In the telling, Archambeau takes readers into places they would not otherwise know about, where the experience of Black people has transformed, and ultimately enriched, North American life from the last days of the Golden Age of North American railways, to the jazz clubs of Montreal, through the growth of civil aviation and those who work in the industry, to the personal trials and family challenges in times of cultural and social change. A reader finds humour and irony, as well as important social history, on every page of this true-life story."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
