About this Item

With frontispiece plus 8 pages publisher's advertisements. Green decorated cloth; an excellent, crisp copy, with an inscription on fly-leaf, "Dr. and Mrs. Purvis A. Spain.". First edition. The story of two brothers fighting for the love of the same woman, a struggle which nearly ruins their friendship. One brother leaves to become a doctor, while the other becomes a minister, and both end up in the Rockies. Valuable for its accurate description of rural and frontier medicine in the late nineteenth century. Connor (1860-1937), a pseudonym for Charles Gordon William, was a Canadian cleric and author. He graduated from the University of Toronto, and was ordained to the Presbyterian ministry in 1890, later becoming senior Protestant chaplain to the Canadian forces during World War I. As Ralph Connor, he was a prolific and popular novelist of the day, indeed one of the world's best-selling pre-war writers. Many of his novels drew on his missionary experience in the Western Canadian frontier, with the confrontation of good and evil being central to the plot. Bookseller Inventory # 12087
