"Prime Ministers are human beings, as the Leaders & Legacies series shows through storytelling...I am confident that young Canadians reading The Legend of Lake on the Mountain...will find themselves inspired and engaged...This wonderful story will also serve to inspire young readers to learn more about Sir John A. Macdonald and early Canada along the way."†

When a grizzled man shoves a decades-old treasure map into thirteen-year-old John A. Macdonaldís hands, the young boy is certain this will be the best summer ever. But that was before a humpback lake serpent is seen at twilight by the people of Stone Mills in the mysterious Lake on the Mountain. As people flee in panic, John knows his family might be next unless he can figure out what dwells in the lake in time. Does he have what it takes to confront something he canít see clearly - or will the serpent in the darkness win?
