BIRD, Will R. Despite the Distance. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, (1961). First Edition. Pp. (6),[1]-280,(2). 8vo, white cloth with gilt lettering to spine. The final volume in Bird's fictional trilogy that began with "Here Stays Good Yorkshire", and followed "Tristram's Salvation". "Although TristramCrabtree's wife, and furious relatives believed be had deserted tbemand Cu mberland County, Nova Scotia, to sail south for Boston, they would have been even More enraged had they known that Tristram was in fact becoming enamoured of Thora Gidney on the Merry Minx bound for Hull in'Yorkshire. From this point the reader follows the proud, impulsive, strong-willed Tristram inhis wanderings to Carolina, Philadelphia, Halifax, and back to Cumberland. Adventurers is his constant companion. In addition he is surrounded by a v ariety of intriguing and colourful characters—the Reverend (but alcoholic) Meracious Admore, Sleepy Jones the crooked innkeeper, Tim and Priscilla Tooler who prove to be friends in need, Sam Gidney whose heartbreak is mistaken for sullenness, Naomi Lewell who loved not wisely but too well and too often. But throughout his adventures. Tristram's conscience nags im, and the central theme of this book is what happens when he takes the advice ot the Rev. Meracious Admore, 'Get right with the people you have wronged', and returns to Cumberland County. As Tristram, now the peniteiient sinner seekingforgiyeness, makes his pilgrimage around his home district, the reader is given fascinating and sometimes shocking glimpses into the attitudes of supposedly devout Christians. Finally Tristram discovers the path to a peace of mind that has so long eluded him. Master story-telier Will R.Bird wraps his tale in authentic Maritime History, and gives an interesting picture of Halifax and the Cumberland dictrict during the American Revolution. Tritram's story has some basis in iact, and shows why a number of leading Yorkshire families left the Cumberland area for unknown holdings in what is now Ontario. Despite the Distance is the final volume of a trilogy about a group of Yorkshiremen who settled in the Cumberland district of Nova Scotia." - from the dj flaps.

Douglas & McIntyre, Vancouver, 2001, ISBN:1550548727 
(BLACKWOOD, David). GOUGH, William. David Blackwood : Master Printmaker. With an appreciation by Annie Proulx. Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, (2001). First Printing. Pp. (6),[vii]-xiii,(1),1-178. Beautifully illustrated in colour with 141 examples of Blackwood's etchings. Oblong 4to, grey cloth, silver titles to spine. "David Blackwood was born in 1941 in Wesleyville, Newfoundland, into a family with a long seafaring tradition. His great-grandfather, Ned Bishop, was a captain; his grandfather, Captain Albert Blackwood, was in command o fthe S.S. Imogene, and his father, Edward, was a skipper in the fisheries. David Blackwood began drawing and painting as a boy, but it was not until the 1960s, as a student at the Ontario College of Art, thathe began to demonstrate his skill with the etching process. Today, he is r ecognized internationally as a master printmaker, and his work appears in collections all over the world. This book brings togehter 141 of the artist's most evocative etchings in a splendidly produced celebration of his work.Newfoundland in the early 1940s had few roads, little electricity and more in common with the years behind than the years ahead. People were united b y their love for the sea and their total dependence upon it, and community ties ran deep. Blackwood's art is rooted in the oral narrative tradition and strong social values of his birthplace. Whether depicting the harsh griefof a death on the ice, the exhilaration caused by a ship's safe return, a woman's quiet vigil at a window, the heartbreaking relocation of an island home, or the magic of mummering during the twelve days of Christmas, his etchings are filled with story, drama, and the deepest of connections to a place and a people." - from the dustjacket.
