The first edition of The Selected Journals of L.M. Montgomery was published in the 1980s, with fifty percent of the material removed to save space, as well as to reflect a quaint, marketable vision of small-town Canada. The editors were instructed to excise anything that was not upbeat or did not "move the story along." The resulting account of Montgomery's youthful life in Prince Edward Island depicts a fun-loving, simple country girl. The unabridged journal, however, reveals something quite different. ...

Una of the Garden

2010 was the 100th anniversary of the publication of L.M. Montgomery's third novel, Kilmeny of the Orchard.  In celebration, the L.M. Montgomery Institute released a facsimile edition of 
Una of the Garden, the story that evolved into the Kilmeny novel.
Una of the Garden was first published in serial format in The Housekeeper magazine in 1908-1909, but the scarcity of back issues of this magazine made Montgomery's story inaccessible, until now. The facsimile edition booklet, reproduced from the holdings of the Ryrie- Campbell Collection at LMMI, offers a fascinating opportunity to experience Montgomery's work within the context of the original magazine publication, including illustrations and advertisements. The booklet also provides insight about the transformation from the story to the novel. Una of the Garden is edited by Donna J. Campbell and Simon Lloyd, with an introduction by Kate Macdonald Butler. Proceeds from the sale of this publication benefit the work of the L.M. Montgomery Institute. Booklet Cost:  $20  Canadian or US funds

There are many ways to help protect the natural resources in LM Montgomery's home province and location of her stories: Prince Edward Island. One opportunity is with the Island Nature Trust  and the Trees in Trust Program at "Trees In Trust enables you to quickly and easily dedicate a piece of forest to give as a gift, as a memorial or to reduce your carbon footprint.  You don't own the trees, but they are held in your name forever by a not-for-profit charitable land trust which protects the woodland in perpetuity."

The books I read most as a child were by Lucy Maud Montgomery, who’s best known for her Anne of Green Gables stories, but I also liked Emily of New Moon. Emily was an only child, as I was. Emily lived on an island, as did I. Although Manhattan Island and Prince Edward Island are not very much alike, they are still islands. Emily’s father was dying of bad lungs, and so was mine. Emily had some dreadful relative, and so did I. She had a hard time in school, and she also understood that there’s more to life than just the things that can be explained by encyclopedias and facts. Facts alone are not adequate. I love Emily.
