Lady's Life on a Farm in Manitoba

by Mrs Cecil Hall

This is NOT a "Little House on the Prairie" adventure! This is the diary of two wealthy travelers from Europe to
the United States and Canada. The writer is obviously
well educated and her observations are clear and detailed. This "diary" is entertaining to me personally
because although the ladies certainly were "roughing" it greatly compared to todays world they enjoyed quite a few luxuries not available to the ordinary pioneers settling a new frontier. Again, their obvious wealth made their travels easier. They worked harder than I ever have had to on the farm they visited and were hardy ladies for sure. An entertaining read.
