About the Book

From two of Canada's preeminent historians comes a highly original compilation of eyewitness accounts of the Canadian immigrant experience. The Land Newly Found presents immediate and engaging first-person stories from the frontiers of Canadian immigration history. Drawing from letters, diaries, and the media, this collection features a diversity of voices and experiences as well as more than a dozen pieces written especially for this volume. This unique book provides a penetrating look into the lives and minds of people from all over the world as they begin their life anew in Canada, including: their reasons for immigrating; their lives left behind; their struggles to adapt; their search for work; their difficulties with language; their quest for security; their encounters with exploitation, racism, empathy and goodwill; their responses to Canada and Canada's responses to them. The Land Newly Found not only explores people's personal experiences, but provides keen insight into the history, policy and politics of our evolving multicultural nation. - Jacket flap.
