-----------hardcover, about 12.25 x 10.25 inches, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, 159 pages, spectacular colour photos throughout, laid into this copy is a media release info sheet, ---"In this remarkable collection of photographs, Fritz Mueller captures fleeting, compelling moments in a timeless Yukon landscape, one of the world's wildest and most overlooked wilderness areas. The view through Mueller's lens is influenced by his scientific roots and inspired by his visual artist's aesthetic. Although the beauty of this raw landscape is a central theme, his images also tell the story of a magnificent, complex natural system. Mueller takes us on the annual migration of the Porcupine caribou herd, and he captures intimate portraits of icy grizzly bears gorging on salmon at the Arctic Circle. His appreciation for nature's minutiae—voles, berries, frogs—is a refreshing perspective on a landscape writ large. This photographic work is complemented by an evocative text by Teresa Earle. We learn about the Yukon's vulnerability, as shown in photographs of fragile tundra ecosystems, a rare orchid photographed in a top-secret location, and an icefield bathed in the pink glow of desert dust carried from halfway around the globe. The book is a deeply personal project for this husband and wife team, who spent much of the past two decades exploring landscapes that have defined both their relationship and their passion for wild places. The authors offer an exquisite portrayal of a wild place on the cusp of change. As wilderness vanishes and intact ecosystems deteriorate, the Yukon remains one of the last wild hot spots, a conservation treasure of international significance.."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

---------softcover, a Very Good+ copy with a bit of light rubbing, signed and inscribed by the author, 56 pages, b&w illustrations, ---"George Washington saved his neck, Joseph Brant watched his back -- The view from the other side in the American Revolution. ---IF PONIES RODE MEN is the harrowing true story of Loyalist Robert Land set against the blood and smoke of America's first civil war. It chronicles the real-life adventures and adversities of Land as a British spy, backwoods recruiter and comrade-in-arms to the legendary Mohawk war chief, Joseph Brant. Burned out of his Pennsylvania homestead and sentenced to death for treason, he was spared the gallows by a judicious George Washington. ---One son was hanged by Patriots, one son died in the squalor of wartime New York City and one son fought alongside American turncoat Benedict Arnold. ---And behind the whole family stood Land's wife, the courageous Phoebe who kept her family together through all the dark days of privation and heartbreak. At the end of the war the family was reunited and became the founding first family of the city of Hamilton, Ontario. ---Drawing on extensive research of the historical record and sound understanding of the times, author and historian James Elliott has taken a Hamilton legend and rendered it believably whole in a work of imagination and scholarship that has been praised by novelists and historians alike. ---IF PONIES RODE MEN is a story of war and refuge, the view from the other side in the American Revolution where loyalty to the King exacted a steep price in blood, cost thousands their birthright as citizens and spawned the beginning of a new northern nation."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

A prospector himself and a reputed mining engineer, he was also a famed football star and the amateur boxing champion of the American West Coast. This is the story of his life --Jack Munroe was a legendary character. He was a man of heroic proportions; the savior of Golden City, a World Class heavyweight boxer, a millionaire prospector, a writer, a soldier, and the man whose collie was the inspiration for Lassie. Munroe came from humble roots in Cape Breton. A natural athlete and adventurer, he went west in search of gold. In Montana a chance exhibition boxing match lead to a boxing career, and his record included heavyweight bouts against the World’s best, Champion J.J. Jefferies and Jack Johnson. It made him an international celebrity. But his true passion was prospecting, and his successes in Northern Ontario only added to his reputation. --When war was declared in 1914 he gave it all up, and enlisted as a Private in the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry. He brought his faithful collie with him, and ‘Bobbie Burns’ went to war as the first Regimental mascot of the ‘Patricias’. Munroe survived the destruction of his Regiment at Bellwaerde Ridge in 1915, only to have his war ended by a sniper’s bullet a few months later. --Severely disabled by his wounds, Munroe was repatriated to Canada, and he returned to his true love, prospecting in Northern Ontario. In Jack Munroe, Canada’s Forgotten Hero Dorothy Farmiloe has resurrected the long-forgotten story of this exceptional Canadian."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

Born to humble circumstances in Scotland in 1796, he emigrated to Canada in 1816 to become a stonemason in Montreal. By 1818 he had his own building and contracting firm and was working on the Lachine Canal as well as much construction and restoration work on buildings in Montreal. His work on the Rideau Canal, as contracted by Colonel John By, established his business reputation, while his leadership within the Presbyterian Church stabilized his position in the community. His involvement in the political and military life of Montreal is traced from before the 1837 Rebellion period through to his involvement with the Annexation Movement, making him an obvious candidate for the Montreal City Council. ---The author traces John Redpath's upwardly mobile social status, his friendship with Peter McGill, and his acceptance into the elite society of Montreal, earning him a place within the coveted Square Mile. Despite a rigorous business schedule and extensive family responsibilities (he fathered 17 children), he was a frequent benevolent contributor to community needs, as well as participating on numerous Boards and Committees and contributing to the shaping of the urban design of Montreal. Attention is given to his expansive home, Terrace Bank, the subsequent subdivision of his estate and the early residential expansion of Montreal, and to his founding of the Canada Sugar Refinery and its growth."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

During the Victorian era Halifax enjoyed lively commerce and manufacturing and an active and progressive social and cultural life. The early decades of the twentieth century, punctuated by economic depression, world war and the devastation of the 1917 Explosion, were difficult for the city. It was not until the 1960s that Halifax started to prosper again, its growth fuelled by government policies and trends favouring urbanization. ---Halifax: The First 250 Years brings together extensive research into the diversity of the city''s development with more than 300 illustrations, many in colour, providing a vivid portrait of the city and its diverse residents through the years"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------trade paperback, a solid Very Good+ copy with a bit of light wear, 189 pages, b&w photos, illustrations and maps, ---"Francis Simcoe was the eldest son of John Graves Simcoe and Elizabeth Gwillim. his father is celebrated as the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada; his mother for her Canadian diary and watercolour sketches. Francis was one year old when his family arrived at Newark (Niagara-on-the-Lake) in 1792, and almost six when they returned to England. ---Letters written by his mother, sisters, and himself reveal his childhood at Eton. At sixteen, he was an ensign in the 27th Inniskilling Regiment. From the beginning of his military career, he kept journals and wrote many letters preserved by the family. His service began in ireland and ended under Wellington - he died leading a storming party in the Trinidad breach at Badajoz, Spain, a thoroughly bloody, costly battle in the Peninsular war. ---The army had lost a talented young officer. As a warrior, Francis possessed the qualities that had carried his father from ensign to lieutenant general. Letters and journals disclose a soldier who was also an intelligent, loving human being. Of special interest are Francis' associates who spent time in Canada - the Duke of Richmond, Edward Littlehales, James Kempt, and Julia Somerville (more than a friend?) who became Mrs. Francis Bond Head four years after young Simcoe's death."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------trade paperback, about 5.25 x 8.25 inches, a Near Fine copy, 256 pages, b&w photos, --- The Avro Arrow vaulted Canada into the front ranks of military aircraft design and manufacturing. Less than a year later, the Arrow program was cancelled and Avro Canada went from being one of Canada's largest corporations to a bitter memory. The completed Arrows, jet fighters full of cutting edge technology and capable of flying at twice the speed of sound, were put to the torch. The Arrow became a subject of controversy that goes on today, nearly 50 years after it flew. In this new book, aerospace historian Chris Gainor explores the reasons for the Arrows demise., any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
