"The Great Adven turer is a fresh and lively narrative of the Trojan War, that conflict which was first recounted in the ancient Grecian mytns about the deeds of gods and heroes and men. Homer, the half-legendary poet ot the ninth century B.C., derived from these myths his vivid account, in The Iliad, of the long siege of Troy. In The Odyssey the poet told of the long wanderings of the Greek hero Odysseus in his attempt to reach home atter Troy had fallen. The Great Adventurer combines these stories in a single account. It follows Homersubstantially, apart from a number of details which the story-teller is en titled to follow her own fancy." (from the In troduction, p. v). Contents :1.

BAILEY, Alfred Goldsworthy. The Conflict of European and Eastern Algonkian Cultures 1504-1700 : A Study in Canadian Civilization. Second Edition. (Toronto) : University of Toronto Press, (1969). Pp. (8),[ix]-xxiii,(3),[1]-218. 8vo, brown cloth with black titles to spine. New Brunswick Museum Monograph Series number 2. Helm, The Indians of the Subarctic : A Critical Bibliography 9. "The movement of one cultural group into the territory of another has always produced conflict: a conflict which is resolved at times by the obliteration of one group, but more often by a gradual fusion of elements drawn from both. This study examines the conflict between the Europeans and the Indians precipitated by the arrival of the French in the New World. TheIndians were necessarily affected by the fur trade andthe religious and so cial development of New France, and the meeting of contrary cultures resulted in most cases in the obliteration of that of the Indian. However, a fusion of Indian and European elements sometimes occurred, resulting in the birth of a 'Canadian' culture. The process has been repeated with teh immigration of every new cultural group to Canada. This study analyses the conflictand traces thef usion of Canadian culture in its initial stage. First publ ished in 1937, the book has proved an important contribution to an area of early Canadian history which has been receiving renewed attention. This volume is a reprinting of the original text with the addition of an index and a chapter appraising some of the leading developments of the past few years." - from the dustjacket. Chapters : 1. The Aboriginal Population; 2. Occasional Contact on the Gulf Coast; 3. Acadia at the Turn of the Century; 4. The Eastern Algonkians and the Balance of Power; 5. The Displacement of Materials; 6.

Yet if the English had anything to do with a historical Arthur, it was as his bitterest enemies and hi-jackers of the British heritage. This book, which brings together the work of leading international scholars, is the first comprehensive treatment of Arthurian literature in the English languageto the end of the Middle Ages and traces the process by which the Arthuria n legends were assimilated to become an important part of the English cultural heritage. Literary studies are interspersed with chapters on the political and social manifestations of the Arthurian legend, the influence of continental romance tradition, and the mediaeval legacy to later centuries of English literature." -- from rear cover.
