The Woods in Winter is the fourth of four nature essays by L.M. Montgomery outlining the four seasons in the woods, published in The Canadian Magazine of Toronto throughout 1911; it was preceded by “Spring in the Woods,” “The Woods in Summer,” and “The Woods in Autumn.” Montgomery would later draw on excerpts from these four essays for descriptive passages that she inserted into nearly all her novels written in Ontario. The four essays appear as “[Seasons in the Woods]” in The L.M. Montgomery Reader, Volume 1: A Life in Print (2013).
