“In Frontier Cattle Ranching in the Land and Times of Charlie Russell, Warren Elofson debunks the myth of the American "wild west" and the Canadian "mild west" by demonstrating that cattlemen on both sides of the forty-ninth parallel shared a common experience. Focusing on Montana, Southern Alberta, Southern Saskatchewan, and the well-known figure of Charlie Russell - an artist and storyteller from that era who spent time on both sides of the border - Elofson examines the lives of cowboys and ranch owners, looking closely at the prevalence of drunkenness, prostitution, gunplay, rustling, and vigilante justice in both Canada and the USA.” - from the dj.

104 ENDICOTT, Stephen Lyon. Bienfait : The Saskatchewan Miners' Struggle of '31. Signed copy
University of Toronto Press, Toronto , 2002, ISBN:0802084524 
ENDICOTT, Stephen Lyon. Bienfait : The Saskatchewan Miners' Struggle of '31. Toronto : University of Toronto Press, (2002). First Edition. Pp [i]-xi,(1),[1]-180,+ 22 pp. plates. Index. 8vo, illustrated blue card covers. "Against all odds, the miners of Bienfait, Saskatchewan attempted, in 1931, to change their miserable situation by organizing a union. Stephen Endicott focuses on the miners' tumultuous thirty-day strike to explore the social consequences of capitalist restructuring during the Great Depression. The miners' bid to gain union recognition with the aid of the Workers' Unity League of Canada failed, and Endicott's in?depth examination of the key factors and players attempts to explain why it did so, and why a similar union drive a decade later eventually succeeded. Based on a large number of both oral and written primary resources, Bienfait offers a new interpretation of the role of the corporations, the government, the courts and the police and in the process demonstrates how a militant union leadership helped the workers gain the strength and unity of purpose to challenge the powers of wealth and deep-seated prejudice. Endicott opens a new chapter in the history of Canadian labour relations which reveals much about Canadians and Canadian society during the Depression. Stephen Lyon Endicott is a Senior Scholar (retired) in History, the School of Arts and Letters, the Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies, York University." from the first page.

Joyce Fieguth, née Epp (b. 1925, Rosthern, Saskatchewan).

"As a six-week-old baby, Joyce Epp and her somewhat naive young parents Isaac and Sarah travelled by horse and wagon, with a cow ties behind and a few dishes and doilies packed carefully away, to being a new life of homesteading north of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. They and the members of their extended family who also made the trek had almost nothing: no income, and few material possessions.

Yet despite poverty and challenges, their life was a rich and happy one. Flour Sacks and Binder Twine tells the story of pioneering in the 1920s and 30s in a community where everything was made out of or held together by bleached flour sacks and an abundance of binder twine, reinforced by great measures of family love and faith in God." - from the rear cover.

"An early nineteenth-century journal of an astonishing voyage from Montreal to the Columbia River via Cape Horn, including descriptions of the court of King Tamehamema of Hawaii and the founding of Fort Astoria." front of dj.

"By 1811 the American fur trade, under the aegis of John Jacob Astor, had burgeoned into a tremendous enterprise. One of Astor's associates was Montreal-born Canadian, Gabriel Franchère.

Franchère kept a diary of one of the most extraordinary voyages ever experienced. Leaving Montreal in 1811, he arrived in New York, where he and a group of other young Americans and Canadian shipped out on the American vessel Tonquin , bound for the Pacific Northwest. The thrilling danger-packed voyage around Cape Horn to the rugged Pacific Coast included a stop-over in Hawaii, where the voyagers were royally entertained at the court of King Tamehamema.

Franchère provides us with colorful descriptions of the founding of Fort Astoria at the mouth of the Columbia River and its subsequent surrender to the British forces during the War of 1812.

The book ends with an account of the overland return to Montreal - a journey as intrepid and dramatic as the sea voyage out." - from dj flaps.
