Elspeth Honeyman Clarke, in the 41st report of the Okanagan Historical Society in 1977, wrote 'Bread Alone' which describes her life in the 1930s with her husband when they homesteaded in the Okanagan while he worked on interior B.C. railways; the family was impoverished but they lived well on wild foods and local products. She is little-known in B.C. literature but William Deacon of Toronto included her for his Literary Map of Canada in 1937, citing a piece for The Cariboo Trail. She was one of twelve writers on the map for B.C.
