Frans Schryer, who was born and raised in the Netherlands, came to Canada when his parents emigrated in 1957. He became a social anthropologist specializing in rural Mexico, and then did research in rural Ontario, before again turning his attention to Mexico. He currently holds a faculty position at Guelph, well known for its research on agriculture.

Part two deals with Dutch farmers in Ontario from a historical and a sociological perspective, telling the story of postwar farm immigrants, much of it in their own words.
