"(T)ells the story of Sara Jeannette Duncan, a popular Canadian writer at the turn of the century. Redney began as a beautiful young journalist, a restless romantic and a world traveller. Her writing career took her from her home in Brantford, Ontario, first to New Orleans - where she had a romantic fling with the 'Byron of the Rockies', the flamboyant Joaquin Miller - and then to adventures in Washington, Toronto, Montreal, and as far afield as Tokyo and London. Redney married and settled in India - feeling trapped, she began to write her many novels and at last summoned up the Canada of her childhood in her masterpiece, 'The Imperialist'. (This book) explores the psychology and talent of a remarkable woman and evokes for us the scenes and manners of a vanished, colourful past." Minor edge wear to boards.
