Like many who emigrated from Europe after World War II, author Herb Duerr left Germany for Canada in 1951, seeking peace and the possibility of a better life. The Unhyphenated Canuck: Reflections and Confessions of an Opinionated Immigrant tracesMoreLike many who emigrated from Europe after World War II, author Herb Duerr left Germany for Canada in 1951, seeking peace and the possibility of a better life. The Unhyphenated Canuck: Reflections and Confessions of an Opinionated Immigrant traces Duerrs life, beginning with his arrival as an adolescent in his chosen country, and portrays his struggles to mesh into a strange new world and to advance in an unfamiliar, competitive environment. With an occasional delicate, private adventure combined with extremely critical observations of current events, Duerr reveals his opinionated analysis with a mixture of contention and amusement. The Unhyphenated Canuck presents his well-researched perspective and personal experiences over fifty years of historical, cultural, and social evolution of the Canadian milieu.With his engaging narrative, Duerr sustains curiosity while presenting historical context and causes, providing entertainment and information in equal measure. Pertinent facts and often self-deprecating humour fuel the interest of The Unhyphenated Canuck from the initial introduction to the final page.
