-------------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, gift inscription, this copy has been signed by the author, 413 pages, b&w photos, ---"Fortune's a River is the most authoritative and readable account to date of just how British Columbia became British and how Oregon, Washington and Alaska became American. By the closing years of the 18th century, the stage was set for a major international confrontation over the Northwest Coast. Imperial Russia was firmly established in Alaska, Spain was extending its trade routes north from Mexico, Captain James Cook had claimed Northwest America for England and Captain Robert Gray had claimed the Columbia River region for the United States. Open warfare between Spain and England was narrowly averted during the Nootka Sound Controversy of 1789-1794, and again between Britain and the US in the War of 1812, when a British warship seized American property in Oregon. ---In Fortune's a River, noted historian Barry Gough re-examines this Imperial struggle for possession of the future British Columbia and fully evokes its peculiar drama. It turned out the great powers were reluctant conquerors in this area. Russia and Spain withdrew of their own accord. Britain was in a position to dominate, but couldn't be bothered. The US vaguely wished to fulfill its manifest destiny by securing the Northwest Coast, but it was not a priority. In the end the battle was carried on by private enterprise and individuals of vision. Alexander Mackenzie established an overland route to the coast and with his partners Simon Fraser and David Thompson, set up a network of fur trading forts south to Oregon. US president Thomas Jefferson countered by sending out the Lewis and Clark expedition to strengthen American claims and an American entrepreneur, John Jacob Astor, established a lonely US outpost at Astoria. Gough examines each of the players in this territorial drama, bringing them fully to life and vividly recounting their hardships and struggles. Fortune's a River is a major historical work that reads like a wild west adventure."---, ---contents are: Map of Northwest America; Prologue --- John Ledyard: "The Very Football of Chance" ; 1.

Illustrated with dozens of vintage and current images, this book pays tribute to the people, stores, restaurants, and theatres that made "The Avenue" so vibrant, while examining the factors that led to its decline, and its prospects for the future. ---Do you remember catching a flick at the old Capitol Theatre or choosing a shirt from the rack at Woolworth’s? Had your tarot cards read at The Chocolate Shop or stayed a night in the Vendome Hotel? Have you ever chowed down on a famous clubhouse sandwich from The Wagon Wheel? Portage Avenue has been the pulse of this city’s downtown for decades, and it has seen its share of both glory and shame over the years. In Going Downtown: A History of Winnipeg’s Portage Avenue, author Russ Gourluck takes a stroll along the blocks of Portage Avenue to uncover both the people and the buildings and businesses that have helped to shape -the Avenue into this city’s best known street."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

One of the most ambitious expeditions was the attack in November 1838 when hundreds of members of a secret organization, the Patriot Hunters, sailed down the St. Lawrence River and landed near Prescott, Ontario, where they occupied a stone windmill.It took five days of bloody fighting by British regulars and Canadian militia to defeat the invasion and capture the invaders. The prisoners were taken to Fort Henry in Kingston and tried, resulting in 11 executions and 40 deportations to Australian penal colonies. The Windmill stands today as a national historic site.The book is well illustrated with about 100 maps, archival pictures and original artwork by renowned marine artist Peter Rindlisbacher.

Yet most of what we know of these two English gentlewomen who spent their adult lives struggling in Britain's harsh and vigorous colony comes from their own self-consciously crafted writings and from other writers' sometimes fanciful depictions of them. But what were the women behind the authorial voices really like? In Sisters in the Wilderness, award-winning author Charlotte Gray breathes life into two remarkable and fascinating characters and brings us a vivid picture of life in the backwoods of Upper Canada."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
