A Western Eden

A Western Eden is a sketch of Saskatchewan that L.M. Montgomery published as an adolescent while living with her father and her stepmother in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. It appeared in the Prince Albert Times and Saskatchewan Review on 17 June 1891 and was reprinted in the Manitoba Daily Free Press (Winnipeg) a few weeks later, with her name appearing erroneously as “Lucy Ward Montgomery.” It appears in A Name for Herself: Selected Writings, 1891–1917.
