Roughing It in the Bush, Or, Forest Life in CanadaBook - 1988
When Roughing It in the Bush was 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.
