187 BORNEMAN, Walter R. Alaska : Saga of a Bold Land : From Russian Fur Traders to the Gold Rush, Extraordinary Railroads, World War II, the Oil Boom, and the Fight over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Perennial, New York, 2004, 
BORNEMAN, Walter R.

(New York): Perennial, (2004). First Paperback Printing. Pp (14),[xi]-xx,(4),3-608,( 6). Maps in text. 8vo, photo-illustrated paperback. "The history of Alaska is filled with stories of new land and new riches - and ever present are new people with competing views over how the valuable resources should be used: Russians exploiting a fur empire; explorers checking rival advances; prospectors stampeding to the clarion call of 'Gold!'; soldiers battling out adecisive chapter in world war; oil wildcatters looking for a different kin d of mineral wealth; and always at the core of these disputes is the question of how the land is to be used and by whom. While some want Alaska to remain static, others are in the vanguard of change. Alaska: Saga of a Bold Land shows that there are no easy answers on either side and that Alaska willalways be crossing the next frontier." - rear cover. Very good. 12.50

BREYNAT, Gabriel, Mgr. The Flying Bishop : Fifty Years in the Canadian Far North. L.: Burns and Oates, (1955). First Printing. Pp. (i)-xii,(1)-288, + 8 p. of plates. 8vo, blue cloth with black lettering to spine. Arctic Bibliography 38988 for US edition. (See also 37212). "The late Archbishop Breynat, who died while this English edition of his book was being prepared, had a unique and world-wide reputation while he lived. For fifty years a missionary - forty of them a bishop- in the Canadian Far North, he was the first to appreciate the value of air travel in administering a "diocese" of hundreds of thousands of square miles. Here "The Flying Bishop" - the title withwhich he was saluted by the journalistic world - tells the story of his lo ng and eventful life, from his first vocation to the mission-field [... told] with delightful modesty and not a little sly humour. Here we have first-hand descriptions of the way to evangelise the Indians, of the founding of new missions in the most inaccessible places, of the crudities and odditiesof the Eskimo way of life on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. The author was also in a position to give the authentic facts concerning the tragic fate of Fr. Rouvière and Fr. Le Roux, and the notorious trial of their murderersin 1917. He tells us, too, of his audiences with the great, with Sir Wilfr id Laurier and no fewer than four Popes, of the surprising knowledgeableness of Pius XI in the matter of diesel engines, and of the encouragement he received from both him and Pius XII. Apart from its value as a missionary record, this book has great general interest as illustrating the vast changesthat have come over the Canadian North-West [...]." - from the dust-jacket . "Popular account of the writer's (an Oblate) experiences at the Fond-du-Lac on Lake Athabaska 1892-1902; his duties and travels (since 1929 by aircraft) as bishop in Yukon Territory and Mackenzie District. Development of Catholic missions is recounted, natives, in particular Indians of the Mackenzie and Eskimos of the Coppermine region, are characterized." - AB. As well as aircraft, this includes accounts of watery travel by canoe, steamer, &c.Fine in near fine dj. 30.00
