164 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). Map endpapers. "What boy or girl wouldn't like the adventure of surveying in the Rockies when pack-mules, gold miners, and railway surveyors followed trails known only to the Indians? Bruce, the greenhorn from San Francisco, and Josette, the French girl from Edmonton, and her half-brother Mike had that exciting experience when they accompanied Edward Jarvis on his Canadian Pacific Railway surveys in 1874-1875. During the summer the two boys endured the hardships and adventures of an exploratory survey from Kamloops to Tete Jaune Cache, then an instrumental survey along the North Fraser River to Fort George. A rock slide, plunge into a treacherous river, forest fire, cougar attack, snow avalanche and losing the trail are some of the dramatic events in this book for both boys and girls. That was the life of the first Canadian Pacific surveyors, who pioneered the trail-finding so that the Atlantic could be linked to the Pacific with steel." Minor soiling at top of front hinge. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, several small closed tears with creases, a few tiny chips, light foxing at top of rear flap, a few tiny light foxing marks along top edge, light dye stain at top inside edge of rear panel, very light rubbing on rear panel.

Here are the stories of teenage winners o f the highest decorations for bravery - the Victoria Cross, the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Legion d'honneur, the Iron Cross.

Then all thoughts of f ig ht in g st o p as the sink-hole collapses, and the four children are catapulted into the labyrinth below. A rock fall seals off their escape. This is a story of great tension and excitement. It is also the powerful study of four children, vir tua lly un de r s en te nce of death, and their developing relationship with one another."

Inspired by Gretzky's example, Ryan makes the team - and watches his hero take on the reigning champs, the mighty New York Islanders! The latest in Mike Leonetti's acclaimed Hockey Heroes series, (this) is a heartwarming story about overcoming obstacles and believing in yourself."

152 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w drawings, music notation. "The material in this book has been culled from many sources and I have brought together a comprehensive range of children's games played throughout Ireland, complete with music notation, game instructions and background notes setting each game in its historical perspective. In this collection I have included long forgotten games, such as 'Thread the Needle' and 'Here Is One Knight' - games of great antiquity that give us glimpses of the Middle Ages. There are also the more popular games, such as 'Nuts in May', 'The Farmer's in His Den' and 'Briar Rosebud' that are as familiar to the children of Europe and America as they are to the children of Ireland. These are the games that have survived 'the usual rubbing or blurring consequent on long use among unlettered people'. The versions I have given are not the definitive ones and, inevitably, readers will have different ways of playing the games. This does not detract from them but emphasises the tenacity of children's folklore, the survival of which has defied time and place." Interior - very light toning to inside of covers, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - very light rubbing, minor edge wear, small scuff on bottom of text block.
