About This Item

Vancouver and London: University Of British Columbia Press, 1982. This collection of articles and extracts from books and periodicals describes in detail the opportunities in Western Canada for British women imigrants. By 1900 there was a great demand both for wives and for workers in a variety of occupations. "Women Wanted" was the message conveyed by public officials, journalists and public-spirited women who travelled across Canada and reported on their findings. To some it was a life of unaccustomed drudgery, loneliness and prejudice... Illustrated b/w plates accompany text. Brown cloth boards. No inscription or owner marking. Very faint color fade to spine of dust jacket. A very nice copy.. Second Printing. Hard Cover. Fine/Near Fine.
