141 BIRD, Will R. These are the Maritimes. 2nd Printing in dustjacket
Ryerson Press, Toronto, 1964,

"This is a different sort of travel book. It does not pretend to list all there is to be found in the Maritimes but recounts the adventures of the author as he motored along the coast, through forested i nland, in and out of delightful valleys, along pleasant vistas of farm lands and sleepy little rivers. He interviewed a variety of residents in the areas, learned their philosophy of life, listened to their favourite stories,the pride they have in their ancestry and countryside, opinions they hold about the world at large, and the things that matter in their own small spheres. The result is a narrative that breathes and throbs with the good lifeengendered in small communities, whether they be inland or beside the sea. Legends galore give colour to the history of this beautiful countryside. T he visitor who travels with this book as a guide will acquire he full flavour of Canada's "down-east," where salty little villages are spaced in unexpected places along a jigsaw coastline, where mellowed inland clearings offer drowsy summer afternoons and wild berries for the hiker, where there are camp sites that invite, where memories have gathered giving depth and meaning to the lives of a people who always have leisure to be kind." - from thedj. Tape ghosts to boards and endpapers, else very good in taped-down dust jacket. 18.00

Rusty Bittermann (b. 1951)

Winner of the "Democracy 250 Atlantic Book Award for Historical Writing", 2011 Atlantic Book Awards.

Sailor's Hope provides a moving account of a multi-faceted man, tracking his engagement with the extraordinary changes occurring in the Atlantic and Pacific Worlds in the decades after the American and French Revolutions. William Cooper was born in poverty in industrializing Scotland. Without any formal education, he worked his way up through the British merchant marine to the position of captain on voyages linking Britain with Iberia and North America.

When Cooper decided to establish a home for his family, he leased land in Prince Edward Island and named his farm "Sailor's Hope." For most of his adult life, Cooper played multiple roles - Prince Edward Island politician and legislative emissary to the UK, husband, father, farmer, merchant, miller, captain, boat builder, and amateur scientist. When his sons sought to establish themselves in life, the family built a boat and sailed from Prince Edward Island to California. Cooper, like many of his nineteenth-century contemporaries, inhabited a larger world than that encompassed by national boundaries.

Rusty Bittermann's lucid prose, skilful analysis of sometimes fragmentary sources, and well-chosen illustrations bring Cooper's world to life.” - from the back cover. ” - from the back cover.
