OVERVIEW:

The immigrants from Lithuania who arrived in Scotland towards the end of Queen Victoria’s reign were part of a general wave of emigration from eastern Europe; many arrived with little more than a willingness to work and were an uncomfortable reminder of the hardships endured by the early Scots migrants into Upper Canada.

The author is a Lithuanian Scot and he tells the story of his parents’ generation - how the people struggled to survive and build a new life in the strange and often hostile environment of industrial Scotland, how they managed to preserve their language, culture and traditions. Many of the earliest memories of the Lithuanian community have been obtained through personal interviews and they are combined with factual detail from statistical research and contemporary sources. An important contribution to a subject which has been but hazily understood - this book explodes many myths and will give many readers pause for thought.
