R505 Discovery Miles 5 050 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Both an adventure-laced captivity tale and an impassioned denunciation of the marginalization of Indigenous culture in the face of European colonial expansion, Douglass Smith Huyghue's Argimou (1847) is the first Canadian novel to describe the fall of eighteenth-century Fort Beausejour and the expulsion of the Acadians. Its integration of the untamed New Brunswick landscape into the narrative, including a dramatic finale that takes place over the reversing falls in Saint John, intensifies a sense of the heroic proportions of the novel's protagonist, Argimou. Even if read as an escapist romance and captivity tale, Argimou captures for posterity a sense of the Tantramar mists, boundless forests, and majestic waters informing the topographical character of pre-Victorian New Brunswick. Its snapshot of the human suffering occasioned by the 1755 expulsion of the Acadians, and its appeal to Victorian readers to pay attention to the increasingly disenfranchised state of Indigenous peoples, make the novel a valuable contribution to early Canadian fiction. Situating the novel in its eighteenth-century historical and geographical context, the afterword to this new edition foregrounds the author's skilful adaptation of historical-fiction conventions popularized by Sir Walter Scott and additionally highlights his social concern for the fate of Indigenous cultures in nineteenth-century Maritime Canada.

Within weeks the Comeaus find themselves in the reeking hold of a ship, cruelly exiled from their Acadian homes. Barbe believes the charming English officer must have betrayed her; when he comes to her in her new Virginia home, however, she realizes he, too, has sacrificed much for love.

When Gay Vandeleur is divorced by her military husband in late Victorian London, she heads out to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to build a new life of romance and adventure with no strings attached (she's the "detached pirate" in the language of the period). But gossip is international, and as she experiences courtship and love in the small world of Halifax, she runs up against all the challenges of the "Traditional Woman" versus the "New Woman." Thrust into a series of irrevocable compromises, this intriguing heroine experiences both the low points and the high points of being a "New Woman" before romance rules the day. Lively, without self-pity, this is an entertaining read that keeps the reader engrossed right until the last page.
