People have people been coming to Canada for over 12,000years! From those first Stone Age "immigrants" right up to the present day, people have been coming for millennia by every means possible -- foot, boat, car, train, and airplane. From the Wow Canada! series comes Coming to Canada, a collection of compelling stories about these pioneers. Coming to Canada traces these stirring human tales of immigration and it's through this lens that the country's story unfolds. Interspersed through the chronologically arranged stories are spotlights on important historical events, ethnic neighborhoods, and exceptional individuals. A wealth of compelling archival photographs, artwork, memorabilia, documents, posters, tickets, craftwork, tools, and clothing show how diverse groups helped shape a people and a country. A timeline at the close highlights significant events and waves of immigrants arriving from different parts of the world, to help readers put it all in context.
