In 1926, two British women came from Cornwall to Edmonton and travelled through northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon by rail, sternwheeler, and canoe. For the women, it was a liberating experience, yet Vyvyan's narrative, supported by MacLaren and LaFramboise's insightful editorial work, reveals the imperialist attitudes underlying their travels.
“This remarkable and very attractive volume leaves one with a fresh and lively impression of the people and places of the North in a particular era…
“An informative double-voiced text that allows the reader to see what Vyvyan did not include from her field notes in her original publication.”
