About This Item

Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, 1992 "Canada for the British" - that was the rallying cry of two-thousand British middle-class citizens who decided to follow charismatic but inept Isaac Barr to the Canadian prairies. Very few of them were farmers and added to that the imperialistic notion that British people were far superior to anyone else on earth. Lynne Bowen is the granddaughter of Barr colonists. She draws on letter, diaries, memoirs, and interviews to retell one of the most interesting chapters of Canadian history. Blue cloth, white titling to spine, SIGNED and inscribed by author to title page, a cluster of black and white photographs, 234 pages. Light edge wear, a small stripe of sunning to top and bottom, previous owner's blindstamp to ffep. Dust jacket shows minor shelf wear and is now protected in a Brodart cover.
