MOODIE, Susanna

Bungay, Suffolk, England, 1803
Toronto, Ontario, 1885
Notice biographique
Although well known for her writings as a pioneer woman's life in Canada, Susanna Moodie (née Strickland) also sketched and painted, especially botanical paintings of Canadian wild flowers. While preparing for a literary career in England, she married John Wedderburn Dunbar Moodie and moved to Canada in 1831. In Ontario, Susanna Moodie’s three best literary works, "Roughing it in the Bush," "Life in the Clearings," and "Flora Lyndsay," constitute a chronicle of immigrant and pioneer experience dealing with all phases of the process; they included sketches as well.
