People in Transition
Reflections on Becoming CanadianBook - 2001
People in Transition is a poignant collection of personal accounts and frank deliberation on what it means to leave one's country of origin and start anew in this diverse and vibrant young nation. Author Trudy Duivenvoorden Mitic travelled coast-to-coast and masterfully assembled this telling collection of reflections from some of Canada's most prominent newcomers.
From searches for opportunity to the necessity of escape, each of these 29 transition stories brings something new and positive to the immigration experience, and exposes all the trials, tears, hope, and triumphs of becoming Canadian.
This highly humanistic collection brings faces and names to immigration, and shows us a Canada, its people and place in the world from an entirely unique perspective.
