The Man From Glengarry


Ranald Macdonald is man a living in rural eastern Ontario soon after the Canadian confederation. Faced with the challenges of rural life in Canada and following the example of the minister’s wife who serves as his role model, Ranald’s choices shape both the man he will become and the country that he loves.

The Man from Glengarry was one of author Ralph Connor’s most popular works and inspired him to publish The Girl from Glengarry and Glengarry School Days, which were set in the same county. With its strong moral and spiritual message, The Man from Glengarry reflected the life and beliefs of Connor, a Presbyterian minister who was born and raised in Glengarry County.

About the author

Ralph Connor was the pseudonym of best-selling Canadian writer Charles William Gordon. Born in a small town in Ontario, Gordon’s interest in writing was ignited as a student first at the University of Toronto and then at Knox College, where he completed his divinity studies. Gordon went on to become a reverend in both the Presbyterian and United churches, and used the pen name Ralph Connor to keep his literary activities separate from his religious vocation. Over the course of his career, Connor published more than forty works, including the wildly popular The Sky Pilot, which sold more than one million copies, Glengarry School Days, The Man from Glengarry, and Postscript to Adventure, a posthumous autobiography published after Gordon’s death in 1937.
