Canadian Historical Review: 'Many Deaths...' is "a welcome addition to the literature"

Meaghan Beaton, a Western Washington University (USA) historian, wrote a review of The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson for the highly-regarded academic journal, Canadian Historical Review.

Dr. Beaton offers:
"Klages has produced a timely and valuable contribution to the literature on Thomson that certainly will be of interest to historians, artists, and popular audiences."

"Klages work serves as a valuable reminder to historians about the importance of methodology and the use of primary documents."

For the full review, see the March 2017 issue of the CHR, Vol. 98, Iss. 1 (pgs. 161-163).

Jan 2017: Sean Graham reviews 'Many Deaths of Tom Thomson' on

Sean Graham writes: "The Many Deaths of Tom Thomson hits all the right notes. It’s well researched and illuminates a major Canadian cultural figure while at the same time making room for conspiracies and potentially outlandish claims. At a time when facts have given way to feelings, it’s a terrific reminder of the historian’s responsibility to ensure the evidence is always at the forefront."
