McClung skilfully weaves together a series of social critiques in a tale of love, vocation, and coming-of-age, which sees Pearl, as a prototypical McClung, take on the corrupt Conservative government of Manitoba - and win. Purple Springs explores an important piece of Canadian social history.

Stories subversive : through the field with gloves off : short fiction by Nellie L McClung( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First-wave feminist, activist and social reformer, Nellie McClung ranked as one of the most popular Canadian authors and among the liveliest critics of Canada's male-dominated society of the early 1900s. Well ahead of her time, McClung was known as a writer who dared to discuss taboo topics, and for her inimitable humour which rivals that of Stephen Leacock, Canada's best-known humourist. This selection of her best short fiction includes depictions of difficult rural living conditions in Western Canada as well as "consciousness-raising" stories reflecting the undue restrictions on women and the anti-female laws and attitudes of the day. While most were published in U.S. and Canadian magazines between 1906 and 1931, a few of these stories appear here for the first time. In addition, a detailed introduction discusses McClung's life and analyses the themes and stylistic touches of each of the stories making up this unique anthology
Painted fires by Nellie L McClung( Book )

20 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in English and Finnish and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Painted Fires, first published in 1925, narrates the trials and tribulations of Helmi Milander, a Finnish immigrant, during the years approaching the First World War. The novel serves as a vehicle for McClung's social activism, especially in terms of temperance, woman suffrage, and immigration policies that favour cultural assimilation. In her afterword, Cecily Devereux situates Painted Fires in the context of McClung's feminist fiction and her interest in contemporary questions of immigration and "naturalization." She also considers how McClung's representation of Helmi Milander's story draws on popular culture narratives"--Back cover
