Description

This is a 1975 book that is entitled “Marguerite de la Roque: A Story of Survival”, about a young woman’s bravery and struggle to survive. It tells the harrowing true story of a 16th Century French noblewoman named Marguerite de la Roque, who was deliberately marooned on a deserted island in Canada’s St. Lawrence River. The Island was known as the Isle of Demons, because of legends that it was populated by demons and wild beasts. For several years, Marguerite suffered and endured the harsh Canadian seasons on this island. Her predicament was caused by a relative, who was purportedly punishing her for having a romantic affair, but who may have also been plotting to gain access to her lands and other property. This book is signed by the author, who is Ohio Women’s Hall of Famer Elizabeth Boyer. It is inscribed (by Boyer to David Brown), with an indication that its movie rights had been optioned to a film company. Although this book was never made into a film, Marguerite’s story was a subject of episodes of the television shows Creepy Canada and Heritage Theatre.

Elizabeth M. Boyer (1913-2002) was a lawyer, feminist, writer, and historian. In 1937, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Bowling Green State University. In 1947, she received a law degree from Cleveland–Marshall College of Law. In 1950, she earned a Masters of Law degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Law. She was a professor of Business Law at Cuyahoga Community College. In 1968, she founded the Women's Equity Action League (WEAL), a moderate feminist movement for professional women. Among other issues, WEAL worked to abolish university quotas and discrimination against women. Boyer also headed her own publishing firm, called Veritie Press, and was the author of three books. In 1978, she was inducted into the Ohio Women’s Hall of Fame, which was established in 1978 and currently has over 350 members. It gives public recognition to contributions that Ohio women have made to the growth of the state of Ohio, the nation, and the world.

This book is 6 1/4 inches (wide) by 9 1/4 inches (high).

This item is in good vintage condition. The binding is intact and there are no tears or stains on any of the book’s 348 pages. It has a clean hardback cover, which has very minor bends on its corners. It also has a dust cover that is in decent condition, with a few tears.
