Another one for the Settler-Colonial Modernities course. Also fascinating! Features author being disappointed by Niagara Falls & complaining about the cold, so there's something startlingly contemporary about it.

My dad introduced me to this book when I was a teenager, and it has become my favourite memoir of Canadian pioneer life. Anna Jamieson takes me right into her life. Like walking into a backwoods Jane Austen.
