Summary Many early Chinese settlers to Canada were bachelors who settled in Prairie towns and cities, opened the region's first laundries, and invented the Chinese cafe. They maintained ties to the Old World and negotiated a place in the new by fostering a vibrant homosocial culture based on friendship, everyday religious practices, the example of Sun Yatsen, and food. This exploration of the intersection of gender, migration, and religion in rural Canada broadens our understanding of the Chinese quest for identity in North America. With a Foreword by the Honourable Inky Mark, former member of Parliament for Dauphin-Swan River-Marquette. </body> </html>
