"• The author presents in this book an up-to-date and stimulating account of the long and well-sustained farmer struggle for the most satisfactory co-operative method of marketing our wheat and other farm produce. Thiis is coupled with the story of securing appropriate legislation and amendments, designed to protect the producer from the abuses and practices more orless inherent in the warehousing, transporting and handling of grain. • Th e principle of co-operation is amongst the most important of the great forces which are striving for the shaping of our civilization to-day. As a principle it is opposed to the idea ot the "survival of the fittest." Even whenthe system which glorified competition was in its heydey, many men and wom en turned in self-protection to another way of living, and in the mid-nineteenth century laid the foundations of a social and economic order m which co-operation was to be dominant. Everybody who is interested in this aspect of the ever-widening co-operative movement, will find "New Breaking" stimulating reading. • The story of the organised rural activities dating back tosmall beginnings at the turn of the century, are here set forth in consecu tive order, and in a manner designed to be fair and just to all parties concerned. Mr. Boyd has written an interesting, informative and readable book.• An appreciative Foreword is contributed by the Hon. W. R. Motherwell. " - from the dj.

"Between 1896 and 1914, the Canadian government carried out a vigorous programme in central Europe, Britain, and the United States to persuade people to immigrate to the Canadian west, "The Last Best West." Hundreds of thousands of prospective settlers from diverse and distinctive ethnic backgrounds responded, leading to an extraordinary mass migration which changed the face of Canada. The great campaign to populate the west is presented here by Jean Bruce, in a compelling and moving selection of more than 190 photographs of the period, together with short related texts. Her superb pictorial history gives a fine sense of scope and perspective to this vital period in the growth of Canada. We see all the paraphernalia of the government advertising campaign, the journey from the settlers' homelands, the first prairie homesteads, the development of western cities and industries and, above all, the people whose lives transformed - and were transformed by - the Canadian west." - the front dj flap.
