In 1890, Harry and Mary Ann Foote arrived on Coast Salish territory and purchased Jedediah - a private island. Starting with the simple question "Where am I from?", this narrative traces one family across Canada and through hundreds of years to share a personal lens on the lived experience of settler colonization. Drawing on original letters, transcripts, and oral histories, the book weaves connections between the stories of specific ancestors and their connection to land, treaties, and Indigenous peoples at that time.

Accounts include colourful stories of homesteading on Jedediah Island, in what is now known as British Columbia, construction of the parliament buildings on Epekwitk (Prince Edward Island), life during the so-called "Indian Wars" of the 1700s, and homesteading on the shores of Ouentironk (Lake Simcoe). The earliest stories go back to the 1600s, when a settler with the unlikely name of Peter Rambo was one of the earliest founders of a settlement called New Sweden in what we now call Pennsylvania.
