|Summary:|| "Much of the development of regions and communities on both sides of the United States-Canada border resulted from migration. With Scarcely a Ripple, the first study to link persistence, immigration, internal migration, and return migration, looks beyond the narrowly defined geographical and temporal boundaries of the aggregate census to clarify the social, economic, and demographic adjustments made by both transient and persistent Anglo-Canadian migrants. Randy Widdis places this movement within the turn of the century context of the paradox of an emerging Canadian identity and a developing integration with the United States. Book jacket."--Jacket.
