128 pp, oblong large 8vo (9 1/2" H x 10 3/4" D). Decorated endpapers, profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photographs, reproductions. "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."

HORSES I'VE KNOWN., James, Will.
5 James, Will. HORSES I'VE KNOWN.
World, Cleveland, 1946, 3rd printing. 
281 pp, 8vo (8 5/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Color frontispiece, b&w illustrations by author. "Will James knows the horse of the Western plains and ranges better than any other American writer. Not only does (he) stand in a class by himsel f for his writing about the horse, but his vivid drawings of cowboys, horses and ranch life generally are unsurpassed. In this book, Will James tells the stories of a number of horses, good and bad, that he has known. Writing in the same c o w b o y v e rnacular that made 'Smoky', 'Lone Cowboy' and other James books so successful, and illustrating his text with better drawings than he has done for a long time, (he) here records spectacular incidents in the lives of 'Little Eage', t he h or se w ho ac te d as 'seeing eye' for a blind rancher and saved his life in the flood that followed one of the sudden range storms; of 'Bearcat', the bucking horse that nobody could ride and whose final conquest lost a job for the cowboy wh o m ast ere d h im; of hil ari ous cowboy high-jinks with borrowed horses and a couple of ghostly white equines who turned a practical joke into a stampede that had unfortunate results for the jokers; and many other stories, all of them brimmin g w ith acti on a nd r ich with the colo r of the Western range that Will James portrays so well. As a reminiscent 'round-up' of horses that the author and illustrator has ridden and owned this book is the equal of anything Will James has written.

One day, the journey will end at the village cemetery, just one kilometre from the inn. The traveller is the author. The trip is not long, but is rich in rural and natural experiences along the way.

(He) shares with his readers the evolution of his philosophy through his personal experiences with the people and the wilderness flora and fauna he has encountered on his life's journey."

GALLIPOLI., Moorehead, Alan.  Additional text by Ann Moyal.  Edited by Sarah Overton.
8 Moorehead, Alan. Additional text by Ann Moyal. Edited by Sarah Overton. GALLIPOLI.
Macmillan of Canada, Toronto, 1989, extended edition. 
318 pp, small 4to (10 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0771592396 Profusely illustrated in colour and b&w. "Alan Moorehead's 'Gallipoli' is surely one of the most moving and absorbing books ever written. It is not simply a war book, an a ccount of a military campaign - the narrative takes on the quality of a literary masterpiece, the suspense of a thriller, and the purgative powers of Shakespearean tragedy. From the first major assault on the Narrows in March 1915, until the f i n a l evacuation of troops in January 1916, the campaign was one long saga of appalling blunders, missed opportunities, exhaustion and frustration. So often, for just a few moments, in a vacuum of indecision, all depended upon the inspiration of a s in gl e act of faith, and such acts were usually not forthcoming. And yet, hemmed into those few terrible areas of beach and hillside and permanently under shellfire, the most formidable acts of courage and imagination occured, not leas t am ong th e A nza cs . Alan Moorehead presents Gallipoli justly and compassionately. He describes the life each individual carved out for himself during those nine long months. He gives the overview and the personal view. At times he makes i t almo st p alat able . A nn Moyal has enhanced Moorehead's text by presenting much new and important information, together with relevant biographical detail, in boxes throughout the text. These, along with maps and poignant photographs, drawings an d pai nting s, br ing t he ch ara cters, the setting and the spirit of Gallipoli to life."

"(P)resents a memorable portrait of a land and its people, capturing the essence of the Arctic and of Eskimo lore. The reader meets Koonar, the first intruder from the world of the whites, who bore a strange and powerful gift to the Innuit (the People). And Angutna, who was Brother to Kipmik, the white fox - and who paid a terible price for that. Arnuk, the lost Husky, and the lone wolf. Kala, who survived by means of an act of desperation. Nakusiak, who was washed ashore on a Scottish island. These figures and many others swell to life-like proportions through the accomplished prose of Farley Mowat. Poignant in its depiction of a way of life that is no more, (it) is sure to be counted among (his) finest contributions to Canadian literature."

