Looks at Canada's immigration history, exploring how and why people people made their way across land and sea to make Canada their home.

Perseus Publishing
From the first Stone Age "immigrants" to more recent arrivals, people have been coming to Canada for millennia by every means possible - foot, boat, car, train, and airplane. This lavishly illustrated and richly detailed look at the fascinating history of multiculturalism in Canada collects the compelling stories of these pioneers. In the spirited and always thorough text that her readers have come to expect, Susan Hughes tells Canada's special story by focusing on the country's major ethnic groups and waves of immigration. Interspersed throughout the chronologically arranged stories are "spotlight" spreads that explore special historical events, neighborhoods, and individuals. A wealth of compelling archival photographs, artwork, rare memorabilia, documents, posters, tickets, craftwork, recipes, tools, clothing, and toys show how diverse groups helped shape a people and a country.
