    that's my first dear Canada book I ever read and it was the book that encourage me to read more dear canada series. it was a sweet story and make me tear up at the end. The ending was expected but it was still sad.

    Considering I read this as an adult and it's written for children, I didn't have super high expectations for quality of authorship and historical authenticity. I was pleasantly surprised. The story was interesting enough to draw me in, and the history was good, down to the small details like herbal remedies. I read the book with friends while reenacting part of the experience of Loyalist refugees at an event at Ft. Saint Jean in Quebec, which was slightly surreal. I highly recommend the Dear Ame [...]

    Wow, what a read! I can't believe this diary is written by a 12/13 year old girl. It was done beautifully, and the description of events was so well done. It totally described what the loyalist went through during the late 1700. From school, I kind of learned what the loyalist went through, but to read it from a diary of a girl that went through it first hand, it was totally different experience. It made me really think about what they went through, and also get to know what my family went throu [...]

    "With Nothing But Our Courage" is by far my favourite book of the Dear Canada series. The author, Karleen Bradford, was able to create a story with characters that feel real to the reader. As well, her story does not drag on (such as a lot of books do) and therefore there are several events occurring throughout the story to keep the reader engaged and wanting to read more.

    My daughter has been reading "American Girl" and "Dear America" books for several years now, and they have introduced her to a number of different periods in American history. It occurred to me that there might be an advantage in getting the Canadian perspective on a few of these, so I ordered a few books in the "Dear Canada" series. I figured it would make sense for me to read them first before making my daughter read them. This book, which is the diary of a girl in a Loyalist family in the aft [...]

But in 1783, after the American Revolution, the family is forced to leave their home just because they supported the British in the war. They decide to head for Quebec, in British Canada. The journey is long, difficult, and dangerous, and the family faces many hardships along the way. Their troubles do not end when they reach their new home and must build a new life in the wilderness from almost nothing. Mary describes [...]

    Had to read this to prepare my grade 5's for their social studies project. While I love the Dear Canada/Dear America series, especially for their age group, this one was not the best. But I am probably bias in many ways. For starters, I'm not a grade 5. Secondly I'm not a city-born girl like many of the students in my class, so multiple entries about the weather and bugs isn't exactly exciting news to me. However, considering how many of my students are city-born, and even internationally born, [...]

    An interesting entry in the Dear Canada canon, but for my pick not the best one. This touched on a lot of interesting topics not usually covered in children's fiction--family fleeing a war zone, parents suffering from illness, and families struggling with a series of new homes. There's things I think could have been better developed, but overall I loved it as a counterpoint to the standard American discussion of the Revolutionary period, and I think it's a much stronger story than Dear America's [...]

    This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

    A little more pedestrian than the other D.C. titles. I'm finding many of the others more interesting because there are just pockets of information about Canadian history that I'm just in the dark on. I read one of the Dear America titles on this same topic not long ago and it was about the same interest level for me. I think I need to stick to more of the unknown.

    I've been reviewing the Dear Canada series for several days now, and I'm starting to run out of things to say! This, like all of the other books, was a great starting place for me to learn about a new subject pertaining to Canadian history. Great book to learn about the Loyalists during the American Revolution.

    Madison
    I loved this book not only because it was history, but because it was EXTREMELY fun to read. It really kept me reading (I finished it VERY quick! I couldn't put it down!), and gave you tons of information about the Loyalists in America in the late 18th century. Very sad at some parts, but still very amazing!

    Another book from the Dear Canada series, With Nothing But Our Courage is about the battle between the Loyalists and Patriots during the years 1783-1784. This story features a young girl, Mary MacDonald, and her family who travel from the United States to Canada after being forced from their home for being Loyalists. A great read for readers of all ages.

    So nothing incredibly exciting happened in this book, which is why in surprised I liked it so much! It's a sad story but it ends on a hopeful note. I'm glad this fictional family found a place to successfully relocate. also, it is sad how quickly people turn against each otheronce again

    This book was very interesting, and I really liked it. It was the first Dear Canada book I ever read, and one of my favouites. The events were surprising at times, like the fact that they found a dog, and that's one of the things I liked most about this book.

    In this book mary and her family are forced to migrate to Canada and leave their things behind. Luckily, mary makes a new friend, and starts to be happy again, until her sister margaret gets very sick. I learned that change can be good or bad. Auryn 12 years old, 2016

    I wholeheartedly enjoyed this diary. The perspective of Mary was incredible. Don't forget to read the epilogue. From here my journey of the Dear Canada books does commence. All in all a fabulous historical read. A good read.

    I don't know if these books have an age limit but I just love the history aspect to it, plus it's about the country where I was born and raised. The stories give you a form of pride in where you come from. If you like history these are good books to check out.

    I coudn't take this book out of my hands! I recommend it to EVERYONE. It's amazing!

    After finishing this book I'm more willing to read the rest of the Dear Canada series. There's many things to tell about this book, I'll add it to the review later. Loved it so much.

    Lilly Thompson
    incredible interperatation of what it was like to be a loyalist!

    Meghan
    This topic doesn't get talked about enough. It did a good job showing the struggle between missing home and realizing why you can't go back.

    Review to come!

    I really enjoyed this pioneer story, despite the anachronism "wait for it, Dear Journal". xD

    Remember reading this as a child.

    A lovely book with great insights into what the Loyalists had to go through when they were forced to leave their homes in the Revolutionary War and find new homes, many in Canada. Two thumbs up.
