The Quest Library Series, published by XYZ Publishing, contains more than twenty biographies of Canadians whose contributions have made a difference at home and abroad. Three titles have recently been added to the line. Wayne Larsen chronicles the life of a revered painter and founding member of the Group of Seven in A.Y. Jackson: A Love for the Land.

This series is a wise starting point for teachers and parents in search of well-written, thoroughly researched Canadian biographies for adolescent readers. mRb
