"Defiant Spirits", by Ross King, is a terrific book for anyone who is interested in the Group of 7 and Tom Thomson. Ross King describes the artists in great deal, including the struggles to be accepted by a sceptical public, media, and politicians. There is great insight into the life of all the artists, including Tom Thomson, which includes the untimely and mysterious death of Thomson back in 1917. This is highly recommended and great for students who may be studying The Group of 7.
