Birthright  by Constance Lindsay Skinner, Adapted by Joan Bryans

Set in North Western B. C. frontier in 1905, white missionary Robert Maclean has an ever-increasing foothold of power and influence. Into the swirling melee of shifting power steps Precious Conroy, Maclean's adopted daughter. Determined to walk her own revolutionary path for freedom, her actions trigger in others all the prejudices and hypocrisies of the day. Skinner pulls no punches, and her indictment of these prejudices, both native and white, religious and secular, while often couched in humour, touches as many raw nerves as ever.
