The Ladies, the Gwich'in, and the Rat

Travels on the Athabasca, Mackenzie, Rat, Porcupine, and Yukon Rivers in 1926

In 1926, two British women came from Cornwall to Edmonton and travelled through northern Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon by rail, sternwheeler, and canoe. For the women, it was a liberating experience, yet Vyvyan's narrative, supported by MacLaren and LaFramboise's insightful editorial work, reveals the imperialist attitudes underlying their travels.
