About this book

Story of the Trent Valley during the C19, a settler society and a microcosm for wider human and environmental changes throughout North America. Neil Forkey makes a significant contribution to work on Canadian environmental history. Ethnicity and environment in the Trent Valley are compared to other areas of contemporary settlement throughout the British Empire and North America. Begins by placing his study within the literature of settler societies of Upper Canada and North America. Discusses the Trent Valley's geography, prehistory, and Native peoples alongside the Anglo-Celtic migrations and "resettlement" of the area. 4 case studies of environmental, social, and cultural change are presented. Charts the life and nature writings of Catherine Parr Traill.
