From the Prairies With Hope From the Prairies With Hope

by Aberson, Jane L.

Among the scribes in the Dutch press who tried to generate interest in life in Canada, Aberson stands out with her columns that were noted for clarity, humour and poignancy. She quickly built a devoted readership far beyond that of the daily Het Nieuwsblad van het Noorden, a point underscored during Abersonís lecture tours during her visits to the Netherlands. Following a historical overview with notes by historian Mark Boekelman, the book presents her columns from 1929 to 1936, although Aberson wrote for the paper for 37 years and was influential in attracting more emigrants.

Paperback, 177 pages, Some photographs.
