Letters of a Woman Homesteader by Elinore Pruitt Stewart - The writer of the following letters is a young woman who lost her husband in a railroad accident and went to Denver to seek support for herself and her two-year-old daughter, Jerrine. Turning her hand to the nearest work, she went out by the day as house-cleaner and laundress. Later, seeking to better herself, she accepted employment as a housekeeper for a well-to-do Scotch cattle-man, Mr. Stewart, who had taken up a quarter-section in Wyoming. The letters, written through several years to a former employer in Denver, tell the story of her new life in the new country. They are genuine letters, and are printed as written, except for occasional omissions and the alteration of some of the names. 4 Park St.
This is the story of William Johnson a migrant from Jamaica, who went to England in the 1950s. It was here that he was first subjected to racism. He found that the culture he had left behind was vastly different to the country he would now be living in. William along with countless other young migrants from the Caribbean expected to be here for no more than five years before being able to return home with money they had saved from working in England. Sadly this never happened. Not only for William but for many thousands more. 'Going Home' takes us on a journey from Jamaica to England, and a life spent longing to return home. A rollercoaster of emotions ensue.

This is true, also, though naturally in a less degree, of the townsman who fattens one or two pigs on the family kitchen slops, adding sufficient grain ration to finish off the pork for autumn slaughter.
