In Search of Geraldine Moodie (Trade Books based in Scholorship(TBS))
Born in Toronto in 1854, Geraldine Moodie was the granddaughter of the well-known Upper Canadian writer, Susanna Strickland Moodie, and grandniece of Catherine Parr Traill. In 1878 she met and married a distant relative, John Douglas Moodie. They moved to western Canada in 1880 and following an unsuccessful attempt at farming, they returned east a few years later. There, in 1885, John received a Commission with the NWMP. Late that year the Moodies returned west and began a 32-year adventure that would take them to almost every major NWMP post in western Canada and the Hudson's Bay district of the eastern Arctic.
