WhenRoughing It in the Bushwas published in 1852, it created an international sensation, not only for Susanna Moodie's "glowing narrative of personal incident," but also for her firm determination to puncture the illusions European land-agents were circulating about life in Canada. This frank and fascinating chronicle details her harsh -- and humorous -- experiences in homesteading with her family in the woods of Upper Canada. Part documentary, part psychological parable,Roughing It in the Bushis, above all, an honest account of how one woman coped not only in a new world, but, more importantly, with herself. The New Canadian Library edition is an unabridged reprint of the complete original text.
