1 - 2 weeks availability
This anthology combines some of the finest writing by such well-known writers as Leacock, Moodie, Ernest Thompson Seton and Lucy Maud Montgomery with fascinating pieces by lesser-known names such as George Copway (the first Canadian native writer to have his work published in English) and Lady Agnes Macdonald (the wife of Canada's first prime minister, and a popular writer of great verve and enthusiasm). In addition to three genres of fiction the anthology includes two important varieties of non-fiction in which early Canadians made a strong and distinctive contribution: Travel and Exploration Narratives and Memoirs and Descriptive Sketches.
R. G. Moyles , a professor in the English Department at the University of Alberta is the author or editor of several other books including (with Doug Owram) Imperial Dreams and Colonial Realities: British Views of Canada 1880-1914 (Univ. of Toronto Press, 1988).
