Editorial Commentary

'Martha Ostenso, who wrote “The Years are Shadows," is known round the world for her fiction, since she first stirred interest with her novel of the Canadian West, “Wild Geese."'
(Byrne Hope Sanders.  Editorial.  Chatelaine May 1938: 2)

'We've crammed this issue with ideas which will be of active help to you in your better enjoyment of the summer hours.  Martha Ostenso's story, “No Time for Sentiment," is worth reading for the added understanding it may bring on the young people you see around you.'
(Byrne Hope Sanders.  Editorial.  Chatelaine July 1941: 1)
