Less cows than kids: Stories of Dutch settlers in Canada

Dutch language poster announcing 200 million acres of agricultural land for colonists

Martha Hawley visits Canada to meet Dutch settlers who went out there in the first half of the 20th century. Most of them were farmers. What do they remember of those early days? How did they fare? How do they look back on that period and what did bring with them from the mother country? Lots of interesting reminiscences.
