Roughing It in the Bush

Roughing It in the Bush by Susanna Moodie

Roughing It in the Bush by Susanna Moodie

‘Roughing It In the Bush’ is Susanna Moodie’s account of how she coped with the harshness of life in the woods of Upper Canada, as an Englishwoman homesteading abroad. Her narrative was constructed partly as a response to the glowing falsehoods European land-agents were circulating about life in the New World. Her chronicle is frank and humorous, and was a popular sensation at the time of its publication in 1852.

The Story of Gösta Berling

The Story of Gösta Berling  by Selma Lagerlöf

The Story of Gösta Berling by Selma Lagerlöf

The tales are founded on actual occurrences and depict the life in the province of Värmland at the beginning of the 19th Century century. Värmland is a lonely tract in the southern part of Sweden, and has retained many of its old customs, while mining is the principal industry of its sparse population. It consists of great stretches of forest, sloping down to long, narrow lakes, connected by rivers.

Miss Lagerlöf has grown up in the midst of the wild legends of her country, and, deeply imbued with their spirit, interprets them with a living force all her own.
