By: Jonathan Wagner (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Jonathan Wagner considers why Germans left their home country, why they chose to settle in Canada, who assisted their passage, and how they crossed the ocean to their new home, as well as how the Canadian government perceived and solicited them as immigrants. He examines the German context as closely as developments in Canada, offering a new, more complete approach to German-Canadian immigration.
Jonathan Wagner teaches in the Department of History at Minot State University.
