Premium

Summary

The Scandinavian presence has been felt in many parts of Canada, including the Windsor-Detroit border region. A Scandinavian Heritage surveys the numerous contributions made in this area by the people of 5 nations: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland. The history of these people, from the first settlers to the present is explored in detail. The experiences common to each of the nationalities are shown and contrasted to the unique perspective brought by each group to this country. Included is a survey reflecting the experiences of the present-day Scandinavian community.

To highlight this special history, Joan Magee has included an ample selection of photographs and illustrations.
