----------softcover, about 6 x 9 inches, a Very Good+ copy with a wee bit of light rubbing, 289 pages, b&w photos, an advance uncorrected proof copy, ---"Long before she became the renowned author of the best-selling Schmecks cookbooks, an award-winning journalist for magazines such as Macleans, and a creative non-fiction mentor, Edna Staebler was a writer of a different sort. Staebler began serious diary writing at the age of sixteen and continued to write for over eighty years. Must Write: Edna Staebler's Diaries draws from these diaries selections that map Staebler's construction of herself as a writer and documents her frustrations and struggles, along with her desire to express herself, in writing. She felt she must write-that not to write was a "denial of life"-while at the same time she doubted the value of her scribblings. --Spanning much of the twentieth century-each decade is introduced by an overview of key events in the author's life during that period-the diaries vividly illuminate both her intensely personal experiences and her broader social world. The volume also presents four key examples of Staebler's public writing: her first published magazine article; her first award-winning publication; the opening chapter of her book Cape Breton Harbour; and her lively account of the Great Cookie War. Must Write: Edna Staebler's Diaries portrays an ordinary woman's struggle to write in the context of her lived experience. "All my life I have talked about writing and kept scribbling in my notebook, as if that makes me a writer," wrote Staebler in 1986. This volume argues that the very act of writing the diaries, with all their contradictory accounts of writerly ambition, success, and conflict, made Staebler the writer she yearned to be.

Originally published in 1976, A Man Called Intrepid sold over 2 million copies and quickly became a New York Times bestseller. However, readers will be just as fascinated by his life’s story and adventures. Stevenson chronicles the major events of his life, beginning with his daring and dangerous time as a naval pilot during WWII flying a multitude of new aircraft -Stringbag, Tiger Moth, Seafire, Hellcats -and learning various maneuvers in the skies over England, Canada, Scotland, and the Pacific. After the war, still yearning for adventure, he returns to Canada to write for The Toronto Daily Star, where he first meets William Stephenson (aka Intrepid ) on assignment and develops a lifelong friendship. Stevenson travels the globe, visiting Hong Kong, Delhi, Kashmir, Kenya, Kuala Lumpur, Moscow, Thailand, and many other exotic locals, where he meets iconic figures, such as Ian Fleming, Prime Minister Nehru, Ho Chi Minh, Chiang Kai-shek, Mao Tse-tung, Zhou Enlai, Tito, Khrushchev, and the King of Thailand among others. Privy to confidential information, full of international intrigue, Stevenson is a living embodiment of Twentieth Century history. Past to Present, with story after amazing story to tell, will leave the reader breathless."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

In Taormina, Sicily, they cheerfully disagree with Mrs. Tweedie's 1904 assertion that the beautiful town "is being spoilt," and skip the Grand Tour in favor of swimming holes, table soccer, and taureaux piscine. In Paris, they spend a day on the Champs- Elysées comparing Freetime's "le Hitburger" to McDonald's Big Mac. In Spain, Trillin wonders whether he will run out of Spanish "the way someone might run out of flour or eggs." Filled with Trillin's characteristic humor, Travels with Alice is the perfect book for summer travelers."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

On a perfect day, like today, I can't imagine being anywhere else in the world. Of course, I'm not going to say there aren't those other days when you think, ''What am I doing here?'' It's beautiful country and it can be brutally tough as well." ---Ian Tyson's journey to the West began in the unlikely city of Victoria, BC, where he rode his dad's horses on the weekends and met cowboys in the pages of Will James's books, and eventually followed that cowboy dream to rodeo competition. Laid up after breaking a leg, he learned the guitar, and drifted east, becoming a key songwriter and performer in the folk revival movement. But the West always beckoned, and when his marriage to his partner and collaborator Sylvia broke up and the music scene threatened to grind him down, he retreated to a ranch and work with cutting horses. Soon, he'd bought a ranch in Alberta and found a new voice as the renowned Western Revival singer-songwriter and horseman he is today. This book is Ian's reflection on that journey---"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, signed by Wallace and Vaughn (without inscription), 234 pages, b&w photos, ---"Charlie Vaughn is a modern aviation legend. His remarkable career is a one-man history of how blue collar flying has evolved in Canada over the last 50 years. Charlie has worked as a pilot in flying training, float flying, agriculture aviation, charter flying, sightseeing, frost flying, air racing, cargo flying, aircraft ferrying, courier flying, test flying and corporate aviation. As an international delivery pilot, Charlie has touched down in most countries of the world. He has made 68 crossings of the Atlantic Ocean in small and medium-sized aircraft. He has flown completely around the world nine times. Along the way, Charlie battled bad weather, mechanical failures, bureaucratic red tape, heat, cold and exhaustion. Charlie has delivered a Cessna Skymaster to Botswana, a de Havilland Twin Otter across the Pacific and a Hawker Siddeley through Russia. He is probably the only pilot who has been pulled over by a police cruiser while low flying along Sherbrooke Street in downtown Montreal in bad weather. In 1996, Charlie Vaughn celebrated his 70th birthday and his 50th anniversary in aviation. "Don't Call Me a Legend" is his story. It is the inspiring account of how this Niagara area farm boy spent five years obtaining a Commercial Pilot Licence and went on to become a world renowned pilot.
