Like residents of coastal communities throughout Nova Scotia and the Maritimes, these islanders have scratched out a living in tough times and enjoyed an unimagined affluence in fishing's boon times. No Tancooker wants to return to the "good old days" of no electricity, no phones, no cars, and no ferry service to the mainland. But every Tancooker wonders how they can keep some distance from the faster pace of the "main" and the "progress" that has altered the fabric of small communities everywhere"---, 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 without inscription by Berton, 236 pages, ---"In this "compendium of the absurd," Pierre Berton looks back on some of the fads, follies, and fancies of his century--a period his grandchildren are already calling the Olden Days. In close to fifty essays, fables, and pseudo-documents, Berton covers a variety of twentieth-century customs, from modern funeral practices to Hollywood's immutable rules for movie car chases. He covers everything from TV talk shows that feature nutty female clairvoyants to James Bond's appalling lack of political correctness. He looks into the future and faces up to the problem supersonic airliners will soon have trying to show full-length movies on shorter flights. (His solution: show the opeinging scenes in the airport limousine.) --And he has not neglected what he considers the most absurd phenomenon of the twentieth century--the Cold War. This is not a tome to be pored over in the study. It belongs on the bedside table or perhaps in the bathroom. It is ideal fodder for the beach or poolside and an essential alternative for those who find their view of the movie blocked by the flight attendants trying to serve them fish or chicken."---, 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 without inscription by Berton, 632 pages, ---"From the Introduction ---"I have called this period Canada’s Turbulent Years - turbulent not only because of the battles we fought on the African veldt, the ravaged meadows of Flanders, the forbidding spine of Italy, and the conical hills of Korea, but turbulent in other ways. These were Canada’s formative years, when she resembled an adolescent, grappling with the problems of puberty, often at odds with her parents, craving to be treated as an adult, hungry for the acclaim of her peers, and wary of the dominating presence of a more sophisticated neighbour. --Canada's twentieth century can be divided roughly into two halves. All the wars and all the unnecessary battles in which Canadian youth was squandered belong to the first -from the autumn of 1899 to the summer of 1953. From the mid-1950s on, Canada has concerned itself not with war but with peace. --The first war of the century, which took Canadian soldiers to South Africa, and the last, which sent them to Korea, bracket the bookends on the shelf of history. They have a good deal in common with, these two minor conflicts, whose chronicles pale when compared to the bloodbaths of the two world wars. --Canada's wartime days are long past, and for many, the scars of war have healed. Vimy has been manicured clean, its pockmarked slopes softened by a green mantle of Canadian pines. Dieppe has reverted to a resort town, its beaches long since washed free of Canadian blood. Nowadays, Canadians are proud of their role as Peacekeepers, from which they have gained a modicum of international acclaim the nation has always craved, with precious little blood wasted in the process. --In this monumental work, Pierre Berton brings Canadian history to life once again, relying on a host of sources, including newspaper accounts and first-hand reports, to tell the story of these four wars through the eyes of the privates in the trenches, the generals at the front, and the politicians and families back home. By profiling the interwar years, Berton traces how one war led to the next, and how the country was changed in the process. Illustrated with maps and line drawings, Marching as to War describes how the experience of war helped to bind Canada together as a nation and chronicles the transformation of Canada's dependence upon Great Britain and its slow emergence as an independent nation caught in a love-hate relationship with the United States.
