of Canada's most prolific and popular authors. He wrote on Canadian history, critiques of mainstream religion, anthologies, and historical works. He was also a founder of the Writers' Trust of Canada, a non-profit literary organization that seeks to encourage Canada's writing community. Berton's 50 books became popular because of his light and fast-paced style. Historian C.P. Stacey in 1980, said Berton demonstrated his skill as an anecdotalist, or storyteller, who emphasized the human dimension. At the age of 31 he was named managing editor of Macleans. In 1957, he became a key member of the CBC's public affairs flagship program, Close-Up, and a permanent panelist on the popular television show Front Page Challenge. Berton joined the Toronto Star as associate editor of the Star Weekly and columnist for the daily paper in 1958, leaving in 1962 to commence The Pierre Berton Show, which ran until 1973. On this show in 1971 Berton interviewed Bruce Lee in what was to be the famous martial artist's only surviving television interview. Berton served as the Chancellor of Yukon College. The Canada-U.S. border was in flames as the War of 1812 continued. York's parliament buildings were on fire, Niagara-on-the-Lake burned to the ground and Buffalo lay in ashes. Even the American capital of Washington, far to the south, was put to the torch. The War of 1812 had become one of the nineteenth century's bloodiest struggles. Flames Across the Border is a compelling evocation of war at its most primeval level - the muddy fields, the frozen forests and the ominous waters where men fought and died. Pierre Berton skillfully captures the courage, determination and terror of the universal soldier, giving new dimension and fresh perspective to this early conflict between the two emerging nations of North America.
