"When Ethel Wilson published her first novel, Hetty Dorval, she was in her sixtieth year. With her subsequent books, among them the widely read Swamp Angel (1954), she established herself as one of Canada's most important writers. David Stouck's engaging biography of this elusive Canadian writer draws on archival material and interviews to describe, in detail, her early life as an orphan in England and Vancouver and her long writer's apprenticeship, spanning from the publication of some children's stories in 1919 to the appearance of Hetty Dorval in 1947. Stouck's narrative charts the resistance among publishers, critics, and readers to the curious mixture in her work of an Edwardian sensibility and a postmodern intellignce. He also documents her own resistance to both literary nationalism and creative writing classes as strategies for promoting literature. She was nevertheless one of the few Canadian women writers to emerge from the 1950s, and she is still being read, all her books remaining in print."--BOOK JACKET

As for Sinclair Ross by David Stouck ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sinclair Ross (1908-1996), best known for his canonical novel As for Me and My House (1941) and for such familiar short stories as 'The Lamp at Noon' and 'The Painted Door,' is an elusive figure in Canadian literature. A master at portraying the hardships and harsh beauty of the Prairies during the Great Depression, Ross nevertheless received only modest attention from the public during his lifetime. His reluctance to give readings or interviews further contributed to this faint public perception of the man." "In As for Sinclair Ross, David Stouck tells the story of a lonely childhood in Saskatchewan, of a long and unrewarding career in a bank, and of many failed attempts to be published and to find an audience. The book also tells the story of a man who fell in love with both men and women and who wrote from a position outside any single definition of gender and sexuality."--BOOK JACKET
"Collecting stamps would have been more fun" : Canadian publishing and the correspondence of Sinclair Ross, 1933-1986 by Sinclair Ross ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This unique exchange of letters between literary icon Sinclair Ross and several prominent writers, publishers, agents, and editors asks why many Canadian artists, especially those in western provinces, spent a lifetime struggling for recognition and remuneration. Featuring exchanges with Earle Birney, Margaret Laurence, and Margaret Atwood, among others, this collection exposes the conditions of cultural work in Canada for much of the twentieth century. This vivid, often moving, selection of professional and personal letters, plus the only formal interview Ross ever gave, provides a valuable resource for those engaged with the history of publishing in Canada, as well as for those with an interest in Canadian literature."--Pub. desc

The Canadian Wardells are descended through Thomas and Elizabeth and their oldest son Eliakim."--P. 6-7.

Some of their descendants including John and Joseph Wardell became Loyalists during the Revolutionary War period.
