BJARNASON, J. Magnus. Errand Boy in the Mooseland Hills. [Front cover adds:"Stories from Nova Scotia's Forgotten Icelandic Settlement"].Translated by Borga Jakobson. Halifax: Formac Publishing Company Limited, (2001). Pp. (6 ),[7]-184. 8vo, blue ill. card covers. " -from the front cover. "When a group of Icelanders were encouraged to settle in Nova Scotia in 1875, they were given land in a remote forested area east of Dartmouth, known as Mooseland Hills. Young Magnus Bjarnson was one of those who came with his family. Times were hard and although he was just a boy, he was sent to work for households in the area, doing chores and running errands. Bjarnasson returned to these experiences in his writing: the finely crafted chapters of this book describe unforgettable characters and events from this time. In one story, the larger-than-life Hromundar kidnaps the local doctor and rows him through a raging sea to his island home hoping to save the life of his ailing wife. In another, a Mr Balfour is too sick to finish his harvest but he finds that at night, while everyone is asleep, his crops are taken in. Perhaps it is Eyvindur, the young Icelander who owes Balfour a debt of gratitude. During this time Young Magnus finds himself enlisted by a neighbour, Mabel McIsaac, to try to learn the identity of an Icelandic man who died in her care, whose grave she visits every day. These compelling portraits of rural life in the late nineteenth century are unknown to English language readers.now, through this translation by Manitoba author Borga Jakobson, readers c an enjoy the remarkably fresh writing of Magnus Bjarnason." - from the rearcover.

Watters p.250, Rhodenizer p.805, Spadoni & Donnelly 1537. Patricia Anne Blondal (née Jenkins, December 12, 1926., Souris, Manitoba - November, 1959). A novel set in the prairie town of Mouse Bluffs, Manitoba. "Haunted in tone, stamped with originality, imagination, and genuine drive. Patricia Blondal's A Candle to Light the Sun is a mesmerising work of fiction, its raw candour striking with the impact of cold metal on exposed nerves. Characters are drawn with meticulous accuracy, the atmosphere crackles with dramatic intensity, and the themes - major and minor- are woven together in a tightly knit fabric of magical prose. [...] A no vel of growth, of deprivation, of compassion, cruelty, courage and weakness, it is filled with irrepressible energy and unopposable vision." - from rear cover of 1976 NCL edition. High praise on the jacket from Desmond Pacey,Hugh Garner, Hugh MacLennan, Margaret Laurence, Gabrielle Roy, and Irving Layton. Very good in very good nicked, edgeworn dustjacket. 35.00
