Under the northern lights
My memories of life in the Finnish community of Northern Ontario
- Published: January 1994
What was it like for young immigrant girls growing up in the lumber camps and mining towns of northern Ontario in the 1920s? How did teenagers in Canada cope with the Great Depression of the “Dirty Thirties”? What did young women on the home front do during World War II while their menfolk were overseas with the Canadian Forces? This autobiography shows us what ordinary life has been like for many women in Canada over the last 75 years, and it illuminates a largely unknown chapter of Canada’s diverse multicultural heritage.
