The History of Emily Montague

Universitas Press
The History of Emily Montague is considered the first Canadian novel. Written by a British colonist, Frances Brooke, in an epistolary form, the novel is remarkable for its observations of the lives and traditions of Quebecers and "Natives," as well as the manners of the upper-British classes. This is a scholarly edition that brings to light new information about the times and the context of the novel.
