Canada is a country of extremes, and Charley knows all about pushing things to the limit. He goes dirt biking in New Brunswick; dives through old shipwrecks in the freezing waters off Tobermory; kayaks through the Manitoban wilderness and the swirling rapids of the Bloodwein River; takes a ride through the Badlands of Saskatchewan along Butch Cassidy's old Outlaw Trail; and heads deep into the eerie but beautiful caves of Vancouver Island. But this trip is not just about physical challenges; it's also the perfect opportunity to meet a fascinating mix of people. As he heads east to west across Canada, Charley plays ice hockey with alegend of the game; spends a day as a cadet with the Mounties; works with lobster catchers and dinosaur hunters and nearly meets a ghost in Winnipeg.As ever, Charley jumps at every new experience with enthusiasm and humour. The result is a fast-paced, hugely entertaining travel book, packed with a dventure (and rather a lot of mosquitoes)." (from the dj). Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 17.50

Pp (10),11-215,(1), frontispiece + 12 leaves ofplates Jacket design by Rowland Trevor. Printed by the Hugh Heaton Printin g House, Limited. Hugh Ross Cameron Boyd (b. 24 Jul 1900 in Ashgrove, Inverness, Scotland - d. 14 Dec 1964 in Edmonton, Alberta). Peel 6157. Not in Watters. "• 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.

First Edition. Pp (8),ix-x, 1-177,(3). Double column. Square 8vo, tan cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "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.
