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.We dressed lying down and breakfasted in the dining car for $1.50 between us. ... two women who can walk out of a strange station with that determined look on their faces will be able to make the Rat River all right, though ita#39;s a tough journey.
