Stoddart, 1996 - History - 241 pages
Black Loyalists and their families were among the first settlers in Nova Scotia and Upper Canada.

The Freedom-Seekers chronicles the phenomenal success story of their struggle to break the chains of slavery and gain the full rights of citizenship in their adopted country.
