The Canadian Experience Sisters in the Wilderness

The Canadian Experience Sisters in the Wilderness

In England, they had been rising literary stars: educated, cultured and refined. They were hopelessly unprepared for life in the rough-and-tumble new colony, where it was a wrenching struggle simply to survive. And yet, despite illness and poverty, and at times near starvation, the two women never stopped writing, leaving an unparalleled record of life in early Canada. Their story is one of envy, ambition, passion, staggering hardship and unprecedented success. Adapted from the award-winning book by Charlotte Gray, Sisters in the Wilderness is a tale of perseverance and survival on the Canadian frontier.
