How the West Was Written
The Life and Times of James H. Gray
About this Item
Fifth House Publishers
James H. Gray was the first Canadian social historian to tackle such previously taboo subjects as the sex lives and boozing habits of the early settlers. His books were on the national and Toronto Star bestseller lists before those of Pierre Berton and have since become classics of Canadian literature. Gray's Red Lights on the Prairies stunned readers with its straight-forward approach to prostitution on the prairies and was named one of the one hundred most important Canadian books of all time by the Literary Review of Canada. Brian Brennan traces Gray’s life from his early years to his prolific late-period career as a social historian who produced an impressive, entertaining series of books about prairie life during the first half of the twentieth century.
