Henry & self: the private life of Sarah Crease 1826-1922
Sarah Crease was an extraordinary Englishwoman whose long life and marriage encompassed both privilege and hardship, scandal and accolade, in the old world and the new colony of British Columbia. Kathryn Bridge's thoroughly researched biography includes extracts from Crease's letters and diaries, and an annotated edition of Crease's 1880 journal that records her travels with her husband Henry Crease, a circuit judge, from Victoria to New Westminster, the Cariboo, and Kamloops. Henry & Self is a valuable historical record of life in the emerging colony of British Columbia. An absorbing portrait, abundantly illustrated with archival photographs as well as Sarah Crease's own drawings and paintings.
