"Here is the true story of a parent's worst nightmare come true. Kevin Bonang's family learns that their oldest daughter, Tiffany Tanner, has suddenly gone missing while kayaking on an inner city canal in the northern industrial city of Hamm, Germany. Kevin and his wife Lisa immediately make the journey from Nova Scotia to Germany to help in the search. Once at the site, the true reality of their daughter's fate becomes obvious. No matter how optimistic local search officials try to be, Kevin and his wife fear the worst. When You Look For Me takes the reader through 17 days of the massive search, including encounters with police, searchdogs, an unkind media but much kinder everyday Germans who share their com passion for Tiffany's parents. After many grim conversations with search officials, the Bonangs begin to realize that they are not able to bring theirdaughter back home to Nova Scotia alive even though there had been some sm all glimmer of hope. The book then chronicles the many different stages of having to eventually bring their deceased daughter home and, in their own way, learn how to say goodbye to her. The author writes in an open and honest way, of learning to cope with seeing his dead daughter and the anguish ofvisitations, funeral and burial -- and even what they truly believe have b een Tiffany's visits home afterward. Kevin speaks eloquently of dealing with the emotions that stem from the grief of losing a child, from the numbness and disbelief to the pain of loss, to the healing that takes place to allow his family to move on. Kevin also describes a visit to his home by the spirit of his departed daughter and how that has helped to give this family comfort and hope." - from the back cover. Very good to fine. 10.00

Illustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Cassell 716. "This is the fascinating story of the golden age of arctic exploration, from Martin Frobisher in the sixteenth century to the controversial Vilhjalmur Stefansson in the early twentieth. It is a remarkable story of high adventure, of heroic feats of courage and endurance as well as dark episodes of murder and cannibalism. Martin Frobisher, who stood on Baffin Island and thought he was in China; Arthur Dobbs, who sought a northwest passage in the most improbable places; Samuel Hearne, who was forced to participate in an Indian-Inuit battle; John Franklin, whose doomed men took silk handkerchiefs and monogrammed silver on their death march; Thomas Simpson, who may have been driven mad by his arctic obsession; Charles Francis Hall, who was probably murdered because of his; Roald Amundsen, who went on an 800-km sled trip in an arctic winter in order to send a telegram. These are just a few of the 'discovery men' whose often incredible exploits are told in this book." - from the dust jacket. Contents: 1. The First Voyages; 2. Seeking the Hudson Bay Passage; 3.
