Who knew that Blacks settled in Saskatchewan before the First World War? That people of Lebanese and Syrian origins immigrated to the southern part of the province in the early 1900s? That Welsh settlers arrived following years of misadventure in South America? That a small band of Lakota Sioux, descendents of refugees who fled the United States after the Battle of Little Big Horn, remain in Saskatchewan today?

In Settling Saskatchewan, author Alan Anderson expertly identifies and explains the patterns of immigration and settlement in the province and further enlightens us on the many peoples who now comprise its extraordinarily diverse cultural mosaic. They came from all parts of the world, from all walks of life—and they continue to come today. Together with the indigenous aboriginal population, they have made Saskatchewan what it is.

Combining historical, sociological, and demographic perspectives, Settling Saskatchewan offers the most detailed and comprehensive description of ethnic settlements in the province.
