Description:
Canada: Douglas & McIntyre, 1992. Hardcover 1st edition - Some shelf and edgewear, otherwise a good clean solid copy. Dust jacket is in great condition. When two thousand British bank clerks, butchers, housewives, saleswomen, remittance men and ex-Boer War soldiers followed the charismatic but inept Anglican minister, Isaac Barr, to the Canadian prairies in 1903 their rallying cry was 'Canada for the British.' Despite the Canadian government’s expectations and Barr’s assurances, however, very few of the colonists knew anything about farming. As the granddaughter of Barr colonists, Lynne Bowen grew up on stories of what it was like to be young and green in the huge, raw Canadian west. These are those stories.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Illlustrated.
