Neither Waif Nor Stray: The Search For A Stolen Identity May 11 2000
By Sheila Beatty Alexander - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Powerful! A must read for anyone who suspects they may have a Home Child or Orphan Train Rider ancestor. Mr. Snow gives hope for researching these lost ancestors. Too many people do not know that these children were placed on both sides of the US/Canadian border. Mr. Snow's analysis of the psychological effects should help Home Children and their descendants to understand how this shameful scheme shaped their lives. My thanks to Mr. Snow.

Children without names March 28 2000
By George Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A truly amazing story. It makes a person who is aware of their family background and lineage realize what it means not to have one, and that one's identity and heritage is too easily taken for granted. A good read of a untold part of our history. George J.
I was awed by the courage and resilience of Mr. Snow. I was moved by this story and the impact it has had on many Canadians. Well worth a read. Liz J.

Family History Oct. 28 2001
By Roxanne Hein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was so excited to see my Grandfather's name in print; Reginald Marshall Worby. It is too bad that he died before the printing of this book.
My Grandfather was at St. Augustine with Perry's father. I have been in contact with Perry via email.
I can now understand why my Grandfater cried when he was telling me about his experiences as a boy. I am sure my Grandfather purposely left a lot out of his stories, things he was trying to forget. I did a paper on his life story when I was in highschool, it makes me sad to know that so many of these children were treated so cruely.
My Grandfather did eventually find his family, he was one of the lucky ones as many families are still looking for their roots.
Thank you Perry!!!
