Across the River to Motor City

This looks like a wonderful series, so I'll be looking for it online soon. From an academic perspective, I'm interested in the cross-cultural, cross-national exploration of identity and the retelling of this very American story (in the form of a a counter-factual history) through a Canadian lens.

from Wikipedia
