summary
Pioneering Women is an anthology of short fiction written before 1880 by Canadian women, including Susanna Moodie, Catharine Parr Traill, and Rosanna Mullins Leprohon. From the Maritimes to Upper Canada, from backwoods to the drawing room, this collection demonstrates the variety that exists in stories by women of early British North America.
