Marryat, Frederick: The Settlers in Canada v1 27 jan 2009
“The Settlers in Canada” was published in 1844, the twenty-first book to flow from Marryat’s pen. Marryat’s later books were written for a juvenile readership. This book is notable because it is not in Marryat’s earlier style, in that the narrative flows forward in a steady style, without the introduction of the usual asides which make his nautical books so readable. The subject material, set in the Canadian wilderness, is very well treated: in fact one might almost say that he had read the works of the later masters of Canadian wilderness writing, Ballantyne or Egerton Ryerson Young. Another feature which is unusual for him is the shortness and evenness of the chapters; nor are there any of the long paragraphs normal for his earlier works. This helps to make the book so suitable as a children’s book.
Gorgeous cover by ravenne, nice illustrations, source Athelstane.
