Echoes From Labor's War
For those who are interested in reading more by and about Dawn
Fraser, we highly recommend Echoes From Laborís Wars: The Expanded
Edition, published in 1992 by Breton Books.
It includes the
Introduction by Frank & Macgillivray, all of the poems from the 1976
additional poems and articles by Fraser, including an autobiographical
this for only $9.95! It can be ordered directly from
Dawn Fraser, whose story is told in the following pages, first
published a collection of his poems about the minersí struggles in Cape
Breton under the title Echoes From Laborís War, in 1926.
years later, David Frank and Donald Macgillivray collected those poems
and some others, with explanatory notes written by Fraser in the 1940s,
and wrote an extensive introduction on Fraserís life and work. That
book, Echoes From Laborís War: Industrial Cape Breton
in the 1920s, was published in 1976 by New Hogtown Press. It is no
longer in print.
David Frank and Donald Macgillivray have kindly granted the Socialist
History Project permission to post their Introduction and their
selection of Fraserís poetry on this website.
