239pp. Illus. NEW. Sealed in original shrinkwrap with errata leaf. "The book chronicles the story of Latvians in Canada’s Manitoba province starting in 1895 and closing off just recently at the LV100 celebrations in Winnipeg. It is a story of Latvian pioneers who left their homeland looking for land that they could call their own. It is the story of those forced to flee Latvia after the failed 1905 Revolution when workers and farmers rose up against the Baltic barons and the Czarist Russian administration and had to flee for their lives. It is the story of post-World War II refugees who fled Soviet occupation and arrived as labourers in Manitoba to build a thriving Latvian community that survived until the early 21st century."
