Forest and Other Gleanings: The Fugitive Writings of Catharine Parr Traill (Canadian Short Story Library #18) (Paperback)
Email or call for price.
Forest and other Gleanings reclaims for the contemporary reader a number of stories and sketches written by Catharine Parr Traill after her emigration to Canada in 1832. While most pieces collected here appeared in magazines in Britain, the United States, and Canada, a few have been drawn from archival holdings and make their first appearance here. This collection seeks, as it were, to complete her aspirations and to offer readers interested in Traill and 19th-century Upper Canada a gleaning of her better sketches and stories.
