Book Description Dundurn Pub., Toronto, 1990. Hard Cover in Dust Jacket. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Photos (illustrator). First. 1990 First Edition Large HARDCOVER book in dust Jacket . BRAND NEW from 1990 publisher . Never opened , Never read , Never marked . Book size: 8" wide x 10" tall ; 232 pages , illustrated with black & white Photographs . Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King ( 1874 - 1950 ) presented an image to the world of a rather plain prime minister, an earnest Christian and a master of compromise . His diaries, however, revealed the real man - one who participated in seances, interpreted his dreams and ardently worshipped his mother . They also recorded the other great passion of King's life - his country estate at Kingsmere, Quebec . now called the Mackenzie King Estate, parts of which are open to the public . This book chronicles King's 50 years at Kingsmere . It is a lively exploration of a side of his complex personality never given full treatment before . For King, the estate was a refuge and a status symbol, but - above all - it was an enormous canvas for him to fill with flowers, trees, roadways and European-inspired ruins on the Canadian Shield . The King estate is unique in Canadian landscape history both for the historical interest of its surviving landscape records and for the corroborative explanations in King's extensive diaries . a famous quote of King, known as 'Rex' to his friends, was " If some countries have too much history, we have too much geography" . There is just exactly enough geography on the grounds of his estate, beautifully landscaped in gorgeous gardens which reflect the Victorian follies, Edwardian order, as well as more modern periods of the early 20th century . King was in the London Peace Parade in 1946, was compatriots with Winston Churchill, Franklin Delano Roosevelt , Harry S. Truman, Charles de Gaulle . spent time with the King George and Queen Elizabeth in their historic 1939 visit to Canada . and met nearly every notable from the 1920s onward . but he was most at home, and most himself, in the gardens of Kingsmere . and he has left a lovely legacy to the world .
