Written as a continuation of her sensational 1852 text, Roughing it in the Bush, Susanna Moodie’s Life in the Backwoods continues the narrative of her experience as a settler in mid-nineteenth century Upper Canada. By relating her own experiences and those of the community of pioneers also living in the harsh environment of the Canadian backwoods, Moodie creates a faithful portrait of the harsh life faced by settlers to the British Colony.

Written primarily for British readers, Life in the Backwoods—together with Roughing it in the Bush—acted as a guide for newcomers to Canada on how to live and survive in the uncultivated wilds of Canada.
