ePUB Karleen Bradford Ê With Nothing But Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary Ê

When Mary's family sides with the British against the American rebels they are branded traitors and forced to flee their home All they have is what they can carry with them — and their determination and courage — when they head north toward Canada Along with other Loyalists they hope to start a new life in Québec where there is land for those who have been loyal to the King But the journey is treacherous the winter bitterly cold and the MacDonalds find it hard to survive Even with the supplies from Britain clearing the land to build their home is a struggle But will they even survive to forge a new life in a new land?

    Now before I actually start reviewing Karleen Bradford’s With Nothing but Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary MacDonald I want to point out this For all intents and purposes the United Empire Loyalists were ALL REFUGEES and thus for ANY contemporary Canadians spewing racial bigotry and animosity towards recent refugees from places like Syria and Afghanistan well if your own ancestors were United Empire Loyalists your animosity towards recent refugees is not only totally unacceptable considering your family background but yes you also are majorly denigrating and trashing your brave refugee ancestors and the hardships they as United Empire Loyalists had to generally endure both on their often desperate escapes from the USA northwards and later when they were attempting to settle and make new lives for themselves and theirs And yes indeed of the Dear Canada series With Nothing but Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary MacDonald has most definitely been one of my favourites to date For one With Nothing but Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary MacDonald features a both important and also interesting piece of Canadian history since the settlement of much of Quebec Ontario and parts of the Maritimes was indeed very much influenced and shaped by the post American Revolution arrival of many thousands of Loyalists by the arrival of scores of refugees from the recently declared independent United States of America And for two with young and of course also fictional diarist Mary MacDonald author Karleen Bradford has certainly created a both immensely likeable and personally relatable twelve year old main protagonist whose narrative voice in With Nothing but Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary MacDonald absolutely sparkles with presented realism detailing in the journal entries the many hardships the MacDonald family as Loyalists have to endure on their trek northwards to Canada after being chased out of Albany New York not only losing their home and being called traitors by most of their former neighbours and friends but also having to face their youngest daughter’s death en route but of course also showing the MacDonalds’ fortitude and yes their courage moving slowly from despair to hope and also accepting that their settlement in Canada in what is now Canada will be permanent that there will in fact be no return to the USA and to the family’s former lifeHighly recommended is With Nothing but Our Courage The Loyalist Diary of Mary McDonald but with the caveat that young Mary’s featured diary does pretty well depict and portray nearly all of the American “patriots” as being total and utterly ruthless villains which is of course rather one sided at best but considering that Karleen Bradford has Mary MacDonald experience first had and at a young age her family being called traitors her father’s school being burned down and them all being threatened with physical violence even with hanging if the MacDonalds do not pack up and immediately leave in my opinion her reaction in her diary is understandable and entirely natural
