Abstract:

In 1836, Anna Jameson sailed from London, England, to join her husband in Upper Canada, where he was serving as attorney general. Shaking off the mud of Muddy York with mild disdain, young Mrs. Jameson swiftly sallied forth to discover the New World for herself. The best known of all nineteenth century Canadian travel books, Winter Studies and Summer Rambles in Canada is Jameson's wonderfully entertaining account of her adventures, ranging from gleeful observations about the pretensions of high society in the colonies to a "wild expedition" she took by canoe into Indian country. Jameson's keen eye, intrepid spirit, irreverent sense of humour and staunch feminist perspective make this journal an invaluable record of life in pre-Confederation Canada. From the Paperback edition.
