"One Migrant Experience" is a wise and personal guidebook for those who would jouney to another culture. Thank you for sharing those memories. They are treasures."
Chris Elliott,Director,La Conner-Workshop,Wash.,USA
"Martin Kari vividly depicts the first experiences of his immigrant family 'down-under'- the initial difficulties due to the severe climate, the tough labour market, but there is also the realization of the untamed beauty and great potential of this vast continent."
Harro Grabolle, PhD. Heidelberg, Germany
"This book gives an insight into the life of a migrant, how difficult it might become, even with the knowledge of the language- finding a way into the social fabric, the culture and values of a new country like Australia."
Pirkko Leskinen, Sipoo, Finland
"This book gives a great inside into how and why many migrants found their way to our shores and how difficult it must be. Many migrants have arrived in Australia for many reasons - cultural, political, social or with a desire to begin a new life."
John Morrow's, Pick of the Week
"The author is a man blessed with a sense of adventure, exploration, intelligence and humanity. For a man born of such impoverished and tragic beginnings during World War II he has defied the odds to become a 'global' citizen with many entertaining stories to tell. Martin also points out that it is our successful multiculturism that also makes Australia great - we have tolerance and mutual respect."
