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

---------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, 197 pages, b&w photos, ---"A Canadian icon on his longstanding love of the West and his life in "one of the last true cowboy countries on either side of the border." ---"I live on a ranch about six miles east of the town of Longview and the old Cowboy Trail in the foothills of the Rockies. 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

One night, a blizzard brings him together with another great lover of nature, Nicolas Vanier. From that meeting is born The Last Trapper, first the movie, then the book. The Last Trapper is the story of a year spent trapping and waiting, living in harmony with a world increasingly endangered by man. It is the story of a trapper like no other, who lives by 'harvesting without impoverishing', committed to preserving the natural balance of flora and fauna. He lives his life on the principle that man has a rightful place in nature, a place which he must assert without abusing his rights. This is the portrait of a type of man who faces extinction -an astonishingly moving portrait, steeped in colour and natural beauty, of a real relationship with animals, as companions or prey, that is founded on respect and love." ---,, overseas shipping (outside of Canada and the USA ) will require additional postage, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

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. "Don't Call Me a Legend" is a legacy of modern aviation stories that are unique to anything that has ever been told."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

-----------trade paperback, a Very Good+ copy with just a wee bit of very light rubbing, 350 pages, b&w photos, ---"John Nicholas Ringling's years in Sarasota spanned the final quarter-century of his life. On Florida's west coast, as the Ringling's Circus became "the greatest show on earth," he collected Baroque paintings, European decorative art, and Italian statuary, built the ostentatious mansion Ca'd'Zan, developed and marketed most of the barrier islands around Sarasota Bay, and became the focus of a confusing pastiche of acclaim, misconception, and suspicion. Sarasota's Ringling Museum is his priceless cultural legacy to the people of Florida and the world of art--an inheritance at risk for the ten years that Ringling's estate was in probate. -- The author of this first intensive look at Ringling's presence in Sarasota sets the man against the backdrop of Florida from World War I through the land boom and the turbulent twenties into the depression years and Ringling's lapse into obscurity. -- Illustrated with nearly fifty black-and-white photographs, many never before published, this is the chronicle of a man, as the foreword claims, "who was not afraid to think or live on a grand scale, who knew what he wanted from life, and from art." ---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
