Much of the development of regions and communities on both sides of the United States-Canada border resulted from migration. "With Scarcely a Ripple", the first study to link persistence, immigration, internal migration, and return migration, looks beyond the narrowly defined geographical and temporal boundaries of the aggregate census to clarify the social, economic, and demographic adjustments made at the turn of the century by both transient and persistent Anglo-Canadian migrants. Using a prosopographical approach that combines descriptive exposition, quantitative tabulation, and structural analysis, Randy Widdis determines the geographical and social origins of migrants, the distance and direction of migration corridors, and geographical destinations in both the United States and Canada. The study provides a new view of the invisible Anglo-Canadian, one of the largest and least understood immigrant groups in the United States. Widdis's results show that there were many differences between Anglo-Canadians, and that their experience in the United States was much more complex than is usually assumed. "With Scarcely a Ripple" not only contributes to our understanding of the dynamics of intra-regional, inter-regional, and return Anglo-Canadian migration but also interprets this movement in terms of the paradox of an emerging Canadian identity and a developing integration with the United States. It offers a historical geographical perspective on a subject that, in this era of free trade and globalisation, is more relevant than ever. Randy William Widdis is associate professor of geography at the University of Regina.

"A very major addition to the historiography on Anglo-Canadian migration and migration within North America generally. Widdis has combed an immense array of sources to excellent effect and has made this a human story. He includes just about all significant aspects of Anglo-Canadian migration west of Quebec." Walter Nugent, Department of History, Notre Dame.
