Description

The four Lundy children in the cover photograph are of Scottish (Thistle), Irish (Shamrock), and Welsh (Leek) descent. These Celtic bloodlines are reflected in the title of this book, which was inspired by words from ‘The Maple Leaf Forever’. This book starts in 1824 when the Lundy ancestors came to Canada from Ireland, and ends in 1942 when the photograph on the cover was taken. It tells the stories of people who decided to find new lives by immigrating to Canada from the British Isles.
