The famine survivors who helped build Canada in the years that followed Black ’47 provide a testament to courage, resilience, and perseverance. By the time of Confederation, the Irish population of Canada was second only to the French, and four million Canadians can claim proud Irish descent.

Flight from Famine is a close exploration of Irish migration to Canada during the early nineteenth century, a process which was accelerated by the Irish Famine (. 845-52). The book vividly describes the lives of the individual actors who emigrated, detailing their existence in Ireland, their motivations for moving to a new country, their experiences of the long voyages across the Atlantic Ocean and Canadian responses to a mass influx. In doing so, MacKay produces a rich micro-history which provides a unique insight into the cosmos of the nineteenth-century Irish emigrant.

One of Canada’s founding peoples, the Irish arrived in the Newfoundland fishing stations as early as the seventeenth . Flight from Famine received Quebec's 1991 QSPELL Prize.

One of Canada’s founding peoples, the Irish arrived in the Newfoundland fishing stations as early as the seventeenth century. Descended from Pictou County settlers, and born and educated in Nova Scotia, he was a wartime merchant seaman, has been a reporter for Canadian Press, and covered major stories in a dozen countries for United Press International.

This is the moving story of the mass migration that brought a million Irish men and women to Canada in the first half of the nineteenth century. After leaving conditions so bad that one witness described how “they wandered into towns and died in the streets,” many arrived penniless, hoping to “make good” in the new world. In one tragic year, 5,000 died at sea and another 5,400 got no farther than a grave on Grosse Île. But, despite the countless daily hardships facing settlers in a harsh new land, by the time of Confederation the Irish were the second-largest ethnic group after the French.

If your ancestors hail from Canada and they are Irish this book gives you some idea of what they went through when they came to the New World. It's truly amazing that any of the Irish actually made it... God Bless the French, they took in the orphans, without changing their names
