Description:
From the front d.j. flap: "In this Bantu folktale, retold in lively fashion by Celia Barker Lottridge, a professional storyteller, it is the animal who tries the hardest rather than the one endowed with the greatest talents who proves himself the hero. The arid African landscape, the tree and its luscious fruit, and the drama played out among animals large and small are brought to vivid life in striking illustrations by Ian Wallace."

A unique feature of the book is an alphabetic index of over 1300 names which gives 'at a glance' reference to manufacturer, name, nickname, type, first flight, Navy, Army or Air Force and engines.

Description:
"In 1937, Canada took a bold step forward with the creation of Trans Canada Airlines. From the beginning, C.D. Howe, Minister of Transport and architect of TCA, envisioned not just a commercially viable enterprise, but also a symbol of Canadian identity that would single-handedly "overcome vast geographical barriers, thwart the Americans, reassure the British and unite the country." National Treasure offers a thoroughly researched history of Canada's original airline, from its conception to its eventual metamorphosis into Air Canada in the sixties. In between are the stories of an airline that pioneered flight across a demanding country, in the process bringing its citizens closer to each other as well as to the reat of the world. Packed with photos and enlivened by interviews with past pilots, flight attendants and other employees, 'National Treasure' is an absorbing look at one airline's ascent from a seemingly imposseble vision to a major international carrier and a national treasure."

Description:
From the Preface:
"While the bulk of the Trust's activities will be devoted to annual grants to assist research or publication, it is important that the fruits of a lifetime's labour are preserved. In due course we hope that Geoffrey Osborn will complete the definitive work on mail sent to and from Bitish naval officers around the world in the Victorian era. His ability to identify both the sender and his location from the surviving envelope alone is legendary and the Trustees felt that this work should be preserved as it stands. The result is a Resewarch Paper which will be of interest to both naval and postal historians and, reflecting the personal nature of the study, Geoffrey's original hand-written descriptions have been retained. This publication will be launched on the occasion of the first Stuart Rossiter Memorial Lecture at the National Army Museum."

Description:
From the d.j. flap: "In this collection of articles, Norman Webster takes readers on a journey through his 50 years of newspapering--in Canada, China in the early 1970's, the UK of Maggie Thatcher, and around the world. It's old-style reporting from a journalist with a sharp eye for the absurd. As a renowned editor of 'The Globe and Mail' and 'The Montreal Gazette', Webster writes about some of the big issues in Canada, such as the Quebec 'neverendum', the sovereignty debate that consumed the province and the country for three decades. Unlike so many political players in the world today, he is thoughtful and measured in his analysis. His book is entertaining and inspiring for readers of politics, and for journalists looking for award-winning examples of international reporting and editorial columns."
INSCRIBED on the title page: "To Peter, the wise old man from his young cousin Norman"

Description:
From the d.j.: "The first Japanese immigrant to Canada was Manzo Nagano. In 1877 he stowed away on a British ship and landed in New Westminster, B.C. He eventually settled with his bride in Victoria, B.C. By the end of the 19th century, Japanese settlers were farmers in Mission and Haney B.C., shopkeepers in Vancouver, fisherman in Stevenston at the mouth of the Fraser River, loggers on Vancouver Island, and coal miners in Cumberland, B.C. Then came the internment and dispersal of WWII. Today, citizens of Japanese origin are making significant contributions to Canadian life. Toyo Takata has interviewed hundreds of these early settlers and their descendents and presents an exciting collection of photographs, many from family albums."

Description:
"This book is the synthesis of several trips to NUNAVIK, the land of the Inuit. Its literary form is original for it combines the astute observations of an ethnologist with the supple language of a poet-novelist. Michel Noel happens to be both. Obviously his writing suffers from none of the obscurantism of scientific writing; on the contrary, he writes in a simple and precise language, frankly addressing those readers who love a good novel, perhaps too, those who have a taste for good travel writing and, especially, those who love art and poetry." "The works shown in this book reflect the importance of the relationship between the materials used--often drawn from local resources such as steatite, caribou antler, ivory, whalebone, animal skins--and the collective memory upon which the creations are based." Several dozen items are pictured, both in colour and b/w.
