Very good in dustjacket. 50.00 "Nineteen eighty-nine marks the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the three-year Spanish civil war, which broke out in 1936. The year before, the Spanish people had elected a Republicangovernment pledged to democratic reforms, but General Francisco Franco was determined to overcome the new government and its objectives. To that end, he became leader of a generals' revolt which was supported by the army, ai r force and navy, and equipped by the fascist dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. The Spanish people fought back heroically. Stirred by theirvaliant struggle, men and women from many countries flocked to Spain to jo in the Spanish Republican army. Some forty thousand volunteered to serve inthe Republic's International Brigades, the first army of its type in recor ded history. Canada's Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion, about 1,440 strong, formed part of the 15th International Brigade, itself made up of English-speaking volunteers. Among these young men and women were Canada's first dead inthe fight against fascism. They lie buried in unmarked graves, remembered by their comrades, and a part of Canadian history. The story of the Canadians who fought in Spain in defence of democracy is movingly retold by a man who was himself a volunteer. " (from front flap oif dj). "Histories and other literature abound about the three-year Spanish civil war, 1936-1939, principally because the conflict drew at least forty thousand volunteers from many different countries who deliberately risked life and limb to aid the cause of the people of another country. The journey to Spain was fraught with difficulties. For some it meant climbing the Pyrenees at night, eluding the rifles and dogs of French border guards. Others were torpedoed by an Italian submarine on their way to Barcelona. Yet others were jailed. The Canadians who fought in the Spanish civil war, most of them politically conscious members of the working class, were pitched against the better-armed fascist forces for nearly three years before World War II began. Their story is one of costly victories and bitter losses. At the end, the surviving Canadian volunteers of the 15th International Brigade and the Mackenzie-Papineau Battalion faced difficulties returning to Canada, where the government rejected the idea that the men had fought for democracy. The volunteers were rewarded for their heroism by the Canadian people, however. Thousands turned out to welcome home Canada's first anti-fascist soldiers who had written a vivid, exceptional and inspiring chapter in Canadian history." (from th eback panel of dj).

"It's a perfectMay day in Regina, and the forsythia in Joanne Kilbourn's garden is in daz zling bloom. Friends and neighbours have gathered there to celebrate the fiftieth birthday of Joanne's new husband, Zack Shreve, among them Ginny Monaghan, the Conservative MP for their riding, whose presence causes quite a stir. A general election is just weeks away, and she is here to charm everyone into ignoring rumours about her recent sexual escapades. Ginny knows herpolitical future is in the balance, and she needs all the help she can get . By the end of the party, the sadness Zack's been feeling ever since his friend Ned Osler took his own life a few weeks earlier has lifted. But then his cellphone rings, and it's not someone calling to wish him happy birthday. It's the police with the news that a local call girl has been found murdered, a call girl with an impressive client list. Two names on it stand out: Ned Osler and Zack Shreve. Shaken by Zack's revelation that before he mether he regularly saw this woman, Joanne throws herself into her work -- a project on women and politics that Monaghan has agreed to co-operate with. But she's haunted by the prostitute's death and decides to find out why thedead woman had started to threaten her clients with blackmail, an investig ation that risks not just her marriage but her life. In 'The Brutal Heart',Bowen expertly mixes the ingredients of marriage, family, politics -- and murder -- into a constantly surprising and compulsively readable story. As Zack tells Joanne, it's the loose ends of our lives that hang us." - from the dustjacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 18.00

BOWEN, Gail. A Colder Kind of Death : A Joanne Kilbourn Mystery. (Toronto):McClelland & Stewart, (1994). First Printing. Pp. (6), 1-233, (1). 8vo, bl ue cloth with copper lettering to spine. "When a prisoner is shot to death in the exercise yard of a Saskatchewan penitentiary, Joanne Kilbourn finds herself haunted by a part of her past she wished had never happened. The dead prisoner is Kevin Tarpley, the man who six years earlier had brutally killed her politician husband, Ian, in a seemingly senseless act alongside the TransCanada Highway. The haunting takes on a more menacing cast several days later when Tarpley's sinister wife, Maureen, is discovered dead in a snow-swept Regina parking lot. A brightly coloured scarf is found wound tightly around her neck, a scarf that belongs to none other than Joanne Kilbourn. Soon this single mother, author, university professor, and TV-show panelist is deemed the "number one" suspect in Maureen Tarpley's demise. Joanne knows there has to be a connection between these two murders. But what is it? A cryptic letter sent to Joanne by Kevin Tarpley just days before his death intimates that Ian Kilbourn's killing may not have been as senseless as first assumed. In fact, there are hints that some of Ian's political colleagues may have been involved. But how deeply and in what way? Then there's the faded photograph of a pretty young woman and her baby that Joanne finds tucked in the wallet of her dead husband. Does it offer any clue to Ian's murder, or to the deaths of the Tarpleys? Warily, Joanne Kilbourn is forced to follow a tangled trail deep into a heartbreaking past she never knew existed. A Colder Kind of Death is the fourth novel featuring Gail Bowen's "reluctant sleuth," Joanne Kilbourn. With its deft mix of wry humour and mayhem, closely observed family scenes and gripping suspense, warm characterization and betrayal, it confirms Gail Bowen's stature as one of the greats of mystery fiction.

