Description

The Land Newly Found is comprehensive, fascinating collection of first-hand accounts from the frontiers of Canadian immigration history. Drawn from letters, newspapers, and reportage, these vivid accounts range from the 18th century to the present day, and provide an insightful look into the lives and minds of newly arrived immigrants to Canada as well as the politicians, policy-makers, and public who witnessed their arrival. Chosen for their immediacy and engaging acuity into the Canadian immigration experience, these eyewitness accounts are broad in scope, revealing the hardships and heartbreak, hard work and happiness of people beginning their lives anew in a foreign land.

From war brides and home children to refugees and boat people, The Land Newly Found not only explores the personal stories of those who choose to make Canada their new home, but provides keen insight into the policies and political struggles of a budding multicultural nation.
