I want to thank Thomas Edmund Mueller, author and Goodreads First Giveaway for the eBook Kindle copy of Canada ~ An Immigrant Homesteader Family that I won in the Giveaway.

This is a true story of a young German man living his dream to immigrant to Canada and homestead with his family and lives off the land. The family settled in New Brunswick first and had a farm that sustained them with the butter they made and sold from their cows and the food they raised and the farm animals that provided food just as homesteaders have done for many years. The difference is that Mr. Mueller and his family started their adventure in the 1980's and made it work. Hunting was also a part of living off the land.

The book shows a respect for the environment, a strong work ethic and determination to make living a simple life work and being close to nature. The pictures were an added bonus and made the story easy to picture from building cabins, to the bears and wildlife, and the children and how they learned to help with everyday life. It is an excellent book to get a look at a brave man that lived his dream.
