1 McLean, Scott A. and Vance, Michael E., editors. (William Wye Smith) WILLIAM WYE SMITH: RECOLLECTIONS OF A NINETEENTH CENTURY SCOTTISH CANADIAN.
Natural Heritage, Toronto, 2008, first edition. 
421 pp, large 8vo (9" H), soft cover. ISBN 9781550028041 B&w illustrations. "Many nineteenth-century writers highlighted the difficulties recent immigrants faced - the clearing of forest and the breaking of new ground, the isolation and long Canad ian winters - and emphasized what they perceived as the negative, alienating influences of Ontario's rapid urban and industrial expansion. In turn, however, they celebrated the progress demonstrated in the pioneers' domination over nature, th e e s t a blishment of thriving communities, and the extension of transportation networks. William Wye Smith, a popular nineteenth-century Upper Canadian poet, was no exception. Smith prepared his 'Canadian Reminiscences', a handwritten compilati on of a ne cd otes that relate to his experiences as journalist, clergyman, and son of Scottish settlers, to provide his own unique perspective of pioneer life. This fully annotated version of his unpublished manuscript highlights Smith's unwitti ng t est imo ny to the social life of the province, his relationship to the construction and maintenance of Scottish and Canadian identity, and his position in literary history." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - t in y so ft c orn er crease. Near Fine
