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.

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.

A volume in The Canadian Social History Series. "The Mountie may be one of Canada's best-known symbols, yet muchof the post-nineteenth century history of the Royal Canadian Mounted Polic e remains unexamined, particularly the years between 1914 and 1939, when the RCMP underwent enormous transformation. The nature of this transformationas it took place in Alberta and Saskatchewan -- where the Mounties have tr aditionally dominated policing -- is the focus of Steve Hewitt's 'Riding tothe Rescue'. During the period covered, the nineteenth-century model of th e RCMP evolved into a twentieth-century version, and the institution that emerged responded to a nation that was being transformed as well. Forces such as industrialization, mass immigration, urbanization, and political radicalism compelled the Mounties to look away from the frontier and toward a new era." -from the introductory preamble.

149 HILL, Douglas The Opening of the Canadian West : Where Strong Men Gathered. First American Edition in dustjacket.
John Day, 1967, 1967 
HILL, Douglas. The Opening of the Canadian West : Where Strong Men Gathered. New York : The John Day Company, (1967). First American Edition. Pp (6),vi-xii,1-[291],(1),+ 16 pages of b&w plates. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

Douglas Arthur Hill (b. April 6, 1935, Brandon, Manitoba – d. June 21, 2007, London, England).

"In the 1890s, when the western United States had been largely settled, restless spirits and landseekers began to turn toward the almost empty wilderness of Canada. Douglas Hill, a western Canadian born in Manitoba and raised in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, tells in The Opening of the Canadian West the story of how strong and determined men tamed these last reluctant wild lands to make Canada a truly transcontinental nation.

Even as late as 1857, England had to send the surveyor-explorer Captain Palliser to give them some idea of what lay between Ontario and the Pacific coast. And at the time of Canada's confederation in 1867, two small settlements were all of civilization that existed in this huge area.

Thirty-eight years later, the wilds had been conquered and settlers were pouring in. Unlike in the United States, the author points out, it was not the settlers who had opened up this land, but fur traders, fierce bands of half-breeds, missionaries, gun-toting miners, mounted police, revolutionaries and railroad builders - some legendary, many more than a little unsavory. The Canadian West was won by a special breed of individualist, such as Van Horne, the American railroader, who was never known to sleep, and the lone Mountie who would stand at the U.S. border and order American cowboys driving cattle north to keep their guns in their saddlebags while in Canada. They did.

Douglas Hill's account of the winning of the Canadian West - so different from our own West's history - is thoroughly researched and very readable, a long-overdue introduction to an exciting era." (from the dj).
