"Nothing captures the spirit of the Old West better than the jaunty tunes and classic ballads the cowboys and settlers sang, songs richly represented in this visually stunning volume. Panoramic in scope, the 45 songs, coupled with works of art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming, chronicle the stirring saga of westward expansion and reflect every facet of life during one of the most exciting periods in our nation's history. The lore of the West intrigued many artists, and the works featured include paintings and sculpture by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, and N.C. Wyeth, as well as a myriad of fascinating artifacts: saddles, spurs, guns, guitars, a stagecoach ticket, a Navajo blanket, and other objects that provide a vivid picture of life in the West. A lively and intriguing text further illuminates this bygone world, exploring the history of the songs, their lyrics, the accompanying art, and the development of the West. The music, arranged for beginning to intermediate musicians and accompanied by chords for the guitar or banjo, is suitable for piano, organ, violin, or recorder."

364 pp. 6 3/4" H "There's a reason why Garrett's still in the P.I. business after all these years - he's not one to learn his lessons. Maybe that's why he lets himself get roped into being a bodyguard for Kip Prose, an obnoxious kid being threatened by creatures that can't quite be descibed. According to the kid, the attackers aren't after him at all - they're just trying to get to his friends Lastyr and Noodiss. But before Garrett can get Kip to explain just who or what Lastyr and Noodiss are, Kip is abducted, and the chase begins - " Interior - a bookstore's small stamp and number in ink on first page,otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.

New York ROC 1994 0451453050 / 9780451453051 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 
347 pp, 6 7/8" H. "When 'Royalty' paid the tab, price wasn't the issue, survival was. And Garrett wasn't sure it was worth his life to take Maggie Jean on as his client. Not in a kingdom where the biggest con artists weren't human, magic could beat any weapon, and the local killers were built like tanks. Still, damsels in distress were Garrett's weakness, especially when they had all the right equipment in all the right places. And it seemed like a simple missing person's case: a vanished teenage daughter, a distraught mother trying to track her down. But when the mother used to be the mistress of the now defunct king, and when a guy they called the Rainmaker (a character so well connected even Garrett's friends didn't want to rat on him) was far too interested in Maggie and ready to see Garrett permanently removed from the case, he knew he'd have to call in some big favors just to keep his head on his shoulders, let alone to find a kid who probably didn't want to be found."

10 Little, Jean. Signed. KATE.
Harper & Row, New York, (1971), Ist edition. 
162 pp, 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. SIGNED BY AUTHOR ON TITLE PAGE. "Emily's character sketch of her best friend Kate covered just about everything. It said Kate liked to act tough, but with small children she was gentle. It said she loved words and hated parsnips. It said they would still be friends when they were old ladies in wheelchairs. But it didn't say that Kate was Jewish because, as Emily explained later, being Jewish was not exactly part of Kate's character. That was a year ago, and now a great deal had happened to change Emily's feelings toward Kate - and to change Kate's image of herself. Looking back, Kate tries to make sense of it all. It all started on the day she met that little kid who called herself Susannah...For Kate, it has been a year of insight and discovery, of learning as much about others as she does about herself. Kate still doesn't have all the answers. But she has made an important beginning." Light edge wear to boards, tiny bump to top corners, top/bottom of spine lightly bumped, tiny faint foxing marks on edges of textblock. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has moderate edge wear/rubbing, tiny chips and tears, light fading to spine color, browning at top edge of rear flap, one corner crease. VG-/Good

OF LUCK AND WAR: FROM SQUEEGEE KID TO BOMBER PILOT IN WORLD WAR II., Morrison, Les.  Cover art by Jim Watson.
12 Morrison, Les. Cover art by Jim Watson. OF LUCK AND WAR: FROM SQUEEGEE KID TO BOMBER PILOT IN WORLD WAR II.
General Store Publishing House, Burnstown, Ontario, 1999, first edition. 
151 pp, 8 15/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 1894263162 B&w photographs. "In the late 1930s, Les Morrison graduated from cleaning car windows for nickels and dimes, that era's version of today's 'squeegee kid', to a new career as a 'boy with a bicycle', making deliveries all over Toronto. He considered himself fortunate to move up from six to nine dollars a week, at a time when jobs were scarce and school was for the rich. But fate had other things in store for him. By 1942, the war against Hitl er had become a way of life for everyone, and eighteen-year-old Les, like most of his age, answered the call to enlist. But not in the army. He had no wish to end up like veterans of the Great War - gassed, skewered by bayonets, or peppered wit h s hrapnel. He would join the RCAF - the elite of the armed forces, he believed - and soar above it all. The risk of crash and burn never entered his head. Flying Officer Morrison defied the odds. Flying Lancaster bombers with 424 (Tiger) Squa dr o n, then based in England, he successfully flew many missions over Germany, cheating death repeatedly to his ongoing amazement. (This book) takes the reader along in the cockpit of a WWII bomber, with humour and grace, to share the experiences of o ne ordinary young man who, like thousands of others, felt lucky to come back alive." Interior - place, date and signature in ink on title page; previous owner's small bookplate with name in ink on dedication page; otherwise clean and tight w ith no oth er ownership marks. Exterior - minor rubbing. Very Good

291 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). "The 369th Infantry Regiment was the first African American regiment mustered to fight in World War I. In a war where the vast majority of black soldiers served in the Service of Supply, unloading ships and building roads and railroads, the men of the 369th trained and fought side by side with the French at the front (America's segregation policy prohibited them from serving together with white American soldiers) and ultimately spent more days in the trenches than any other American unit. They went to war in defense of a country afflicted by segregation, Jim Crow laws, lynchings, and racial violence, but a country they believed in all the same. Despite extraordinary odds, the 369th became one of the most successful - and feared - regiments of the war. The Harlem Hellfighters, as their enemies named them, showed extraordinary valor on the battlefield, with many soldiers winning the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honor, and were the first Allied unit to reach the Rhine River. A riveting depiction of both social triumph and battlefield heroism." Tiny bump at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing.

208 pp, 11 1/4" H. Profusely illustrated with b&w and colour photographs, reproductions. "(T)akes a fascinating look at the personalities and events that have made the Gardens Canada's most famous building. It is the interesting story of the building of the Gardens and of the hockey greats who have played there. It is also, in many ways, the story of popular entertainment in Canada from 1931 to 1981. Over 100 million people have been entertained by ballet, opera, circuses, skating extravaganzas and concerts of all sorts, in addition to almost every kind of sporting event from boxing and wrestling to bicycle racing. The arena has also been the site of political and religious rallies, benefits in support of the war effort, community events such as Brownie and Boy Scout pageants, and service club fund-raisers. This nostalgic book will remind sports fans of the Leafs' high-scoring Kid Line, of George Chuvalo going the distance with Muhammad Ali or of Vitas Gerulaitas defeating Bjorn Borg. Rock fans will remember attending an Elvis Presley concert, or waiting hours in line for Beatles' tickets. (It) also contains a detailed chronology of the milestones in the history of the Gardens for the trivia buff." Minor edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine.

Among his many accomplishments, Tyrrell discovered Canada's first dinosaur, Albertosaurus, and an Ice Age glacier he named Keewatin. He risked his own and his companions' lives charting the Dubawnt and Kazan river networks west of Hudson Bay, and rescued the maps and records of Canada's great geographer, David Thompson, from oblivion. After he failed to find gold in the Klondike, Tyrrell gambled on buying a gold mine in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, and won millions." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.
