Confederation Drive : [a memoir]
By Janice MacDonald
In the summer of 1967 Janice MacDonald and her mother Joyce jumped into their Plymouth Barracuda and drove across Canada to celebrate Canada’s 100th birthday and Expo in Montreal. Fifty years later she recreates this road trip with her husband. This work of creative non-fiction is part memoir, part travelogue, part rumination on Canada at 150.
