Demers revives the memory of journalist Miriam Green Ellis, an all-but-forgotten feminist, suffragist, and agricultural reporter who documented the modernist sphere for over four decades and who refused to be confined to the "women’s pages." With written material from the University of Alberta’s Miriam Green Ellis Collection, accompanied by an excellent selection of photographs, Ellis’s inimitable voice and views on Albertans, westerners, and Canadians in the early decades of the twentieth century emerge clearly. Canadian women studies, journalism students, and feminists will find Ellis’s highly coloured perspective both entertaining and informational.
