Baraka Books of Montreal has agreed to publish my book, A DISTINCT ALIEN RACE: Industrialization, Immigration, Religious Strife: The Untold Tale of Franco-Americans. The phrase "a distinct alien race" was used by a Boston-based newspaper in 1889 to describe New England's Franco-Americans.
This blog has been research & development for a book. I'm taking the story of the Franco-Americans to a general audience because it's one of the most missing corners of U.S. history and because it speaks to unresolved, lingering conflicts.
Look for my book later in 2018.
