The author shares the legacy of his father by starting a new life in a foreign land.


The life of the peddler, in many cases, proved to be extremely interesting where they travelled a lot and met many different people.

Richard Asmet Awid’s book “Walk With Me, My Son: You and I Have Some Stories to Tell” was recently displayed by self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet at the 2023 London Book Fair. The book trade fair was held at Olympia London, London, UK, last April 18-20, 2023.

“Walk With Me, My Son” tells the story of how a nineteen-year-old, Ehmid Alley Awid, becomes a part of the Lebanese-Canadian community history.

Ehmid, Richard Asmet Awid’s father, and his friend Ali Tarrabain decided to go to Canada in 1901 to try their luck in the foreign country to become rich. They packed their bags, and Ehmid said goodbye to his family, not knowing that it will be the last time to see them alive.

“Walk With Me, My Son” tells not only the history of a family in Canada but also the history of that country’s Canadian-Lebanese community. The author shares how proud they are of their Arab name because it contains generations of other names. Moreover, the book also tells how their names were changed in a foreign country without their consent. It immortalizes the story of a family that had taken a step into history and built a community and home in a foreign land.

Readers can get lost in the stories and family histories as they learn how a community came to be.
