From Thistles to Cowpies
A unique blend of biography and memoir, From Thistles to Cowpies is both timely and significant. Whether permanent residents or refugees, immigrants desirous to make Canada their home will be drawn to this touching narrative about Canada’s early immigrants so boldly stitched into the Canadian mosaic. With increased interest in DNA tests, the general population is fascinated both with their own as well as the country’s past. Canada’s 150 celebrations encouraged Canadians to look back in time. What better way to understand that past, than through the experiences of those early immigrants? Leaving the world of instant connection behind, modern readers enter the portals of the past through the eyes of those who, like my parents, lived it.
