Featured Reviews of “Trudeau’s Tango”

“…Darryl Raymaker, has recently written an excellent book about Alberta and the Trudeaus, calledTrudeau’s Tango. In his compendious book, Raymaker reminds everyone that the Trudeau name has always been controversial in Alberta—but respected, too. The Trudeau name gave ‘Alberta Liberals hope,’ Raymaker writes. The father, then—like the son, now—’was a man for his time—new, youthful, superbly confident, tough and equally articulate in both official languages.’ What made Pierre Trudeau appealing in Alberta in his era makes the son just as appealing in his.” Warren Kinsella, HuffPost

“After he sold his Calgary practice, Darryl Raymaker—lawyer, corporate director, political junkie, folk music aficionado and raconteur—embarked on a lifetime labour of love: a book about the wayward course of the Liberal Party in Alberta and its love-hate relationship with Pierre Elliott Trudeau during the prime minister’s first mandate (1968 to 1972) Trudeau’s Tango is the ably written result. [H]is book recalls a tumultuous political era with wry humour and a touch of anger.” Frank Dabbs, Alberta Views

A wonderful read that highlighted a little known side of Alberta’s political history. It is written like you are in conversation with the author, and the photos included were delightful. Highly recommend! K N Morrison, Top Customer Review on Amazon
