Description

1912. Part One 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. Pierre and His People is his first work. The adventures and experiences of Pretty Pierre, who is French and Indian, extend from Quebec in the east to British Columbia in the west, and from the Cypress Hills in the south to the Coppermine River in the north. He passes through this series of stories, connecting them, as he himself connects two races, and here and there links the past of the Hudson's Bay Company with more modern life and Canadian energy pushing northward. Here is something of romance pure and simple, but also traditions and character, which are the single property of this austere but not cheerless heritage of our race. Contents: The Patrol of the Cypress Hills; God's Garrison; A Hazard of the North; A Prairie Vagabond; She of the Triple Chevron; Three Outlaws; Shon McGann's Tobogan Ride; Pere Champagne; The Scarlet Hunter; The Stone; The Tall Master; The Crimson Flag; The Flood; In Pipi Valley; Antoine and Angelique; The Cipher; A Tragedy of Nobodies; and A Sanctuary of the Plains.
