About the Author

Myra Rutherdale completed her PhD at York University and teaches Women's Studies and History at Simon Fraser University and at the University of British Columbia.


Myra Rutherdale provides a valuable and important analysis of the role of gender among Anglican missionaries who willingly went to the edge of civilization to bring faith and human services to the aboriginal peoples of the Canadian West. The text is carefully researched, well written, thoroughly documented and generously illustrated ... Rutherdale's effort will generate important discourse and keep women in the forefront of scholarly consideration of religion in the American and Canadian West. -- James T. Carroll * Western Historical Quarterly, Autumn 2003 * Rutherdale's study of Anglican women missionaries in British Columbia, Yukon, and the Northwest Territories is a valuable addition to the sparse literature on domestic missions, especially on women missionaries. The author has made excellent use of a wealth of archival sources and contemporary printed accounts and has a fine eye for lively and revealing quotation. -- Margaret Prang * Canadian Literature, Summer 2003 * This book is the first work to examine the role of Canadian women in northern missionary fields in a serious, scholarly way, and I highly recommend it. -- Susan Neylan * American Historical Review, October 2003 * Missiologists will find this study to be a helpful inquiry into the evolution of the role of women in mission. While Rutherdale exposes many of the serious difficulties encountered by women generations ago, she also shows how women were themselves complicity in patriarchy. -- Wayne A. Host * Missiology, April 2003 *
