Reminiscences of life on the Prairies
1910-1914, by Mrs. Thomas Lavington

In addition to linking the young country from coast to coast, providing transportation to the hundreds of thousands of immigrants heading west, and carrying wheat eastward and manufactured goods westward, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) was also one of Canada's largest employers. This British woman was employed by the CPR to assist in the training of other British women for farm settlement on the Prairies. Her story recounts with amusing and, at times, ethnocentric detail her experiences on the Prairies and in the Kootenay region of British Columbia between 1910 and 1914.
