The Journals of Susanna Moodie
Margaret Atwood’s inspiration for this collection of poems was Susanna Moodie’s Roughing it in the Bush, in which the Suffolk-born writer recorded her life as a settler in the Canadian backwoods in the 1830s. Covering Moodie’s arrival in the country, her move to Belleville and her later years, the poems were published in a limited edition in 1980 with illustrations by Charles Pachter. This facsimile edition includes a memoir by Pachter. Slipcased. Off-mint.
