Roughing it in the Bush is the compelling true story of pioneer Susanna Moodie’s experience immigrating to Canada with her sister, Catharine Parr Traill, in the 1830s. Moodie’s narrative is a frank, sometimes humorous, portrayal of life in the Canadian wild, capturing the physical demands of homesteading and the complex personal relationships between settlers.
Initially conceived as a “guide” for British subjects considering immigrating to Canada, Roughing it in the Bush is part of a trilogy that also includes Flora Lyndsay and Life in the Clearings, and continues to inform and inspire Canadians about what life was like at the birth of a nation.
