The Black pioneers (1839-1865) who cleared the land and established the Queen's Bush settlement in that section of unsurveyed land where present-day Waterloo and Wellington counties meet, near Hawkesville, are the focus of this extensively researched book. Linda Brown-Kubisch's attention to detail and commitment to these long-neglected settlers re-establishes their place in Ontario history. Set in the context of the early migration of Blacks into Upper Canada, this work is a must for historians and for genealogists involved in tracing family connections with these pioneer inhabitants of the Queen's Bush. "In the 19th century one of the most important areas of settlement for fugitive American slaves was the Queen's Bush, then an isolated region in the backwoods of Ontario. Despite much recent attention to African-Canadian history, the Queen's Bush remains a remote territory for historical scholarship. Linda Brown-Kubisch offers a pioneering entry into that gap. With a jeweller's eye for the biological subject, Brown-Kubisch introduces the courageous Black adventurers and the hardships they faced in Canada." - James Walker, Professor of History, University of Waterloo, and author of The Black Loyalists (1976, 1992) and "Race," Rights and the Law (1997).… (lisätietoja)

A very detailed study of how slaves who escaped to Canada survived as pioneer settlers in the forests of Ontario. Some failed to make it but then so did white settlers. Many cleared enough land to get started but they never received the support from the government that was promised. Unscrupulous land agents and government bureaucrats frequently sabotaged their efforts. Racism was also a factor in their treatment by some white government agents and businessmen.

However some of these men & women overcame incredible hardships to clear out a homestead from the bush. One couple arrived in Canada in the fall but could not find anyone in Niagara Falls who could direct then to the Queens Bush. It was February by the time they found a map and arrived in the the area. They built a cabin and survived the remainder of the winter, an incredible feat considering the Queen's Bush is in the snow belt caused by the lake effect off Lake Huron and they had few resources. One of many stories the author found in her research, much of which she did in Louisiana.

If I have a criticism, it is the repetition of the same information over and over. A tighter editing job would have helped but I think the book may have been rush to publication because the author was ill.

My Father's first farm was in the Queen's Bush area and Brown-Kubisch's research is so detailed that one could research that farm in Peel Township to see which Black family cleared the first few acres. ( )
