Nation Builders: Barnardo Children in Canada by Gail H. Corbett





This book unmasks one of the greatest human interest stories in Canadian history: the emigration of tens of thousands of children from Britain, from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, to become home children in Canada. Through first-hand accounts and archived materials, Corbett sensitively and accurately records the pilgrimage of the children who, against great odds, proved that Canada was the promised land. Today Barnardo Children and their descendants are legion, and they are counted among Canada’s greatest nation builders.

This is a new edition, produced following the popularity of the original publication in 1997.
