The South Asian Pioneer Experience in BCBook - 2020 | First edition
"Untold Stories: The South Asian Pioneer Experience in BC captures a pivotal time in our province’s history. The book documents and preserves the forgotten voices of the first wave of South Asians who immigrated in the early 1900s from Punjab, India to British Columbia, Canada. Their meaningful stories of struggle and resilience are relatively untold and are a critical yet lost piece of the Canadian record. Untold Stories leaves a lasting legacy to help educate future generations about the challenges faced by the South Asian pioneers, as well as the significant contributions they made to the rich fabric of our province and our country. This historic publication shines the light on many vibrant, multi-generational South Asian pioneer families whose legacies date back to the early 1900s. Their voices come to life through hundreds of rare and never-seen-before images, artifacts and captivating storytelling as written by Karen Dosanjh. In every page of this extraordinary 250-page book, we honour and remember the trailblazers who struggled greatly in order to help light the way for the entire South Asian diaspora." -- Publisher's website.
