Summary
"This migration anthology is an entertaining miscellany of memoir, essays, newspaper reportage, and even a poem, highlighting the humour, as well as the ironies and agonies generated when humans seek a new homeland. The authors, and their stories, are as diverse as our Canadian population itself, and help to tell who we all are within this amazing, tolerant, nurturing and sometimes frustrating geographic space called Canada."--Publisher's website
