337 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H). B&w photographs. Uncovers the secret of Alice Freeman/Faith Fenton, "the unconventional daughter of a shopkeeper who took on another identity (from her daytime job as a respectable schoolteacher) to penetrate the closed, very male world of journalism. As columnist Faith Fenton she moved with ease through society, equally at home with the rich and powerful and the less fortunate - from Lady Aberdeen, wife of the Governor General, to the working mothers of Toronto's slums. She was everywhere, attending costume balls, visiting an aging Sir John A. Macdonald, interviewing the fiery suffragette Susan B. Anthony, covering sensational murder trials. At the height of the Klondike gold rush she reinvented herself once again, heading for Dawson City where she became the first northern correspondent for 'The Globe' and married the love of her life." Very soft bump to bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, light wrinkling at top edge of front panel/flap and tiny tear at top of front flap-fold.
