Jaques, Edna. “Burma Road.” Lethbridge Herald (13 February 1942).
I found this while looking (rather unsuccessfully, I might add) for anything about Asia or the War in Canadian newspapers by Dora Sanders in the early 1940s.
At first I thought to myself: “Surely Burma is jungle, and humid, not a dry, dusty desert?” but then I consulted my oracle, Madame Google, who tells me that there is extensive desert in Burma, but that are not (as I also suspected) any hyenas.
Still, readers would not miss the intent, I am sure.
