Illustrated with blac k and white artwork. 8vo, art-illustrated white card covers with black lettering to spine. "Les Français d'Amérique possédent leur littérature orale héritée des générations précédentes. Parmi ces récits transmis de boyuche à oreille en Amérique du Nord mais d'origine française, se situent les légendes, courtes récits auxquels les Anciens prêtaient foi. Elles ont toujours répondu à un certain besoin psychologique, celui d'assurer la sécurité. Au sein de cet univers m,erveilleux qui rejoint le sacré, nous voyons agir des humains qui, redoutant la solitude, étendent leur espace pour se rassurer; ils libèrent la nature, apprivoisant ou supprimant des esprits mauvais, utilisant pour c faire des moyens religieux ou magiques. Il faut cependant reconnaître qu'en 1985, c'est surtout une valeur patrimoniale qu'on attribue àces récits." - from rear. Includes: Terre-Neuve (le bâtiment du mauvais te mps: Un vaisseau fantôme erre au large du cap Saint-Georges), Île-du-Prince-Édouard (la chasse-galerie: des voyageurs se promènent dans les airs au-dessus de la mer), Nouvelle-Écosse (la cloche qui pleure: à Louisbourg, une cloche submergée sa lamente toujours), Nouveau-Brunswick (l'arbre de vie: des Acadiens trouvent un arbre merveilleux en 1755).

When he received the call at Leipzig he knew that he would be going forth in faith. Like Abraham he knew not where he was going, for he was unable to secure con crete information regarding the Edmonton Territory in which he was being asked to serve. He accepted the call knowing that he could get only as far as Winnipeg by rail. But the remaining nine hundred miles were a mystery to him. The very fact that he agreed to go with so little information showed the character of the man. Circumstances later brought him back to Winnipeg, and from then on he was to make a significant contribution not only to the West but to the whole of Canada, throughthe influence of the Presbyterian Church and Manitoba College. He was to b ecome one of the great Educationalists of the time. he time. He had a diversity of talents and James Robertson knew tha he was the ideal man for the special requirements of the great North-West. John M.

Allan Douglas English (b. November 8, 1949, in Winnipeg, Manitoba) was an air navigator in the Canadian Forces from 1971 to 1991.

A volume on the Canadian airmen that fought overseas during the First and Second World War, and the psychological toll that the operations and hardships which they faced took on Canada's aviators.

"In this insightful critique of the effectiveness of the Royal Canadian Air Force in preparing its aircrew for war, Allan English describes the development of a uniquely Canadian selection system that attempted to match the aptitudes of aircrew candidates to the duties they would perform and the evolution of the RCAF's training program from a haphazard system with enormous attrition to one that became the model for many modern systems. He also traces the development of aviation psychology and the treatment of psychological casualties of air combat. English pays particular attention to the controversy over diagnosing aviators as suffering from 'lack of moral fibre' and the RCAF's response, as well as the effect of morale and leadership on the psychological well-being of, and casualty rates among, Royal Air Force and RCAF bomber squadrons.

In exploring the human dimension of air warfare, an issue that has been widely overlooked in military literature, English demonstrates that personnel considerations have at least as much influence on the effectiveness of air forces as material and technological factors." - from the jacket.
