Description


Complete digitally restored reprint (facsimile) of the original edition of 1854 with excellent resolution and outstanding readability. Catherine Parr Strickland Traill (born January 9, 1802, died August 29, 1899). She was an English-Canadian author and naturalist who wrote about life as a settler in Canada. Her many albums of plant collections are housed in the National Herbarium of Canada at the Canadian Museum of Nature. "The Female Emigrant's Guide, and Hints on Canadian Housekeeping" is a window into the Canadian way of life. She explains common household chores with great lan making this book an enjoyable read. The sections on cooking and specific recipes are perhaps the mainstay of this work as Traill provides valuable insight into the peculiarities of the Canadian kitchen. The book is an excellent resource for the general reader to understand Canada better. On 8 September 2003, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Library of Canada, Canada Post released a special commemorative series, "The Writers of Canada", featuring two English-Canadian and two French-Canadian stamps. Three million stamps were issued. Traill and her sister Susanna Moodie were featured on one of the English-Canadian stamps.
