First edition in stiff illustrated wrappers. Series of connected poems which together form a narrative about the experiences of an Englishwoman who emigrated to Canada in 1832, where she settled in the bush on a farm with her husband. The cover is a design by Atwood, (as are the collages in the book) but spoiled, according to her, by the publisher adding red to it, without her knowlege or consent. 64 pp. Very near fine in stiff illustrated wrappers - a tight and attractive copy. .
