Why trace the lives and careers of two of Canada's most significant 19th century female writers, who first lived as English gentlewomen and then emigrated to the Canadian frontier? For one, it provides an opportunity to learn about the settling of the Canadian frontier from some primary sources (letters, journals and poetry).
