Summary:
While we may never know the exact number of Americans who chose Canada over Vietnam, an estimated half-million men and women went north as a result of their opposition to the war.

This book, which focuses upon those who remained in Canada, offers a resister's eye view of the most traumatic war in American history.  Read more...
