Say I do : mail order brides( Visual )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Say I Do chronicles the stories of three 'mail-order brides' from the Philippines now living in North America. In order to escape lives of poverty and to support their families, these women uprooted themselves to marry men they did not know. Upon arriving in their new land, they found themselves isolated in remote regions. One woman arrived in a small town in the dead of winter to find herself living in a camper with no running water. She soon discovered that her husband was a violent man. With no one to turn to, women like this were at the mercy of their husbands -- men who searched on the internet for women with 'traditional family values.' The men had been unsuccessful with local women whom they felt had too many freedoms and were 'spoiled.' What lies ahead for these women is uncertain. The lucky ones may find stability. The less fortunate may suffer terrible consequences. All of them are desperate enough to take the risk

Island of shadows : the D'Arcy Island leper colony, 1891-1924( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A documentary about the treatment of Chinese dying of leprosy in Canada and their incarceration on D'Arcy Island off the west coast of British Columbia. When the first case of leprosy appeared among Chinese laborers in the early 1890s, civil officials panicked. Although medical officials knew that leprosy is not seriously contagious, the victims were banished to the virtually "escape-proof" island. Their only contact with the outside world was the visit of a supply ship every three months bringing food, clothing, opium and coffins. The dying were to bury the dead themselves. Although medical officers condemned the conditions, nothing was done. The story focuses on Lim Sam, a composite character emblematic of the Chinese men banished to D'Arcy Island. The conditions for the Chinese on the island contrasted starkly with conditions at Canada's other leper hospital in Tracadie, N.B., where nuns looked after the patients, a physician was resident and meals were prepared by a cook

Island of shadows by Sue Murray( Visual )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rooted in racism and fueled by panic over a feared disease, the tragedy of D'Arcy Island Leper Colony was prolonged over 33 years as politicians squabbled and lacked the courage to take responsibility for the sick and dying. The lepers, who were almost all Chinese, were left on this island with the only contact to the outside world being a supply ship that came from Vancouver Island every 3 months to drop off food, opium and coffins. Vivid dramatization and archival photos leads a thoughtful journey to D'Arcy Island at the turn of the century and a dark chapter in Canadian history
