Great Canadian Imposters
Written by Cheryl MacDonald.
James Lorimer & Company Ltd., 2009.
| Millionaires, doctors, aboriginal heroes, and stars of stage and
screen. Pretenders all.
From Canadian history comes the stories of imposters. Meet the cross-dressing Isabel Gunn, disguised as fur-trapping "John Hubbisher." Read about a woman who posed successfully as Dr. James Barry, surgeon and early women's rights advocate. Follow the astonishing life of Archie Belaney, who convinced millions of people that he was Grey Owl, a First Nations conservationist. These are just three of the many scammers, double agents, and con artists in this fascinating collection.
