What drives people to search for new homes? From war zones to politics, there are many reasons why people have always searched for a place to call home.

In Finding Home: The Journey of Immigrants and Refugees we discover how human migration has shaped our world.

We explore its origins and the current issues facing immigrants and refugees today, and we hear the first-hand stories of people who have moved across the globe looking for safety, security and happiness. Author Jen Sookfong Lee shares her personal experience of growing up as the child of immigrants and gives a human face to the realities of being an immigrant or refugee today. (From Puffin Canada)
