MONTERO, Gloria. The Immigrants. Toronto: James Lorimer & Company, 1977. First Printing. Pp. (8),9-222,(2). 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine."Canada's immigrants speak from the heart in these pages, and their observ ations show Canada in a fresh new light.Gloria Montero has created a book in the oral tradition -- vivid, intimate, distilled from more than 400 conversations recorded as she criss-crossed Canada for two years asking immigrants about life in their adopted country. Her subjects range in age from 4 to 84. They come from every corner of the globe, and are scattered in cities, towns and villages throughout the land. 'The Immigrants' is about men andwomen vital to the fabric of this country. A number of them came here many years ago. Some are newcomers. Most are hardly known beyond their own stre ets or workplaces. All of them have chosen Canada as their home, and these are their stories -- their perceptions, their hopes, their humiliations, their disappointments, their achievements, their dreams." - from the dustjacket. Light foxing to endpapers, else very good in lightly nicked dustjacket.Signed and inscribed by Montero on the half-title page. 20.00
