John Price-Brown (1844-1938) was an English born Canadian author. His family emigrated to Upper Canada when he was a child. He studied at the University of Toronto to become a medical doctor. He was well known in Toronto as a nose and throat specialist which led to the publication of his first book in 1900, Diseases of the Nose and Throat.
He began to write novels after this using a pen-name, Eric Bohn. In his later life, progressive blindness forced him to retire from medicine and also inhibited his writing. He still managed to write five historical novels, four of which are available on Faded Page.
In particular is his tale about the Upper Canada Rebellion (depicted in the image above) in 1837, entitled, The Mac’s of ’37. It achieved considerable popularity at the time of publication and is rated in present-day histories of Canadian literature as one of the best books of Canadian vintage dealing with a purely Canadian topic.
His final book, Laura, the Undaunted tells the story of Laura Secord. The book details her life culminating in her famous participation in the War of 1812.
