Pp (4),v-vi,1-210,+ 8-page central section of b&w photos. 8vo, photo-illustrated brown card covers. Monica Graham (b. 1954). "He was a sailor, a miner, a bounty hunter, a prospector, a firefighter, a ghost hunter, a railway guard, and a strike buster - among other things. But Peter Owen Carroll, a.k.a. Peachie, is best remembered as the celebrated and controversial Maritime police detective of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Fired and re-hired many times, and with a checkered history on both sides of the law, Peachie Carroll was a formidable police investigator who arrested moonshine-makers and rum-runners, petty thieves and embezzlers. Peachie also solved some of the Maritimes’ most sensational crimes, including the 1892 murder of Moncton police officer Joseph E. Stedman and the 1896 killing of Eliza Dutcher and her son. In The Great Maritime Detective, author Monica Graham explores Peachie's upbringing in Pictou, his early career in law enforcement, and his adventures searching for gold in the West. Already a long-standing hero of Pictou County, Peachie is truly one of the Maritimes' most colourful characters." - from the back cover. Gift inscription, else very good. 10.00

104 CARTER, Dyson CARTER, Herbert Dyson Sea of Destiny : The Story of Hudson Bay, America's Undefended Back Door. First Edition.

CARTER, H. Dyson. Sea of Destiny : The Story of Hudson Bay, America's Undefended Back Door. New York : Greenberg Publisher, (1940). First Edition.

Herbert Dyson Carter was born in Saint John, February 2, 1910.He was living in Saint Boniface, Manitoba at the time of publication. "In the late 1930s Carter also began a scholarlywork of historical geography which urged the development of Hudson Bay as a mercantile seaport for the Canadian wheat-farming regions, and as a base of naval defense against a possible invasion of North America. Sea of Destiny (1940) was very pro-Russian, drawing a comparison between the USSR's development of its Arctic and Canada's neglect of its own northern territories. It was also anti-German, suggesting that Nazi submarines and battleships might well exploit the Bay as a major point of vulnerability in North American defenses. Reviewers were impressed by this knowledgeable introduction to a neglected feature of North American history and geography - although the isolationist New York Times reviewer dismissed Carter's "alarmist" prophecies that the European war might be carried into the Arctic." - James Doyle. 1.

CHAULK, Bob. Time in a Bottle : Historic Halifax Harbour From the Bottom Up. Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia, Canada : Pottersfield Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp (8),9-256. Illustrated with b&w photos in the text. 8vo, photo- and map- illustrated grey card covers. Robert 'Bob' Chaulk (b. Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland). "Hundreds of dives in the largest natural harbour inNorth America have given Bob Chaulk an extraordinary perspective on the hi story of the continent. On the waters of Halifax Harbour sailed the men whotook the New World from its inhabitants and then fought among themselves f or control, ultimately settling and building a community that they had to fight to keep. They all left their mark on the harbour floor. The Portuguese, the French, the British, the Americans, and the Canadians have all left their signatures in the artifacts that have accumulated in Halifax Harbour for over 300 years. "The author skilfully unfolds the true story of the scuba divers who explore the hostile environment of the harbour throughout the year. Contending with strong currents, polluted waters, massive ships, and freezing water temperatures, this offbeat group spends their winter weekends diving beneath harbour ice, among warships and weaving among the pillars under the huge docks on the waterfront. "Chaulk writes of their adventures diving in winter blizzards, checking out everything from live bombs and sunken ships to mundane items like medicine bottles that once contained cures for everything from baldness in people to diarrhea in chickens. He tells ofthe challenges of handling the complex equipment required for this extreme sport, anticipating overhead vessel movements, and the careful navigation needed to get back to shore in murky waters while avoiding entanglement in mountains of twisted cable, sunken railway tracks and old wrecks. "Bob Chaulk is a Halifax writer with a passion for the ocean around Canada's Atlantic coast. He weaves together the historic tales of how bad weather, bad navigation and bad luck have resulted in the tragic losses of ships and people in and around the harbour. He tells of how the long-lost remnants of these sad incidents are being rediscovered and visited regularly by wreck divers,who photograph, research and document the events so that their stories may be preserved." - rear cover.
