In his new book MAD FLIGHT? The Quebec Emigration to the Coffee Plantations of Brazil (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2018), Professor John Zucchi reconstructs the 1896 rush of one thousand Quebeckers to find riches on the coffee plantations in Santos (Brazil), and how this adventure ended for many in poverty, tragedy, and even death.
