A skilled historian and an entertaining writer, Kilbourn reveals Mackenzies complex character: able political editor, shrewd recorder of his times, efficient first mayor of Toronto, and gadfly of the House of Assembly.Kilbourn vividly recreates the ill-fated Mackenzie-led march on Toronto during the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837, an uprising of brave but comical farmers unprepared to meet musket and cannon, and deftly portrays the rebellions aftermath and Mackenzie s subsequent escape and exile.

A reprint of William Mackenzies own account of the Upper Canada Rebellion is featured.This touching, frequently hilarious book was originally published by Clarke, Irwin in 1956 and remained in print through numerous reprintings and editions for several decades, garnering praise such as The Firebrand is a major step on the path to nationhood (Globe and Mail).
