Travels and Tales of Miriam Green Ellis

Pioneer Journalist of the Canadian West

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. Readers interested in Canadian women studies, journalism, or feminism will find Ellis's highly coloured perspective both entertaining and informative.

About the Authors

Pioneering agricultural journalist Miriam Green Ellis (1879-1964) exulted in wearing what she called "seven league boots" to visit the farms and families of her huge "Western parish." Alert, intuitive and keenly observant, she always embraced "the adventure of the unexpected." The resourcefulness and determination she showed in her 1922 river steamer journey to Aklavik, Northwest Territories, have left us with remarkable textual and photographic images of her passage from the metropole to the periphery. Patricia Demers, Distinguished University Professor in the Department of English and Film Studies and the Comparative Literature program at the University of Alberta, teaches and researches in the area of women's writing-from the early modern period to the present.
