Travels and Tales of Miriam Green Ellis: Pioneer Journalist of the Canadian West

by

Travels and Tales of Miriam Green Ellis: Pioneer Journalist of the Canadian West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Demers revives the memory of journalist Miriam Green Ellis, an all-but-forgotten feminist, suffragist, and agricultural reporter who documented the modernist sphere for over four decades and who refused to be confined to the “women’s pages.” With written material from the University of Alberta’s Miriam Green Ellis Collection, accompanied by an excellent selection of photographs, Ellis’s inimitable voice and views on Albertans, westerners, and Canadians in the early decades of the twentieth century emerge clearly. Canadian women studies, journalism students, and feminists will find Ellis’s highly colored perspective both entertaining and informational.

Synopsis:

Looking at early twentieth-century westerners through the writings of an acerbic female agricultural journalist.
