A Search for America

Paperback

Book Description
Frederick Philip Grove’s semi-autobiographical A Search for America follows young Phil Branden as he wanders from Montreal to the American Midwest in his quest for “the real America.” Born into a privileged European family whose fortunes have collapsed, Branden must remake himself in North America, shedding his Old World attitudes as he is absorbed into the immigrant underclass. In each of his new occupations – waiter, salesman, hobo, labourer – Branden encounters greed, cruelty, and deceit, yet he also glimpses the promise of a new social order struggling to be born.

First published in 1927, A Search for America is a novel of wonderful range and vision, a fascinating portrait of North American society in the early years of the twentieth century.

Settlers of the Marsh

Book Description
Settlers of the Marsh was first published in 1925, after a struggle by the author to persuade publishers that his first novel would meet public acceptance. Some critics immediately condemned this hypnotic story of the loss of innocence on the Manitoba frontier, calling it “obscene” and “indecent.” Churches issued warnings to their congregations to avoid its scandalous contents. Only several decades later was Settlers of the Marsh recognized for what it is – a landmark in the development of the Canadian novel, and a work of realism in the tradition of Thomas Hardy.

A psychological portrait of life in the Canadian West, Settlers of the Marsh presents with chilling accuracy the hopes, passions, and anxieties of young pioneers.
