The Female Emigrant''s Guide, and Hints on Canadian Housekeeping by Catherine Parr Strickland Traill is a window into the Canadian way of life. While the book might be aimed at female emigrants specifically, the contents of this exhaustive work are useful for everyone wishing to learn the nuances of Canadian culture and lifestyle with detailed observations on maintaining and running a household. Traill explains common household chores with great élan making this book an enjoyable read.

As someone who learnt the ropes on her own, Traill shares her experiences and puts together a ready reference for anyone wishing to relocate to Canada. With a tone of instruction and advice, she covers various aspects in The Female Emigrant''s Guide, and Hints on Canadian Housekeeping ranging from recipes specific to Canada, the ingredients and materials required for cooking and other housekeeping tasks as well as dedicated sections on issues like value of land, stores and miscellaneous matters.

Traill writes a note to fathers and husbands and another for wives and daughters who are in the process of emigrating with specific advice to both sets, the crux of which revolves around the fact that there is no place in the country for those who do not wish to, or are not in a position to work hard with honesty and integrity. The sections on cooking and specific recipes are perhaps the mainstay of this work as Traill provides valuable insight into the peculiarities of the Canadian kitchen. Not only does The Female Emigrant''s Guide, and Hints on Canadian Housekeeping provide specific instructions for women, it is an excellent resource for the general reader to understand Canada better.
