161 HARRIS, R.V. Oak Island Mystery. Second Edition, Third Printing, in dustjacket.
Ryerson Press, Toronto, 1973, ISBN:0770001351 
HARRIS, R.V. The Oak Island Mystery. Toronto : The Ryerson Press, (1973). Second Edition, Third Printing. Pp (9),x-xi,(1),1-209,(3), frontispiece + 10pages of photos. 8vo, grey mottled boards, gilt lettering to spine. With b ibliography and index. "Since 1795, when a Nova Scotia farmboy chanced uponwhat he suspected was the location of buried pirate treasure, fortune hunt ers from all over the world have risked their lives and savings in attemptsto recover whatever may be buried on this small island on Mahone Bay. And yet, to this day, all attempts have been futile. Dozens of shafts and tunnels have been dug, sophisticated drilling and pumping equipment has been specially designed and put into use, large and successful construction and mining companies have subsidized one expedition after another. But strangely enough, the mystery of Oak Island continues to defy experts and amateurs alike. What is buried beneath Oak Island? Captain Kidd's bounty? The Holy Grail? Inca Gold? The treasures of the lost civilization of Atlantis? Nobody knows.... yet. In 1958, when Reginald Harris completed the first edition of 'The Oak Island Mystery', he had no idea of the impact the book would have on this 170-year treasure hunt. With the revision of the bok in 1967, Harrisbecame the focal point of interest in the subject. The latest attempt at s olving the mystery, headed by Daniel Blankenship and financed by a new syndicate, had just gotten under way and is the last expedition described in this book." -from the dustjacket.

A fictional account of German emigration to Nova Scotia in the 1750s. "Call of a Distant Shore follows Elisabeth Heber and her family as they struggle under the rule of a tyrannical Prince in 1750s Germany and their subsequent journey to Nova Scotia. Unmarried, pregnant, and only sixteen years old, Elisabeth faces emigration with her family with one goal—to find her lover, Peter, who had abandoned her months before when his own family emigrated. When her secret is revealed, she weds the village doctor, yet swears to never consummate the marriage. As she boards the Snow Pearl to her newhomeland, all her hopes are pinned on finding Peter and changing the circu mstances of her life. Elisabeth and her family scrape to survive within theconfines of the palisade in Dartmouth amid threats of Indian attacks and s tarvation. Like many others, they labour to pay off their passage debts. For two years they struggle, then follow the colony to Lunenburg in the vain hope that it will be better. Misfortune follows the colony as they find themselves no better off as heavy rains spread dysentery and dampen their spirits amid discontent and lies. But time does not stand still for Elisabeth as she stubbornly holds on to a deep-seated love, and almost lets her own life slip through her fingers." - from the back cover. Very good.
