    I would say it is the difinitive book on the subject, but then again it is a somewhat narrow field. However, as someone decended from Finish Immigrants it gave me an insight into their lives like nothing else ever has. It was never an easy life, but I am grateful that my ancestors made the choices they did and I grew up Canadian.

    The story of early Finnish immigrant women to Canada 1890 - 1930 who were primarily working class and single. This is an account of their work and their campaigns for better wages and working conditions. Old photos and immigration data.
