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.

(6),7-251,(5). 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "What does it mean to be a Westerner? What is the Western experience and, by extension, what makes up the Western soul? In Lilac Moon, Sharon Butala challenges and inspiresus to think about the West in fresh ways. She begins by transporting us to her Saskatchewan ranch, where a soft lilac moon lights the vastness of the prairie landscape. Then, in a series of wide-ranging chapters that ponder the question "What makes a Westerner?" she explores the myths, the history,the peoples of the three prairie provinces. From the pioneer past to Weste rn stereotypes, from racial and ethnic inequalities to party politics, fromrural legends to urban realities, Lilac Moon effortlessly interweaves stra nds of history, family, politics and culture. Butala’s deep Western roots -her family blends bot French and English cultures and has lived in the wes t for five generations - - and her elegquent, perceptive, and questuionuibfmant style combine to create a book rich in insight and an abiding love fo r the vast region she knows so well. Published on the centennial anniversary of the entry of Alberta and Saskatchewan into Confederation, this is a book not just for Westerners, but for all Canadians who want to know -- and understand -- one of the seminal dreams of our nation."

"Award winning author Sharon Butala is wel l known for her vivid and sensitive portraits of the lives of ordinary women. In this new novel she brings us Chloe, a young woman coming to terms with her French and Anglo Canadian heritage. Troubled by the breakdown of her marriage, Chloe forces herself to examine her emotions, her personality, and her heritage. On summer break from her teaching job in Saskatoon, she goes on a voyage of self-discovery - first across Canada to Montreal, and theninto the heart of her own country, St. Laurent, Saskatchewan, an area orig inally settled by French Canadians from Quebec. Chloe is herself half French and half Anglo Canadian, and she comes to realize that the conflicts experienced by her parents, whose marriage was opposed by their families because of its mixing of languages and cultures, have resulted in conflicts in Chloe herself which are not resolved. As she gets to know her French relatives in St. Laurent and the ardent Francois Benoit, Chloe begins to learn something from her family's past that she can use in her own future. In readingthe diary of her grandmother, given to her by her great aunt, Chloe gains needed insights into the French situation in the West, the problems faced by her ancestors, and her own struggle to forge an active, independent personality."

CALDER, Robert. A Richer Dust : Family, Memory and the Second World War. (Toronto) : Viking Canada, (2004). First Printing. Pp (),ix-xii,(2),1-271,(3)+ 8-page photo section. 8vo, two-tone cloth, grey boards, black spine. "Wh en Captain Ken Calder returned home to Saskatchewan after five years of fighting in World War II, the last thing he expected to find was another man living with his wife. Three weeks later, the heartbroken soldier mailed a suicide note to his closest wartime buddy, and took his own life. Fifty yearslater, Calder's two nephews, finally learned of the note and got to read t hat wrenching missive. In the process, they befriended the man who had beentheir uncle's confidant. In A Richer Dust, author Robert Calder uses his u ncle's wartime journal and letters, as well as newspaper accounts and military memoirs, to vividly recreate the horrendous battlefield conditions in Italy and Holland. Amid bombs and artillery fire, amid seas of mud and endless rain, soldiers kept alive a vision of home and hearth to keep them going. In Ken Calder's case, as in many other instances, that vision proved to be an illusion. A Richer Dust explores the profound effect that the suicide had on Captain Calder's parents, the brother whose alcoholism led to his being institutionalized, and the two boys who grew up idealizing their soldier uncle. It is a powerful exploration of a case of unrecognized post-traumatic stress and a profoundly moving account of war and its aftermath." - from the dj Very good in dustjacket. 17.50
