From the turn of the century to the 1920s and 1930s, Maritimers looked primarily to Boston for work when they decided to leave home; during the economic expansion that followed the Second World War, southern Ontario was the destination of choice; when western Canada experienced an "oil boom" in the 1970s and early 1980s, a younger generation of Maritimers was drawn to Alberta. The reflections and autobiographical reminiscences of these Maritimers provide a broad geographical and generational picture of the experience at the centre of post-Confederation life in the Maritimes--exile, out-migration, going away.
