Scope and content

"Adventures of a farm girl in Canada in 1925, by Joan Simpson, with a forward by her god-daughter, June Knowles": four reminiscences about life on a cattle ranch and in a fruit growing area of British Columbia by a young English woman who spent a year or two in British Columbia (according to the reminiscence entitled "Fruit Picking", p. 6, in the early '30s). Although both personal and geographical names have been changed, the ranch on which Miss Simpson worked was undoubtedly the Church Ranch at Big Creek in the Chilcotin district.
