1 Cormack, Barbara Villy Westward Ho! 1903
Canada Burns & MacEachern Limited 1967 Reprint Hardcover Very Good Good 
Copyright date 1967. In the early years of the twentieth century, a clergyman named Barr barnstormed throughout England, seeking settlers for a coloy he proposed to establish in Canada's North West Territories. The areas set aside for settlement lay north of the modern city of North Battleford, Saskatchemwan, which had been the territorial capital, and straddled the boundary of the present provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Rev. Mr. Barr was an extraordinary character; to this day no one has determined whether he was a misguided idealist or an out-and-out rogue. Certainly he did not stay to face the consequences of the poor organization of the journey of his settlers, or the breakdown of the arrangements for the coloony. It was another clergyman, the much-loved Bishop Lloyd, who saw the colonists to their new homes. Against this historical background, the author has constructed a fictional account of the journey made by an English family from Manchester to the Barr Colony, and of its first year in its new home. Contains historical references. Former owner's name and information upon front endpaper. Dust jacket is moderately worn but for wrinkling and tearing to the top half inch along the spine.
