Macmillan Company of Canada Limited, Toronto, 1971, 
BAIRD, Irene. The Climate of Power. Toronto : Macmillan of Canada, (1971). First Canadian Edition. Pp (6),7-255,(1). 8vo, blue cloth, silver letteringto spine. Irene (Todd) Baird (1901-1981) was born in England and came to C anada in 1919. "George McKenna's long career as a senior civil servant in the Canadian corridors of power is drawing to a close and he is fighting desperately to stay in power. McKenna is not the man to let himself be just pushed aside. He fights his battles with whatever weapons come to hand, but the odds are against him and in favour of Roy Wragge, a much younger man whofor some time has been confidently breathing down his neck. Besides, an ab le young minister, out to make his reputaion, has just taken over the department and is making a clean sweep with the past. The Minister runs into trouble in Parliament over a fake rumour of trouble in a remote Arctic village, and one way or another this also puts McKenna on the spot. The story moves to the far north where the smouldering conflict betwen McKenna and Wraggereaches crisis point. Only his young wife, with whom McKenna is very much in love but who makes no secret of her infidelity, guesses what happened upthere.... The Climate of Power is an exciting story that moves between the tensions of power in Ottawa and that mysterious one-third of Canada within the Arctic Circle that only a fraction of the world has ever seen." - from the dj. Penned name, else very good in nicked dustjacket, with a few short tears. 20.00

BAMHARDT, Ray, and J. Kelly TONSMEIRE (eds.). Lessons Taught / Lessons Learned : Teachers' Reflections on Schooling In Rural Alaska. Fairbanks : Alaska Department of Education, University of Alaska Fairbanks, May, 1988. Pp (4),[v]-vii,(3),3-141,(1). Illustrated. 4to, illustrated grey card covers, lettered in black. "While there have been many reports over the years describing and analyzing schooling processes in rural Alaska, only rarely have we had an opportunity to see those processes through the eyes of the teacher. This collection of essays provides one such opportunity. The essays included here were selected from over fifty that were submitted by teachers who participated in the First Annual Rural Alaska Instructional Improvement Academy in Fairbanks in May, 1987. The essays were written as a followup to the academy, based on the teachers' reflections on their own experiences in rural schools, as well as on the academy workshops they attended and on the four readings included in the last section of this publication. The teachers were asked to write about either their own notion of the ideal schooling process for rural Alaska (first section of essays), or what they considered to be an appropriate curriculum unit for village schools (second section)." (from the Introduction). Contents : Foreword (by J. Kelly Tonsmiere). Introduction (by Ray Barnhardt). Section I - Some Thoughts on Village Schooling : "Appropriate Schools in Rural Alaska" (by Todd Bergman, New Stuyahok); "Learning Through Experience" (by Judy Hoeldt, Kaltag); "The Medium Is The Message For Village Schools" (by Steve Byrd, Wainwright); "Multiple Intelligences: A Community Learning Campaign" (by Raymond Stein, Sitka); "Obstacles To A Community-Based Curriculum" (by Jim Vait, Eek); "Building the Dream House" (by Mary Moses-Marks, McGrath); "Community Participation in Rural Education" (by George Olana, Shishmaref); "Secondary Education in Rural Alaska"(by Pennee Reinhart, Kiana); "Reflections on Teaching in the Kuskokwim Del ta" (by Christine Anderson, Kasigluk); "Some Thoughts on Curriculum" (by Marilyn Harmon, Kotzebue). Section II - Some Suggestions for the Curriculum :"Rabbit Snaring and Language Arts" (by Judy Hoeldt, Kaltag); "A Senior Res earch Project for Rural High Schools" (by Dave Ringle, St. Mary's); "Curriculum Projects for the Pacific Region" (by Roberta Hogue Davis, College); "Resources for Exploring Japan's Cultural Heritage" (by Raymond Stein, Sitka); "Alaskans Experience Japanese Culture Through Music" (by Rosemary Branham, Kenai). Section III - Some Alternative Perspectives : "The Axe Handle Academy: A Proposal for a Bioregional, Thematic Humanities Education" (by Ron and Suzanne Scollon); "Culture, Community and the Curriculum" (by Ray Barnhardt); "The Development of an Integrated Bilingual and Cross-Cultural Curriculum in an Arctic School District" (by Helen Roberts); "Weaving CurriculumWebs: The Structure of Nonlinear Curriculum" (by Rebecca Corwin, George E.
