Now, twenty veterans of the league are gathering for a reunion in the Battlefords, for induction into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame. But all is not peaceful under the prairie sky.

Kate valiantly tries not to interfere in the police investigation which ensues but, as she talks to former team members, she finds that questions from the past demand answers.

HAY, Elizabeth. Alone in the Classroom : A novel . (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (8),[1]-306,(6). 8vo, green cloth with silver titles to spine. "In a small prairie school in 1929, Connie Floodhelps a backward student, Michael Graces, learn how to read. Observing the m and darkening their lives is the principal, Parley Burns, whose strange behaviour culminates in an attack so disturbing its repercussions continue to the present day. Connie's niece, Anne, tells the story. Impelled by curiosity about her dynamic, adventurous aunt and her more conventional mother, she revisits Connie's past and her mother's broken childhood. In the process, she unravels the enigma of Parley Burns and the mysterious (and unrelated) deaths of two young girls. As the novel moves deeper into their lives, the triangle of principal, teacher, student opens out into other emotional triangles -- aunt, niece, lover; mother, daughter, granddaughter -- until a sudden, capsizing love thrusts Anne herself into a newly independent life,.This spellbinding tale -- set in Saskatchewan and the Ottawa Valley -- cro sses generations and cuts to the bone. It probes the roots of obsessive love and hate, how the hurts and desires of childhood persist and are passed on as if in the blood. It lays bare the urgency of discovering what we were never told about the past. And it celebrates the process of becoming who weare in a world full of startling connections that lie just out of sight." - from the dust jacket. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 20.00

University of British Columbia Press, Vancouver, 1983, 1983 0774801948 / 9780774801942 
HAYDEN, Michael. Seeking a Balance : The University of Saskatchewan 1907-1982. Vancouver : University of British Columbia Press, (1983). First Edition. Pp (8),[ix]-xix,(1),[1]--379,(1) + 20 pages of photos, &c. 8vo, light gey cloth, silver lettering to spine.

"Historian Michael Hayden suggests that the 75th anniversary of the University of Saskatchewan is not only an apprpriate but also a necessary time to write its history - to record the development of a unique institution before its uniqueness disappears completely without anyone appreciating what it is. In focussing on this them, Hayden offers an absorbing hostory of the university which conveys a strong sense of the personalities, issues, and events which shaped its distinctive character.

The book beginsins with the founding of the university in 1907 by men such as Walter Murray, its first' president, who devised an original institution: a university that was state supported but not state controlled, with room for all knowledge but dedicated to service to the state. The university was established and functioned for many years as the only source of post-secondary education in the province. While offering a traditional curriculum, it also included a wide range of professional, technical and vocational courses as part of its commitment to serve the needs of the surrounding, mainly agricultural, community. As Hayden points out, of the original aims of the university - "one, independent, and serving" - serving is the only aim which remains intact, and that too is endangered.

Seeking a Balance makes an important, and colourful, contribution to regional history and to the history of education in Canada. In addressing issues of concern to many North American university communities it also makes a significant statement about the current crisis in higher education." - from the dj.

138 HEATH, Terrence AF 22 Truth & Other Stories. First Edition, Hardcover in dustjacket

HEATH, Terrence. The Truth & Other Stories. Toronto : (House of Anansi Press), 1972. First Edition. Pp. (8),1-69,(3). 8vo, red cloth, black lettering to spine. AF 22. Terrence George Heath (b. August 25, 1936., Regina, Saskatchewan), poet, scholar, art curator. "In The Truth Terrence Heath has written a book of uncompromising honesty. The short unadorned pices that comprise it are evocative as poems, blunt as prose, though they belong properly toneither catagory but to a new one of the author's own invention. Sometimes shockingly funny, often brutal and occasionally terrifying, the glimpses o f Canadian Prairie life they afford us are unlike any we ever had before. This is the W.O. Mitchell territory revisited with a vision bleak as John Newlove's, an unprecedented eye for detail, and rarely, a lyricism all the more fragile for its harsh setting." - rear panel of dj. "The Frogs", "The Mother", "The Brown Dog", "The Strip", "The Baesement", "The Knock-out", "TheTongue", "The Chinaman", "The Erection", "The Post", "The Strap", "The Wit ch", "The Shingle Arrow Gun", "The Hunters", "The Balloons", "The Collection", "The Voice", "The Hard", "The Swimming Trunks", "The Icehouse", "The Filling", "The Aunt", "The Father", "The Rinkhut", "The Caretaker", "The Bicycle", "The Dogfight", "The Soldier", "The Sunday School Lesson", "The Truants", "The Fart", "The Strawberries", "The Mountie", "The Fight", "The Tail", "The Truth", "The Police", "The Theologue", "The Honeywagon", "The Coach", "The Ink", "The Team", and "The Feel".
