See below for English description.

Isabelle Scott, une jeune fille de 12 ans, commence son journal en juillet 1815, pendant la traversée qui les mène, elle et sa famille, de l'écosse au Canada, dans l'espoir d'une vie meilleure. Une fois arrivés à destination, ils apprennent qu'ils doivent repartir, car il n'y a pas assez de vivres pour passer l'hiver.

Isobel thinks that she and her family will find their fortune in Canada. But Isobel's mother dies before they even cross the ocean, and other misfortunes follow their every step. Isobel's family and the other Selkirk Settlers are caught in the fur-trading rivalry between the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Company and cannot even start to build when they do reach their destination.
