A look at the troubled state of race relations in Canada by this black novelist, who came to Canada from Barbados at the age 24. Although the title refers to how the fugitive slaves (and Foster himself) thought of Canada, the reality is quite different: "The sons and daughters of black doctors, lawyers and politicians are just as likely to drop out of school and to be harassed by the police as are the offspring of domestic servants. For many young Blacks, this situation is not acceptable. INSCRIBED on the title page and dated in 1998. Index. 325 pp. Near fine in glossy blue and black illustrated wrappers with French flaps. LIMITED TIME SALE: All prices shown have been REDUCED by 25% for the ABEBOOKS SALE. Dust jacketsare protected with archival covers, and books are carefully packed for shipping.
