"Children of the Canadian Mosaic make an original contribution to the study of Canadian history and to the understanding of the cultural differences of immigrants and aboriginal people who helped shape it. Drawing on both primary and secondary sources, Mary Ashworth discusses the place of children in society and the effects of industrialization. She tells how education was seen as a panacea for poverty and crime, and she explores the motives of those who determined the kind of education children should receive.
Geographically, the twelve chapters span coast to coast. Historically, the stories range from pre-Columbian to post-World-War Two. Photographs, paintings, and newspaper cutting from archives across Canada illustrate each story." (Book Cover)
