"During the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth century, thousands of well-born, gently bred Britons emigrated to Canada... Some came in search of wealth or adventure, some came to escape debts and scandals. Most came, however, because they were unable to find suitable vocations in the Old Country... They trooped in the Canadian backwoods and across the western prairies, bringing culture and colour to many pioneer communities." - from dust jacket. Signed and inscribed by author upon title page, otherwise book clean and unmarked with moderate wear. Dust jacket heavily sunned and now preserved in archival-grade Brodart cover. A sound copy.
