Single sheet pamphlet, District of Saskatchewan/Canada. Dept. of the Interior, 1902-1903.
Canada's message about the virtues of the Prairie West was also
carried to potential homesteaders in Europe and the United States through attractive
pamphlets. By 1900, pamphlet circulation had reached a phenomenal one million
items, some of which were printed in as many as 12 languages. The pamphlets promised
productive soil, adequate rainfall, a good growing season, bountiful crops and
a healthy climate.
