Susannah of the Mounties is a novel written by Muriel Denison in 1936. In the book Susannah is sent to Regina, Saskatchewan to spend the summer with her uncle who is a Mountie. There were several sequels to the book, including Susannah at Boarding School, Susannah of the Yukon and Susannah Rides Again.

Film adaptation[edit]

In 1939 it was made into a movie starring Shirley Temple as Susannah. The movie was directed by William A. Seiter and produced by Darryl F. Zanuck. The plot differs significantly from the book in that it is set twenty years earlier at a much smaller NWMP fort, Susannah is the sole survivor of an Indian attack of a group of traveling wagons (her parents are dead rather than in India), and there's no uncle. The film is an American version of the West compared to the Canadian West of the book.
