4.0 out of 5 stars An How to Do It Guide to Suriving in Rural Canada, Oct. 20 2003
By 
Courtney Jonas (Canton, New York) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Backwoods of Canada (Mass Market Paperback)
If you're interested in how people lived in rural Canada during the 1800s, this book will give a first hand account. The book is composed of the author's letters back home to England, and answering questions from friends back home. She gives detail encounters of the voyage to her new home, cultivating the land, the hardships they face with their land, diseases, and the climate, and who is best suited for this type of life. Catharine Parr Traill is a great storyteller who is engaging and very descriptive in her writings. This is a good book if you want to really see what life was like for the early pioneers in North America.

Lots of good information on pioneer life in upper Canada (1830,s). The Author also includes information on wild flowers and plants that she comes across while living near Peterborough, Canada. She is a keen observer so the book makes interesting reading. I really enjoyed it.
