Overview

Roughing It in the Bush chronicles Susanna Moodie's harsh and often humorous experiences homesteading in the woods of Upper Canada. A frank and fascinating account of how one woman coped, not only with a new world, but a new self, it punctures illusions once circulated about life in the Dominion. This unabridged text continues to justify the international sensation it caused when it was first published in 1852.
