"Since the 1980s golf has been one of the fastest growing sports in British Columbia, where the first organized course was played in 1893 . Yet until now there has never been a recorded narrative of the popular game in Canada's most westerly province . In Backspin, veteran Vancouver Sun golf writer Arv Olson traces a century of the game from its grassroots at Jericho Beach and Victoria, through the good and badtimes of growth, depression, wars and important tournaments . With 350 pag es of words and 150 photographs Backspin introduces you to people who pioneered golf in the big cities as well as the nooks and crannies of a vast province . You'll be squarely in the gallery of major events which have been staged in B.C., and you'll be fascinated by the magical performances of local shotmakers and of legendary figures who visiited here during the end of barnstorming exhibitions. You'll meet an assortment of colorful characters from Hall of Famers to humble hackers, the champions and hard-luck players, the caddies and lucky ace-makers . There are touches of humor and hardship,tales of murder and mayhem, accomplishments of gifted women, youthful play ers and remarkably aged golfers . And there are insightful looks at the menand women who were B.C. golf's trail blazers, people named Harry Combe, Ar thur Vernon Macon, Violet Pooley Sweeny, Davey Black, Dunc Sutherland, Kathleen Farrell, Jock McKinnon and Fred Wood, and champions Stan Leonard, Ken Black, Vera Hutchings, Doug Roxburgh, Margaret Todd, Dave Barr, Brent Franklin, Marilyn Palmer and Dick Zokol.” - from the dj.

41976 OMMER, Rosemary E. From Outpost to Outport : A Structural Analysis of the Jersey - Gaspé Cod Fishery, 1767-1886. First Edition in dustjacket
McGill-Queen's University Press, Montreal and Kingston, 1991, ISBN:0773507302 1991 0773507302 
OMMER, Rosemary E. From Outpost to Outport : A Structural Analysis of the Jersey - Gaspé Cod Fishery, 1767-1886. Montreal / Kingston : McGill-Queen's University Press, (1991). First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xv,(3),[3]-245,(3). With maps and tables in the text. 8vo, blue cloth, silver lettering.

At the time of publication Ommer was a member of Memorial University of Newfoundland's Department of History and Research Director at I.S.E.R.

Apart from its intrinsic relevance, see index under both Newfoundland and Labrador for passages, (esp. pp.15-19, 53-65).

"Using the extensive papers of the firm Charles Robin and Company of Jersey and Paspebiac, and the records of the Jersey mercantile establishment, Rosemary Ommer presents a detailed case study of commodity trade, uncovering the development, function, and strengths and weaknesses of all aspects of the fishery. Her analysis clearly reveals a functional three-point trading system: production in Gaspe, management in Jersey, and markets in the Mediterranean, the West Indies, and Brazil.

Employing a new set of methodologies developed for this study, Ommer is able to escape the myopic perspective of works which assume that staple-based development comprises only "good" and "bad" staples that inevitably lead to development and underdevelopment respectively. She has instead produced a rich and complex analysis which broadens our understanding of colonial staple development and commodity trade and introduces new insights on regional development." - from the dj.

Contents:
Introduction;

Part I. Origins and Structure of the Trade.
1. Beginnings;
2. Production and Markets: The Fishery at Gaspé;
3. Organization at the Jersey Core;
4. The Merchant Triangle in Action.

Part II. Consequences of the Trade.
