Commentary: In his illustrations for Gilbert Parker’s The Lane That Had No Turning, Schoonover deals with the themes of love, treachery and betrayal as French Canada adjusted to British rule. Schoonover’s work reflects Howard Pyle’s influence in its precise rendering and faithfulness to authentic detail. To gather background information for the fifty-five illustrative works that he created for the book, Schoonover made trips to Canada by train on September 14-20, 1901, and July 2-6, 1902.
