Ste-Lucie-des-Laurentides, Quebec L'aRPENT PERDU 1984 0969138717 / 9780969138716 First Edition Good 
353 pp, 10 3/4" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "(A) profusely illustrated slice of history giving a first-hand account of Lucy Griffith Pare's 96 years. Beginning in Australia, the story follows the fortunes of the author and her family from the relative comfort of Melbourne to the harsh conditions of the Western Australian Goldfields. As a child of seven in 1895 the author travels by camel train along with her sisters and mother to join her father in the thick of the goldrush. The story traces the growth of a desert camp of tents to the twin cities of Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. Then, just before the First (World) War, the author meets and marries Alphonse Pare, a French Canadian mining engineer, and moves into a new life in Canada. The story continues in Montreal and recounts the growth of their family through the turbulent years of the two wars and the Depression. In the First (World) War Alphonse serves in the cavalry and Lucy awaits him in the British Isles; in the Second (World) War, they are represented by four sons and three sons-in-law in uniform. After the Second (World) War, the author finds herself in the centre of a burgeoning Canadian family that spans four generations and includes nine children, forty-six grandchildren and an ever-increasing number of great-grandchildren."

CONNIE WOODLAND., Phillpotts, Eden.
3 Phillpotts, Eden. CONNIE WOODLAND.
London Hutchinson 1956 First Edition Very Good Very Good 
240 pp, small 8vo (7 1/2" H). "In one love Connie is unshakeable: that which she feels for the wild countryside of Dartmoor. But when it comes to the young men in her life she is less decided. There is much to be said for either - for the attractive young master carpenter, Robert Fontaine, of romantic French extraction, and for George Redvers, the honest young labourer, as simple-minded as herself. And if Robert shows less than respect for the country which is so dear to Connie, it is true also that George likes to shoot the wild creatures she loves. But it is more momentous matters than these which force Connie to make her choice, and in doing so, to act against her true heart. In this story of West Country life the problems of various characters are at least resolved when, with the coming of the 1914 war, each in his own fashion finds that he can serve his fellows. In its wisdom, its wit, and its warmheartedness it is typical of its author. Eden Phillpotts is a veteran storyteller still without rivals in the telling of a country tale." Very small light stain on page 133, 4 small lines of notation blacked out and small Chistmas gift inscription on front pastedown, front free endpaper has two soft creases and area of light browning, tiny bump at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has been price clipped, has minor edge wear/wrinkling, a few small light soiling marks on spine.
