WHITEHEAD, Ruth Holmes and Germain LAKSI (Jerry LONECLOUD). Tracking Doctor Lonecloud : Showman to Legend Keeper. Fredericton : Goose Lane Editions / Nova Scotia Museum, 2002. First Printing. Pp. (8),9-183,(1). With 32 b&w photos in the text as well as reproductions of documents, and other illustrations. 8vo, illustrated brown cardcovers.

Germain Laksi, aka Jerry Lonecloud.

"Germain Laksi, trained in herbal medicine by his Mi'kmaw family, found adventure in the American medicine shows of the 1880s. He performed as Doctor Lonecloud in Healey and Bigelow's Kickapoo Indian Medicine Company, Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, and his own Kiowa Medicine Show, for which he made the medicines.

After he returned to Nova Scotia, Lonecloud worked as a guide and sold his herbal remedies. During his twenty-year friendship with harry Piers, curator of the of Nova Scotia Provincial Museum, he collected artifacts and specimens for the musem and shared his knowledge of Mi'kmaw culture. Between 1923 and 1929, he gave interviews to journalist Clara Dennis. In the 1990s, these interviews, recorded in Dennis's notebooks came to the attention of Ruth Holmes Whitehead.

Tracking Doctor Lonecloud includes Lonecloud's life story in his own words - the earliest known Mi'kmaw autobiography. This memoir, painstakingly transcribed by Whitehead and augmented by her research, revels both the showman and the carrier of Mi'kmaw legends. " - from the rear cover.

Robert Harold Worthen (b. May 1, 1892 in Shelburne, N.S. , grew up in West Bacaro, -d. 1976). "Robert Worthen was one of the last of the old-time Nova Scotia sea captains who regarded their ships as living, vibrant personalities and who saw the challenge of the sea as the highest adventure. He began his adventure as a boy in sail, inevitably transferring his affections to steam, and ending his career as a top marine executive of the Canadian National Railways. It was a career that reflected the struggles — and the joys — of Coasting Captains 'all along shore.' For Love of the Sea is a sensitive account ol a man and his ships during the first fifty years of this century. While still a Cabin Boy he sailed with a "Jonah" on a schooner; World War I puthim on a 'wood boat' instead of a destroyer; he saluted Lindbergh and the Spirit of St. Louis from the bridge of a steamer and quelled a mob on a palatial yacht. He tells the inside story of the trauma of the M.V. Bluenose. [the ferry between Yarmouth and Bar Harbor] And all that the sea has taughthim culminates in an unusual rescue. For Love of the Sea is a book of reco llections for many Nova Scotians; illustrated with numerous photographs, itwill interest anyone who savours the romance of ships and the sea.
