Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "A seagoing book of the first order is this personalrecord of the remarkable voyage in 1928 of the last of America's square-ri gged ships. Roland Barker, aged 22, signs on as third mate; the moment he steps aboard he becomes the impersonal 'mister,' subject to the traditional iron discipline of a stern captain, James P. narler. This is a tough assignment, for Captain Barker is Roland's own father. During the whole eight months' voyage from New York to Hawaii and back by way of Seattle and the Panama Canal, this fact never is allowed to enter into the relationship betweenthird mate and captain, but it creates its tensions for the son with other members of the crew. The description of the voyage, of the sailors and the ports of call, but particularly the intimate account of life aboard a grea t seagoing sailing vessel, evokes a wonderful way of life that has gone forever." - from the dustjacket.

31 BARR, James, Capt. Ferry Across the Harbor : The story of the North Vancouver Ferries. First Edition in dustjacket.

BARR, James, Capt. Ferry Across the Harbor [dustjacket adds subtitle : The story of the North Vancouver Ferries]. Vancouver : Mitchell Press Limited, (1969). First Edition. Pp (5),vi-xi,(1),1-71,(1). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth, white lettering to front, plain spine. "From early morning until longafter midnight, in weather fair and foul, the North Van ferries churned th e waters of Burrard Inlet to link the north and south shores of the Port ofVancouver. At times they slipped over the dancing, sunlit, sheltered water s while passengers "took the air" before burying themselves in factories oroffice buildings for their daily duties. At other times they moved quickly but cautiously through fog that cut visibility to zero, then groped for th e ferry slip leads that would guide them to a brief docking to discharge and reload. Shuttling incessantly across the main traffic of the harbor in the path of mighty freighters that on miscalculation could easily have destroyed anyone of them, the ferries were guided skilfully and there was no instance of disaster by collision or any other cause. The skyline on the south side changed from forest to buildings, the port became world famous. Ships of the seven seas with strange flags and exotic ports of origin and destination came and went in an increasing stream; but oblivious to these more colorful momentary companions the faithful ferries went on ploddingly in unfailing, seamanlike performance of their nautical routines. Yet they were not without their moments and their stories, as witness this volume of recollections." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction; The early history; The Second Narrows Bridge; The years without a bridge; The night run; Fog; Accidents and a near miss; The passengers; The administration; Personnel; The Second Narrows Bridge replaced; The war years; The post-war period; The last tenyears.

Jessie Louise Beattie, (b. October 2, 1896, Blair, Ontario - d. October 5. 1985, Hamilton, Ont.).

"'Come then, sign on with me and let us begin our journey.' So says Captain Charles C. Dixon [born in Windsor, Nova Scotia] in his introduction to this stirring and legendlike biography of his life and adventures on the seven seas. Author Jessie L. Beattie signs us on, and the trip, like Captain Dixon's life, circles the globe and back again.

Here is a man who went to sea at the age of nine months with his Capain father and spent the next four years there. here is a man who spent the better part of the rest of his life there.

In The Last of the Windjammers, Volume II, Basil Lubbock wrote: 'Among the younger commanders one of the most interesting characters was Capatin C.C. Dixon. It would be hard to find Dixon's equal. All who sailed with him became his devoted admirers, and .... the boys in the half-deck worshipped him as their hero.' Here is a story of the sea and the crews that sailed them, of remote islands and exotic ports visited in the early 1900s."" - from the dj.
