About the Ukrainian immigrants who came to Canada to homestead on the prairies - the ordeals they had to go through, and the treatment they endured. This was an eye-opening book - very interesting and provided a good historical perspective.

Since my mother was from this area, it was interesting to see the hardships endured by the early Ukrainian immigrants. They survived and am so glad that our wonderful culture can now be appreciated.

Interesting, especially if you have unkrainian ancestry. It is difficult to imagine the hardships that our grandparents and great grandparents had. Because of their knowledge, hardships and difficult lives, they paved the way for a great future for generations to come.
