"Sir Gilbert Parker--the popular Canadian novelist, short-story writer and poet who rose from backwoods obscurity to the seats of the mighty in the British Empire--was born on November 23, 1862, in Camden East, Addington, Ontario, to Royal Army Capt. J. Parker and his wife. After attending school in Ottawa and matriculating at Toronto's Trinity University, Parker moved to Australia in 1886, serving as an associate editor on the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper. His travels took him throughout the Pacific. Subsequently, after his return to Canada, he extensively journeyed through northern Canada. Parker was a contemporary of the poet and short story writer Sir Charles G. D. Roberts, the first writer to express the new nationalism that resulted from the confederation of Britain's North American provinces into Canada in 1867. Roberts' work inspired a nationalist school of Canadian poets in the late 19th century."
