From the author: “I set out to pay tribute to my parents and to other Slovak Pioneer Homesteaders from Bradlo and surrounding areas in Northern Ontario. After hearing my parents and others recall not only the bad times but also the many good times of their immigrant experience and experiencing some myself, I decided to write this book.
I approached the few remaining original living settlers and their children for their memories.
These are stories that appear little when they are told separately but become huge when they are told together. I hope that they will give the reader a true sense of the Immigrant experience of the 1930s Bread Generation of Slovak Immigrants to Northern Ontario.”
