    Blood and Salt does a great job at exposing the horrors of internment camps and the nonsensical captivity of Ukrainian Canadians, whose people were conquered by Austria but were not sympathetic of Austria's cause. The Ukrainian scenes felt very fairytale-ish, contrasted against the darkness of Banff and Castle Mountain. Loved the scenes with Halya, but Taras Shevchenko's scenes felt too didactic, more like a textbook than a novel. Much of the book felt mechanical and clunky, like the author, in [...]

    Blood and Salt By Barbaa Sapergia This story ia based on true facts of the Ukraenians living in Canada being interned during WWI in Canada. The Canadians were fighting in Austria and Austria ruled over the Ukraine. The men from Ukraine were interned near Banff and the Castle Mountains in Canada. The author brought out how the men kept their spirits up, telling storys, remembering poems and playing cards then they weren't shoveling snow or clearing trails. they all wanted to escape and have freed [...]

    This book is a must-read for anyone with Ukrainian roots. Or anyone who cares about social injustice and racism in Canadian history. Or anyone who wonders how men with disparate personalities can forge bonds closer than brothers. Or anyone who enjoys a poignant love storyThe story begins just before World War 1 when the Canadian government is courting Ukrainians to homestead on the raw, open Canadian prairies. Our protagonist, Taras Kalyna, flees to Canada with his peasant family to avoid conscr [...]

    In 1915 Canada declared war on Germany and Austria. In what is one of the most shameful and despicable times for the Canadian government, they interned over 8,000 immigrants, mostly Ukrainians, as enemy aliens. Part of Ukraine was under Austrian rule at the time. These were immigrants that the Canadian government pursued to come to this country to fill many jobs and to break land in the prairies. These were proud and patriotic Ukrainians who wanted a country of their own and if not Ukraine than [...]

    This book may be viewed as a history lesson, a love story, an ethno-political dissertation or an account of survival of adversity. In fact it is all of those and more. Above all, it reminds us of a shameful episode in Canadian history, largely forgotten today except by Canadians of Ukrainian background. The protagonist, Taras and his fellow detainees certainly undergo the trials of Job, made particularly painful by the fact of their total innocence of any wrongdoing or evil intent. Their only si [...]

    This is a book that I knew I'd be fascinated by: it tells the story of Ukrainian Canadians who were placed in internment camps during WWI, under the mistaken assumption that they belonged to the AustroHungarian empire and were therefore enemy aliens.The fact that there were Ukrainian internment camps comes as a surprise to many people; but there were, both in Western and Eastern Canada. This is a book written in a simple, conversational tone. It isn't fancy. It tells an important story in a way [...]

    I learned a lot about the history my country never really talks about. Sadly, the truths about serfdom and freedom still apply today.

    I really enjoyed the book. With having a Ukrainian heritage, and knowing about the internment camps, this story added the human side to the facts. I encourage everyone to read it!
