Alex B. Campbell: The Prince Edward Island Premier Who Rocked The Cradle tells the story of Alex B. Campbell, Prince Edward Island's longest-serving premier (1966-78) and the youngest person elected first minister in Canada in the 20th century. He led his province through a period of transformative change and stepped down in 1978 without ever having suffered electoral defeat. This is a come-the-moment, come-the-leader story with few parallels in Canadian history. The site provides access to both audio and chapter samples from the book along with access to materials from Premier Campbell's archives.
The audio and ePub versions of the book are offered free of charge by the Robertson Library, University of Prince Edward Island with permission of the author.
