Sisters In The Wilderness Canadian Experience DVD
Running Time: 87 Minutes
Growing up in early 19th century England, sisters Susanna and Catharine Parr Strickland dream of becoming famous writers. When the sisters and their husbands left their genteel life in England to emigrate to Upper Canada in 1832, they pictured an effortless rise to the top of colonial society. But they were hopelessly unprepared for life in the rough-and-tumble new colony, where it was a wrenching struggle simply to survive. And yet, despite illness and poverty, and at times near starvation, the two women never stopped writing, leaving an unparalleled record of life in early Canada. Adapted from the award-winning book by Charlotte Gray, this is a tale of perseverance and survival on the Canadian frontier.
