A missionary nurse and teacher for the Methodist church, Margaret Butcher wrote extensively to her family and friends with the express purpose of sharing her knowledge of the Haisla people and her experiences among them. Lively and descriptive observations of the Haisla people, life on the coast, mission work and the role of women are all set against the backdrop of the settler community and the Kitamaat Valley, giving the reader a compelling glimpse into this period.

An editors introduction provides the historical context for the letters, while a concluding essay raises issues of cultural conflict in residential schooling, gender in missionary work, and the role of race and gender in Butchers worldview.
