Joyce Higgs

Joyce Higgs has made a study of Catharine Parr Trail and of the Canadian wildflowers she revered. This October she'll bring this amazing woman to life.

Emigrating to Canada in the 1830s Catharine Parr Trail described her new life in letters and journals and collected these into The Backwoods of Canada (1836), which continues to be read as an important source of information about early Canada.


As an author and naturalist she described everyday life in the community, the relationship between Canadians, Americans, and natives, the climate, and local flora and fauna.
