Canadian Ethnography Series, Vol II: From American Slaves to Nova Scotian Subjects: The Case of the Black Refugees, 1813-1840 (Vol 2) by Harvey Amani Whitfield, Bryan D. Cummins, John L. Steckley

Primarily intended for students taking courses in Introductory Anthropology but also appropriate for students in Canadian Studies, Indigenous Studies, Sociology and History. Volume 2 of the Canadian Ethnography series is a fascinating study that reveals the little-known experiences and lives of migrant American slaves in the years of struggle after their arrival in colonial Canada between 1813 and1840. Overwhelming odds limited their opportunities for earning a respectable livelihood, but despite years of poverty, disease, racism, and neglect in a harsh environment, the Black Refugees persevered to develop a distinct community identity and a foothold in the rural and urban economy of Nova Scotia.
