The Red River Diary of Isobel Scott, Rupert's Land, 1815
Isobel thinks that she and her family will find their fortune in Canada. But Isobel's mother dies before they even cross the ocean, and other misfortunes seem to follow their every step.
Isobel's family and the other Selkirk Settlers find themselves caught in the fur-trading rivalry between the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company. They cannot even start to build once they finally reach their destination. The harsh climate and escalating threats against the settlers make it impossible to start a new life.
Only through perseverance and help from the local Cree band are Isobel and her family able to put down roots in the Red River Valley.
These books are written with extensive historical research.
