Goodreads review: 5 out of 5 stars - "a model of what popular history should be"

A Goodreads reviewer, John FitzGerald, has offered an extremely gratifying response to the The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson: Separating Fact from Fiction. He says, in short:

"[the] book is a thorough and highly competent examination of purported evidence… it is extremely well argued.

"Klages ...gets to the point quickly about each piece of evidence -- no weltering in unnecessary detail here -- and the book moves along quickly in an intelligent and clear style…

This book is a model of what popular history should be -- interesting, pertinent, cogent, significant, and a damn good read."
Thanks, John!
