So they come, the brilliant, disillusionedones - from New York and Connecticut, and from nearer Halifax - each with his private reason for seeking to escape. It was a dangerous game they played ... while the April winds stripped bare their pretensions and the hot sun seared their exposed wounds, inflaming passions they scarcely knew existed, and irrevocably changing their lives ... To classify this novel as a work ot brilliant analytical insight is to tell only part of the story. Each page vibrates with a liveliness that is both physical and mental; the book sparkles with wit and variety. The Cruelest Month is an unforgettable literary experience.

Orange, Ernest Buckler: An Annotated Bibliography A1, Watters p.253, Laugher p.65, Rhodenizer p.788. His first novel. "The publishers are honored to present in Ernest Buckler's The Mountain and the Valley a novel they believe to be of true literary distinction. This is a story of farm people in Nova Scotia, their dignity and their love and their loneliness. More specifically it is about the Canaan family - Grandmother Ellen, who lives increasingly in the fabric of her memories; her son Joseph, a quiet man but a firm one; his wife Martha, whose sense of fulfillment and harmony vanishes in flare-ups of jealousy; and thier children, Chris and Anna. But mostly it is about David Canaan, Anna's devoted twin. The Mountain and the Valley is David's story in the years from shy, sensitive childhood to the waning of young manhood. "We meet the village boys from whom David always feels a separateness, and Effie, his first and only love, prematurely known and losttoo early. There is Effie's mother, Bess, with whom David finds a guilty k ind of solace, and Toby, the city boy from Halifax, David's pen-pal who become a disappointment to David, but not to Anna. We know David's wild dissatisfaction with the farm life, with the pig-sticking, and the rock-hauling, and a calm that he thinks stupidity, and as a counterpoise, his abinding love for the people close to him, for the farm and the woods, the mountain and the valley. Here at last - there has not been one for years - is a rich novel that creates farm people as they are, as dignified and complex, as truly sophisticated as any city dwellers. Seldom does a first novel bear comparison with writings as distinguished as Willa Cather's My Antonia, O.E. Rölvaag's Giants in the Earth, and H.L. Davis' Honey in the Horn. But The Mountain and the Valley, written by a man mature both in experience and in years, belongs in the great tradition of these novels about the earth and the people who wrest their living from it. It is told with love and generosity, with memorable detail and a feeling for imagery that has rarely been excelled." - from the dj flaps [the dj is not with this copy].

"Ernest Buckler, acknowledged master of the novel (The Mountain and the Valley), short story (The Rebellion of Young David and Other Stories), and idyllic reminiscences (Ox Bells and Fireflies), adds to his list of literary successes by excelling in yet another genre - the humorous collection. Sometimes frivolous, sometimes fanciful, always gently satirical, Buckler's light verse and comic essays are done with just the right touch or light-hearted wisdom. Here are verbal pebbles forthe pocket... smooth rhymes and relaxing reflections, as literate as they are mirthful. With urbane wit and rustic ribaldry, Buckler pokes artectionate fun at everything from advertising to opera, from farming to history, from New Year's to Christmas. The upshot of it all is immense fun, but readers should realize that the foibles they'll be laughing at may be their own" - front dj flap "An easygoing collection of wit, whimsy, and wisdom from Canada's master of prose" - from rear panel of dj.

BUCKLER, Ernest. Whirligig : Selected Prose and Verse. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (1977). First Edition. Pp (6),7-128. 8vo, brown cloth, black lettering to spine. Orange, Ernest Buckler: An Annotated Bibliography A5, Laugher p.65, Spadoni & Donnelly 2822. "Ernest Buckler, acknowledged master of the novel (The Mountain and the Valley), short story (The Rebellion of Young David and Other Stories), and idyllic reminiscences (Ox Bells and Fireflies), adds to his list of literary successes by excelling in yet another genre - the humorous collection. Sometimes frivolous, sometimes fanciful, always gently satirical, Buckler's light verse and comic essays are done with just the right touch or light-hearted wisdom. Here are verbal pebbles forthe pocket... smooth rhymes and relaxing reflections, as literate as they are mirthful. With urbane wit and rustic ribaldry, Buckler pokes artectionate fun at everything from advertising to opera, from farming to history, from New Year's to Christmas. The upshot of it all is immense fun, but readers should realize that the foibles they'll be laughing at may be their own" - front dj flap "An easygoing collection of wit, whimsy, and wisdom from Canada's master of prose" - from rear panel of dj.

18 BUCKLER, Ernest CHAMBERS, Robert D., (ed.) Rebellion of Young David and Other Stories. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1975, ISBN:0771017669 
BUCKLER, Ernest. The Rebellion of Young David and Other Stories. Selected and arranged by Robert D. Chambers. (Toronto) : McClelland and Stewart Limited, (1975). First Edition. Pp (8),3-138. 8vo, off white cloth, brown lettering to spine. Orange, Ernest Buckler: An Annotated Bibliography A4, Laugherp.65, Spadoni & Donnelly 2624. "By the author of "one of the greatest nove ls in the English language" (as poet Alden Nowlan termed "The Mountain and the Valley"), these remarkable short stories reveal the creative faculties of Ernest Buckler in what will be to many of his readers a new light. The vast audience who have enjoyed this distinguished novelist's longer works, can at last appreciate his refined mastery of the shorter fiction form in fourteen stories brought together for the first time in a single volume. The varying moods and emotions of these stories are distilled in a highly concentrated state through the author's intoxication with words, through his useof fresh and unusual images, and his impassioned, imaginative extension of language to its expressive limits. As always with writers ot Buckler's sta ture, the themes are universal - past and present, city and country, familyand outsider, father and son. And for Buckler, that universality is rooted in the specific reality of the Nova Scotia landscape, which is brought to life with such intensity that it becomes a shared experience for the reader, an experience strengthened by the common ground of nature and human relationships, rendered with power, sensitivity and penetrating simplicity.
