1803, Dec 61885, Apr 8
an English-born Canadian author who wrote about her experiences as a settler in Canada, which was a British colony at the time. She wrote her first children's book in 1822, and published other children's stories in London, including books about Spartacus and Jugurtha. In London she was also involved in the Anti-Slavery Society, transcribing the narrative of the former Caribbean slave Mary Prince. In 1832, with her husband and daughter, Moodie emigrated to Upper Canada. Moodie continued to write in Canada and her letters and journals contain valuable information about life in the colony.
