La première édition de Jean Rivard, le Défricheur, a été publiée dans Les Soirées Canadiennes, en 1862. Le but de l’auteur était de faire connaître la vie et les travaux des défricheurs, et d’encourager notre jeunesse canadienne à se porter vers la carrière agricole, au lieu d’encombrer les professions d’avocat, de notaire, de médecin et les comptoirs des marchands, comme elle fait de plus en plus, au grand détriment de l’intérêt public et national.

"Jean Rivard: A Pioneer" has been described as the foremost French-Canadian novel of the 19th century. It was praised not so much for its literary merit but for its influence on socio-economic policy in French Canada. Among other things it helped stem the flood of rural emigrees from Quebec to the United States by reorienting the antiquated system of subdividing properties amongst all male offspring.
