Summary
"In her study of women's travel writing in Canda, Wendy Roy questions the notion of travel narratives as uncomplicated, objective accounts. She examines the accounts of Anna Jameson in Upper Canada (1838), Mina Benson Hubbard in Labrador (1908), and Margaret Laurence in Somalia (1963). Given their disparate geographical and historical contexts, Jameson, Hubbard, and Laurence drew very different maps of the political, cultural, and physical features of the areas they visited and of their own social and cultural positions. Maps of Difference reveals, however, that all three woman shared an anti-racist philosophy and an acute awareness of women's position in their own societies and in the societies to which they travelled."--Jacket
