Hartland de Montarville Molson: Man of Honour

Hartland de Montarville Molson: Man of Honour Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A portrait of the man often called the Canadian establishment's quintessential figure.

This superb, fully illustrated reference offers the most up-to-date and essential facts on the identity, kinships, locations, populations and cultural characteristics of some 400 separately identifiable peoples native to the North American continent, both living and extinct, from the Canadian Arctic to the Rio Grande.

Hartland Molson's life spanned almost a century that included two world wars, Prohibition, the Depression, major political upheaval, and massive social and industrial change. Born in 1907 to great wealth and privilege, he used his numerous talents wisely and lived his life with integrity. The concise information is organized for easy use and covers all cultural/geographical regions: the Northeastern Woodlands, Southeastern Woodlands, Plains and Prairie, Plateau, Great Basin, California, Southwest, Northwest Coast, Subarctic and Arctic. Tribes are grouped by linguistic family. The spiritual beliefs and the role of Native Americans in history and modern culture are addressed in detail.

A vigorous and active entrepreneur, he was intimately connected to key events in Canada's history:

More than 300 color and archival photographs, 21 regional maps and a dazzling portfolio of over 100 specially commissioned color illustrations give a dramatic visual introduction to the vast range of Native American culture. Population and settlement trends based on recent census figures paint detailed portraits of all officially recognized tribes. Appendices include the Powwow Trail and a list of museums holding Native American artifacts (including the new Smithsonian Museum of theAmerican Indian). At age 26, he became president of Dominion Skyways, an airline he founded to transport miners and prospectors to remote northern regions.

In 1939, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and flew more than 60 combat missions during the Battle of Britain, for which he received the Order of the British Empire. This is one of the most comprehensive, up-to-date and useful references on the subject and an important record of Native American peoples. After the war he returned to the family brewing business, moving up the ranks from vice-president to director.
