First time this title was published in Canada with Susanna revising and updating with a very upbeat preface promoting Canada. One of the scarcest 19th century editions of this classic.

"This new (1871) edition was printed by Hunter Rose and published jointly by them, Dawson Brothers of Montreal, and Thomas MacClear of Toronto in late 1871. Susanna received '200 dollars for the publication of 2,500 copies and a Royalty of 4 cents on every copy they may require over that number" quoted from Roughing it in the bush, or, Life in Canada By Susanna Moodie, Carl Ballstadt 1988.
