Susan Allison Book By Local Author

After much hard work, Diane Sterne has recently completed a book on the works of Susan Allison. She has donated the copyright to the Princeton Museum so that they will benefit from the proceeds.

Cover for In Her WordsIn Her Words is a collection of selected works of Susan Louisa Allison (née Moir), Mother of the Similkameen. Her poetry and stories (some of which were written under the pen name of Stratton Moir) recount Indian legends told to her in the 1800’s when she ventured into the British Columbia interior with her new husband, John Fall Allison. Many of Susan Allison’s works have disappeared over time. With the assistance of members of her family and the Princeton Museum, this collection of lost writings has been carefully preserved. Included are: “In-Cow-Mas-Ket” and “Quin-Is-Coe”. This book has been prepared in celebration of Princeton, B.C.’s 150th birthday and the proceeds will benefit the Princeton and District Museum and Archives.
