Bertha Rand, Winnipeg's Cat Lady, was a familiar figure in the news; many knew her as the mad woman who lived in squalour with over fifty felines. In her tiny house on Queen Street, Bertha took in sick and abandoned cats, battling her neighbours and city hall to save them, taking her cause to the media. In The Queen of Queen Street, Maureen Hunter delves into Bertha Rand's tragic life of poverty and deprivation to bring us a richly layered drama of one woman's will to survive, and a universal story of hope and strength.Subject(s): Rand, Bertha, 1895-1981 | Manitoba--Winnipeg | Older women | Poor women | Women cat ownersOriginal Publisher: Winnipeg, Signature EditionsLanguage(s): English
