BAUER, Nancy. Samara the Wholehearted. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : Goose Lane, (1991). First Edition. Pp (6),7-163,(1). 8vo, art-illustrated yellow cardcovers, with purple lettering to spine.

Cover art : Peter Bell's "Return to the Day Haunt of the Siffleur Montagne".

Nancy Bauer, née Luke (b. July 7, 1934 (b. Chelmsford, Massachusetts) Canadian writer and editor and longtime resident of New Brunswick.

This is her fourth novel.

"Nancy Bauer has the ability to create some of the most memorable female characters in contemporary literature. For Samara the Wholehearted, she has written a coming-of-age story, centred around Samara, an imaginative young woman whose maturity is marked by an impulsive examinatiion of the inner life.

A profoundly religious writer with a lively interest in Eastern spirituality, Bauer transports her readers in this novel to the slightly tilted world of Summerland, a communal summer retreat. Here she introduces Samara, her perpetually adolescent half-brother Fred, a disabled genius named Marty and a host of off-beat characters who form an unusual extended family in a world filled with marvel. Mixing rarefied prose with the traditional techniques of story-telling and postmodern innovation, Bauer produces a novel which is both technically adept and intensely memorable.

Part I. Summerland
Part II. Another Place.
Part III. Winterland.

Spine sunned as usual with this title, else very good. Signed, with Inscription in March '82, by the author. 20.00

Nancy Bauer, née Luke (b. July 7, 1934 (b. Chelmsford, Massachusetts) Canadian writer and editor and longtime resident of New Brunswick.

This is her second novel.

"To say that this is a novel about middle age is to belie the vivacity and freshness of Nancy Bauer's imagination. Wise-Ears is full of surprises. Sophie Aspinwall is 58 years old and she doesn't know what she wants to do with the rest of her life. She makes plans, she dreams dreams. Few of them come true. In a sense, however, they all come true, because Sophie comes to terms with them and with herself. This is a genial book, inventive, real, true and very funny." - the rear.

Annamarie L. Beckel (b. central Ohio) . This was her first novel. "All Gone Widdun is a work of fiction. Most of the major events in the novel are based on accounts in James P. Howley's classic, The Beothucks oe Red Indians [...], and Ingeborg Marshall's A History and Ethnography of the Beothuk [...]. Nearly all the named characters-with a few notable exceptions - were real people. Their personalities have been fictionalized. How they felt about themselves, each other and what happened is a matter of conjecture.

Copies of Shanawdithit's drawings are placed at appropriate points in the narrative. " from the foreword.

Pp (6),vii-xliii,(1),1-212,+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, red cloth, silver lettering to fron t board and spine. Canadian Plains Studies, no. 18. 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).
