Description

1912. Part Three of Eighteen Volumes. Gilbert, Canadian-born novelist and politician, his literary reputation lies primarily on his earlier descriptive, dramatic and historic Canadian stories. He moved to England in 1889 and later served in Parliament. Parker explains that in this edition of his work, each volume will have a special introduction setting forth, as far as possible, the relation of each work to the author, to its companion works, and to the scheme of his literary life. Northern Lights belongs to an epoch which is a generation later than that in which Pierre and His People moved. With the advent of the railroad, the rise of town and cities accompanied by an amazing growth in population, the character of isolation and pathetic loneliness that marked the days of Pierre was gone. The first five tales in Northern lights are reminiscent of border days and deeds; of days before the great railway was built, changing a waste into a fertile field of civilization. The remaining stories cover the period passed since the Royal North-West Mounted Police and the Pullman car first startled the early pioneer, and sent him into the land of the farther North, or drew him into the quiet circle of civic routine and humdrum occupation.