VISA TO RUSSIA., Newman, Bernard.
10 Newman, Bernard. VISA TO RUSSIA.
Herbert Jenkins, London, 1959, first edition. 
244 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs, maps. At the time of the author's tour, visits to Russia were carefully orchestrated affairs, watched over by government officials. "But what if you go as a private individual? Bernard Newman determined to find the answer to this question during the summer of (1958), and his account of his lone pilgrimage makes a fascinating book of the first importance. By simple devices at the disposal of any tourist he went m o r e o r l ess where he pleased, had dozens of conversations with ordinary people and enjoyed the hospitality of many a Russian home. Once the barrier of suspicion was penetrated, he found the Russians as friendly as the people of most other g re at n at i on s. H is meetings with them were disarmingly informal and quite the contrary to common experience. Then he was arrested, and he saw at first hand the police state at work. He saw something of the power of the Communist party lead er, of th eir d isr ega r d f or truth, of individual freedom, of human rights. It was a grim experience, and was in marked and sombre contrast to his earlier friendly encounters with the Man-in-the-Street. (This) is a balanced and trustworthy pict ure of a nat ion liv ing un der Communism, an existence which has been variously described by other writers as heaven, or as hell. In his description of it Bernard Newman has not fallen into the pitfalls of extremes. Instead, he has set asi de pr ejud ice a nd in an objec tive an d no n-political account tells us precisely what he saw and did."

325 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w drawings. "(Z)oologist Bill Schutt takes readers on an entertaining voyage into the world of some of nature's strangest creatures - the sanguivores. Using a sharp eye and mordant wit, (he) makes a remarkably persuasive case that vampire bats, leeches, ticks, bed bugs, and other vampires are as deserving of our curiosity as warmer and fuzzier species are - and that many of them are even worthy of conservation. He takes us from rural Trinidad to the jungles of Brazil to learn about some of the most reviled, misunderstood, and marvelously evolved animals on our planet: vampire bats. Schutt also tracks the history of medicinal leech use. Once employed by the tens of millions to drain perceived excesses of blood, today the market for these ancient creatures is booming once again - but for very different reasons. Among the other blood feeders we meet are bed bugs, or 'ninja insects' (and he) also details our dangerous and sometimes deadly encounters with ticks, chiggers, and mites (the latter implicated in Colony Collapse Disorder - currently devastating honey bees worldwide). Then there are the truly wierd - vampire finches. And if you thought piranha were scary, some people believe that the candiru (or willy fish) is the best reason to avoid swimming in the Amazon. Enlightening, alarming, and appealing to our delight in the bizarre, 'Dark Banquet' peers into a part of the natural world to which we are, through our blood, inextricably linked." Very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny dent on bottom edge of rear board. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling.

555 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "(Traces Hank Snow's) life from humble beginnings, through his emergence as an entertainer in Canada, the United States, and throughout the world, to his stature as one of the most influential figures in country music today. But more than a rags-to-riches memoir, this book presents Hank's life and career in his own voice, with remarkable candor and incredible detail. It provides the first extensive look at the early development of country music in Canada, reveals the inner workings of the music industry (including Hank's vital and unsung role in launching Elvis Presley's career), frankly discusses the nonglamorous side of stardom, and offers the reflections of an outspoken artist who has been professionally involved with country music for nearly sixty years. Through Ernest Tubb's intercession, he made his debut on Nashville's Grand Ole Opry. Disheartened by the lack of audience response, Hank nearly abandoned his dream. Then he recorded a song he had written, 'I'm Movin' On'. It climbed to the top of the charts, staying at number one for twenty-nine weeks. More hits followed, and his life and career changed forever. Over the years, Hank has entertained servicepeople on military bases in Korea, Europe, and Vietnam. Remembering his own (difficult) childhood, he established the Hank Snow Foundation for the Prevention of Child Abuse. (He was) elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame and to the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame." Minor twist to spine. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling otherwise clean and bright.

But the primitive Mutes possess ancient powers greater than any machine - ." Book 2. First Family - 1987 reprint, ISBN 0722185170 - "After countless years of fighting - of pitting sophisticated technology against the primitive surface-dwelling people who seemed to posses supernatural powers - the Federation was still no nearer to ending the battle with the Mutes.

A man whose destiny would determine the future of both the Federation and the Mutes." Book 3. Iron Master - 1987 first printing, ISBN 0722185189 - "The year: 2990. The centuries-old conflict between the hi-tech underground world of the Trackers and the primitive, surface-dwelling Mutes continues with unabated ferocity. Steve Brickman, a Tracker wingman whose heart and mind is torn between the two cultures, embarks upon his most dangerous mission yet: the rescue of Cadillac and Clearwater, two gifted Plainfolk Mutes held captive by the mysterious Iron Masters.

Death-Bringer - 1989 first printing, ISBN 0747400016 - "With Clearwater now safely in their hands, the Federation hatches a plan to capture Cadillac and Mr Snow and annihilate the Clan McCall: a plan which forces Steve to continue his double role as loyal agent of the Federation and blood-brother of the Mutes. The First Family is hell-bent on exacting retribution for past defeats but the twice-bloodied House of Yama-Shita is also thirsting for vengeance. Both parties blindly pursue their own ends unaware that the outcome is governed not by force of arms but by the irrevocable power of prophecy."
