Pp (4),v-viii,(2),1-272,(6) + 16-page central section of b&w photos. 8vo, brown cloth, dark blue lettering to spine. Map end-papers. O'Dea 2970. "When Mr. J. Harry Smith retired from the management of the Press Bureau of the C.P.R., which he originally organized, his chiefdesire was to go to Newfoundland and write a book about it. Born in Bristo l, England, a seaport that had sent many an adventurer to the island colony, it was natural that he should also feel it in his bones. What he knew casually, he now wanted to know intimately. And so he took a holiday. Wandering at his leisure, he covered much of the accessible coast, wherever there were eople, by train, motor car, boat, and on foot; and always with notebookand camera. He had time to gaze and time to talk, and the result of it all is this very readable book. There is a good deal of history mixed up with his story, for there is a lot of history about the Island itself. It helps explain the Island and the people. It is a reticent land. Life there has never been easy, and few Islanders have ever been boastful or flamboyant. Butto those who tarry and are friendly Newfoundland yields its deep friendshi p, and something of its secret. Newfoundland Holiday is a necessary book. It is a covered bridge to a deep understanding of our newest province. It reveals the rich contribution that the Island is prepared to make to our common national life. And it is a delight to read, full of enchantment, taies of heroism, the charm of old buildings, and the never-ending surprises of the folkways of the people themselves. " - from the dust jacket.

38 WELLS, Janice MOORES, Frank) Frank Moores : The Time of His Life. First Edition in dustjacket, Signed byauthor
Key Porter Books, Toronto, 2008, ISBN:9781552637869 
WELLS, Janice. Frank Moores : The Time of His Life. (Toronto) : Key Porter Books, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-302,(2),+ 16 pp plates. 8vo, blackcloth, pale blue lettering to spine. Janice Wells (b. 1948). Frank Duff Mo ores (b. February 18, 1933, Carbonear, Newfoundland – d. July 10, 2005, Perth, Ontario) served as the second Premier of Newfoundland. "Thirty-five year old Frank Moores, retired millionaire, woman-loving, scotch-drinking sportsman had never been to a political meeting when he announced his candidacyas a Newfoundland Member of Parliament in 1968. Within two years he was na tional leader of the Progressive Conservative Party, and taking on the supreme demagogue Joey Smallwood for the job of premier of Newfoundland. Never motivated by power or money, Moores was a likable, unlikely politician, andthe people of Newfoundland were ready for a revolution. He also proved to be a brilliant organizer and strategist. Moores won the popular vote in theprovincial election of October 1971 but the number of seats was tied, with one independent. For three months Smallwood clung to power amidst constitu tional wrangling, bribery, intrigue and adultery, but Moores triumphed. He immediately called another election and won a substantial majority. In an administration beleaguered with controversy, he introduced sweeping legislative reforms as a powerful Ottawa lobbyist in the Mulroney years. Wiith hours of tape from Moores, Janice Wells documents the politician?s opinions andinsights into a lifetime of affairs of the nation and the heart; his side of the Airbus story; the power deal he had with Rene Levesque that was scuttled by Brian Peckford; and the ten-year estrangement from Brian Mulroney. Augmented by interviews with Moores? family, friends and colleagues, readers are taken on a fascinating journey as a privileged outport boy in pre-Confederation Newfoundland finds his way to the seats of government, the boardrooms of power, the spotlight of scandal, and the love of living that created the legacy and legend of Frank Moores."
