Train Country Emigrant is a collection of three poems by Sarah Klassen. “Train: 1929” and “Emigrant” first appeared in Klassen’s first book, Journey to Yalta (1988, Turnstone Press). The subject of an early twentieth century European migration is contrasted with an intimate connection to an much more recent newcomer, in “Country”. In an inverted centre-fold, a faded archival photo has been reproduced from the writer’s archive.
