Epub Footsteps in the Snow The Red River Diary of Isobel Scott Û autowiringdiagram.co

Isobel thinks that she and her family will find their fortune in Canada But Isobel's mother dies before they even cross the ocean and other misfortunes seem to follow their every step Isobel's family and the other Selkirk Settlers find themselves caught in the fur trading rivalry between the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company They cannot even start to build once they finally reach their destination The harsh climate and escalating threats against the settlers make it impossible to start a new life Only through perseverance and help from the local Cree band are Isobel and her family able to put down roots in the Red River Valley

    So yes right at first I was certainly rather wishing that Carol Matas had made her Footsteps in the Snow The Red River Diary of Isobel Scott a bit balanced with assigning blame that her imagined journal text telling of the Scott family migrating in the early 19th century from Scotland to what is now the Canadian province of Manitoba were a bit less one sided regarding the plight of the Red River colonists and I was indeed a trifle frustrated with chief protagonist and fictional diarist Isobel Scott generally showing only the North West Company and the Métis as being villains and agitators bent on destroying the family’s settlement dreams even though the mother’s death due to blood poisoning before the Scotts even set sail from Scotland to what is now Canada had already kind tarnished said dream right from the beginning For really the early 19th century conflicts between the North West Company and the Hudson’s Bay Company were in my opinion historically not ever simply a case of one company acting correctly and with honour and the other company behaving with nastiness and dishonour since both really only seemed to care about the fur trade about exploiting for financial gain and that both companies callously used both the Métis and the Red River settlers as pawns and played them against each other not caring about the consequences the hardships the animosities caused and created However the I was reading Footsteps in the Snow The Red River Diary of Isobel Scott the I began to appreciate that Isobel’s rather one sided at first take on events actually does make a lot of narrational sense since as a twelve year old Isobel’s voice is actually entirely appropriate in feel as why should a twelve year old be mature enough to realise that the settlers are being used as pawns etc and that the Métis are also in many ways just trying to protect their land and way of life when what Isobel and her fellow settlers are experiencing are mostly hardships and being repeatedly told that they are not welcome that they are seen as threats to be eliminated And yes while Isobel’s attitudes of negativity towards the Métis are uncomfortable to and for older adult I as a twelve year old experiencing the constant tug of war and being continually forced to keep moving on instead of being allowed to settle down to receive the land that had been promised Isobel Scott’s journals feel very much authentic and full of naturalism and realism including how Isobel must surmount her taught to her prejudices towards the so called savages towards the settlers’ First Nations allies and yes that Isobel’s annoyance at her father marrying White Loon actually has nothing at all to do with White Loon being Cree but that Isobel just does not relish White Loon taking her deceased mother’s place An engaging piece of historical fiction with me especially enjoying how Isobel matures and becomes less and less prejudiced and prone to stereotyping as her journal progresses I do find and recommend Footsteps in the Snow The Red River Diary of Isobel Scott as a worthy instalment in the Dear Canada series although I do wonder why Carol Matas did not have Isobel write in her diary about why so many Scottish ended up migrating to North America in the 19th century why the so called Highland Clearances were only mentioned in the supplemental information section as I do think that this should also have been featured in Isobel Scott’s journal
