"Finding the story of Early Canadian letters fascinating, partly because of his own boyhood spent on a frontier range in southeastern Alberta, Wilfred Eggleston here considers waht spiritual climate and what cultural atmosphere had to be evolved by migrants of the old societies to North America before a sphisticated and mature product such as belles lettres could be expected in this country. Mr. Eggleston re-examines the mqain events of Canadian letters in the Frontier days, as well as in the generations immediately following. While he finds those social conditions which are friendly to creative writing slow in emerging, he comes to the conclusion that the material potentials for a great literary era in Canada are likely to be realized soon. In a final chapter he discusses how far we have comein accumulating the cultural and spiritual soil likely to feed a really br illiant harvest of native letters." from the dj flap. Chapters : 1.

“In Frontier Cattle Ranching in the Land and Times of Charlie Russell, Warren Elofson debunks the myth of the American "wild west" and the Canadian "mild west" by demonstrating that cattlemen on both sides of the forty-ninth parallel shared a common experience. Focusing on Montana, Southern Alberta, Southern Saskatchewan, and the well-known figure of Charlie Russell - an artist and storyteller from that era who spent time on both sides of the border - Elofson examines the lives of cowboys and ranch owners, looking closely at the prevalence of drunkenness, prostitution, gunplay, rustling, and vigilante justice in both Canada and the USA.” - from the dj.

186 ENDICOTT, Marina. Close to Hugh. A novel. First Edition in dustjacket.
Doubleday Canada, 2015, ISBN:9780385678605 
ENDICOTT, Marina. Close to Hugh. A novel. [Toronto] : Doubleday Canada, (2015). First Printing. Pp. (8),[3]-454,(4). 8vo, dark blue cloth spine with mustard yellow paper-covered boards, metallic copper lettering to spine. Longlisted for the 2015 Giller Prize. "''Close to Hugh' takes an exuberantly existential look at youth and age, art and life, love and death over one week in the world of gallery owner Hugh Argylle. On Monday, a fall from a ladder leaves Hugh with a fractured vision of the pain -- dying parents, shaky marriages, failure of every kind -- suffered by those close to him. His friends are one missed ladder-rung from going under emotionally, physically, and financially. Somebody's got to fix them all. And it probably has to be Hugh. Meanwhile, beneath the adult orbit, bright young lives are taking form: the sons and daughters of Hugh's friends are about to graduate from high school and already floating away from the gravitational bonds of their parents. As complicated bonds form a break in texts and ticks on multiplying media, the desires, terrors, and revelations of adolescence are mirrored in the second adolescence of the adults. With insight and mastery, Endicott creates surprising parallel worlds. Her ear for the cadences and concerns of two generations gives us both sets of friends on the cusp of reinvention. And as always in Endicott's multi-layered fiction, below the surface tragicomedy lies something profound: a rare and rich perspective on what it means to fall and rise and fall again -- and what in the end we owe to those we love." - from the dustjacket.

Shortlisted for the 2011 Governer-General's Award for English-language fiction. Longlisted for the 2011 Giller Prize. "In 'The Little Shadows', we follow the lives of the threeAvery sisters ('The Belle Auroras', as they become known on the stage): Au rora, the eldest and most conventionally beautiful; thoughtful Clover, a year younger; and headstrong spirte Bella, the youngest. The girls, overseen by their fond but barely coping Mama, set out to make their living as a singing act after the untimely death of their schoolteacher father. The sisters begin with little in their favour besides youth and hope, but Marina Endicott's genius is to show how each one slowly and steadily evolves into a unique and accomplished artist while navigating her way to adulthood among a cast of extraordinary charmers, charlatans, eccentrics, impresarios, and once in a rare while, a bright star with transcendent gifts." - from the dustjacket.

Some are fantastic tall tales in which a bull turns into a lawyer, or a lonely Alberta cow's ghost longs for Quebec, or Ulysses comes back to Ithaca Corner, Ontario. Ferron writes metaphysical fables, sketches of urban life, political satire, portraits of men and women in all walks of life, and wry comedies, with great originality and a profound sympathy for the human condition.