Gail Dianne Bowen, née Bartholomew (b. September 22, 1942, Toronto).

"Joanne Kilbourn and her husband, lawyer Zack Shreve, are proud parents of a budding art star. Everyone agrees that Taylor -- who hasn't yet turned fifteen -- is a gifted painter.

But the Shreves' pride is laced with concern: two of Taylor's works are hot items in a fundraising auction for the Racette-Hunter Centre, a multi-usefacility being build to serve North Central Regina's diverse community. Joanne and Zack have seen one of the paintings, but Taylor has carefully guarded the other, a portrait of a young male artist's model. When BlueBoy 21 is finally revealed, it sparks a new kind of relationship bewteen Taylor and her model, Julian Zentner, and becomes the centre of a series of troubling incidents, including theft, blackmail, and a shocking act of violence that threatens to ruin the lives of people close to the Kilbourn-Shreve family.

As Joanne and Zack work to keep everyone safe while searching out the truth behind more than one crime, Joanne grows increasingly uneasy about Julian's influence on Taylor. The more Joanne learns about him, the more certain she is that nobody knows the real Julian, and that there is something sinister in his plans for Taylor that may have irreparable consequences for an adolescent girl. When Taylor, always open-hearted and close to her parents, begins to shut them out, Joanne and Zack's darkest fears seem about to be realized." - from the dustjacket.

Gail Dianne Bowen, née Bartholomew (b. September 22, 1942, Toronto). "The city of Regina is no stranger to snowstorms, but the blizzard that hits town shortly before one Christmas is particularly brutal. It chokes streets, knocks out power lines, and leaves tragedyin its wake. In the house before the storm hits full force, Joanne Kilbour n and her family brave the weather for her daughter Taylor's school concert. They are on the point of leaving for home when a young woman, a stranger,walks up to Taylor's friend Isobel, thrusts an infant car seat into her ar ms, and disappears. In the car sea, wearing a Thomas the Tank Engine snowsuit, is a baby, probably six months old, with dark curly hair, just like Isobel's. The next day, after the blizzard has ended and the power has been restored, the young mother's frozen body is found. Under the cover of the storm, someone has raped and strangled her and then dumped her and her car in a parking lot. No one knows who she is or where she came from -- or why sheabandoned her child. Now two women want custody of the baby. Both with a c ompelling claim. Both able to give the child a good life. Both in turmoil over the mother's murder. Both now with a top lawyer prepared to fight in court. It is a heartbreaking case that threatens to tear more than one familyapart.

A history / genealogy of the Steeves family of New Brunswick.

"How did an undistinguished German farmer more than 250 years ago become the father of an extended new-world family? And how did one of his descendants, many years later, discover a vital part of the family history? Heinrich and Regina Stief left their homeland in 1748 and settled in Pennsylvania. From there, they and a band of fellow settlers migrated to the rough terrain around New Brunswick's Petticodiac River. Faced with starvation, frigid winters, and abandonment by their sponsors - among them Benjamin Franklin - the settlers defied the odds by not only surviving but prospering. Steeves descendants now number upwards of 150,000 worldwide." - from rear cover.

BOYD, Hugh. New Breaking : An Outline of Co-Operation Among the Farmers of Western Canada. Toronto & Vancouver : J. M. Dent & Sons (Canada) Limited, (March 1938). First Edition. Pp (10),11-215,(1), frontispiece + 12 leaves ofplates Jacket design by Rowland Trevor. Printed by the Hugh Heaton Printin g House, Limited. Hugh Ross Cameron Boyd (b. 24 Jul 1900 in Ashgrove, Inverness, Scotland - d. 14 Dec 1964 in Edmonton, Alberta). Peel 6157. Not in Watters. "• The author presents in this book an up-to-date and stimulating account of the long and well-sustained farmer struggle for the most satisfactory co-operative method of marketing our wheat and other farm produce. Thiis is coupled with the story of securing appropriate legislation and amendments, designed to protect the producer from the abuses and practices more orless inherent in the warehousing, transporting and handling of grain. • Th e principle of co-operation is amongst the most important of the great forces which are striving for the shaping of our civilization to-day. As a principle it is opposed to the idea ot the "survival of the fittest." Even whenthe system which glorified competition was in its heydey, many men and wom en turned in self-protection to another way of living, and in the mid-nineteenth century laid the foundations of a social and economic order m which co-operation was to be dominant. Everybody who is interested in this aspect of the ever-widening co-operative movement, will find "New Breaking" stimulating reading. • The story of the organised rural activities dating back tosmall beginnings at the turn of the century, are here set forth in consecu tive order, and in a manner designed to be fair and just to all parties concerned. Mr. Boyd has written an interesting, informative and readable book.• An appreciative Foreword is contributed by the Hon. W. R. Motherwell. " - from the dj.
