46617 RICHARDS, James, and Marlene RICHARDS PUBLICOVER, Andy, Capt). Sea In My Blood : The Life and Times of Captain Andy Publicover. Nimbus paperback.
Nimbus, Halifax, 2000, ISBN:1551093324 2000 1551093324 
RICHARDS, James, and Marlene RICHARDS. The Sea In My Blood : The Life and Times of Captain Andy Publicover. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, [n.d. - ca 2000]. First thus. Pp (4),5-124 + a central section (pp. i-xx) of b&w photo illustrations & maps. 8vo, blue photo-illustrated cardcovers.

A first-person narrative of the life of this remarkable seaman born at Dublin Shore, Lunenburg County in 1877. Publicover's experience in shipbuilding, the offshore fisheries, and the coastwise trade to his death in 1960 reads like an index of the fortunes of these North American industries.

"Hero to an American President, leader of daring rescues, survivor of shipwrecks, owner-manager of a fleet of towering cargo schooners, shipbuilder and rigger, Captain Andy Publicover (1877-1960) embodied all the best elements of Nova Scotia's colourful sailing traditions. The sea was so much a part of his like that his sons, wife, daughters and his grandchildren sometimes made up his entire crew. This is Captain Andy's story, based on his own accounts and records, from his boyhood on the South Shore to the war-time tragedy that ended his career." - from rear cover.

"Evelyn Richardson presents here t/he long-awaited sequel to Desired Haven. It is the story of fisherfolk on the south coast of Nova Scotia in the mid-nineteenth century, when sailing ships were proudly meeting the challenge of steam vessels. This tender and powerful drama is played out against a background that forms an intimate picture ofjoys and sorrows of fishermen and seamen, the loves and spites and jealousies that colour their lives, the tempests and shipwrecks that bring tragedy to their homes. There are many memorable characters, drawn with deep insight and at times with gentle humour.
The author has a profound understanding of human strength and weakness. No Small Tempest is a story that grips the emotions, and it also enriches our knowledge of people over whom the sea holds a fascinating but terrible power. While the story is completely fictional, the general theme was suggested by an actual tragedy of a bygone day. " - from the dustjacket flap.

Foreword by her daughters Ann Wickens and Elizabeth June Smith.

"Although Evelyn Richardson is best known for her award-winning account of island life, We Keep a Light, she was also a prolific writer whose articles, essays, and radio scripts chronicle the golden years of Nova Scotia's rich and colourful past. Here, for the first time, is a collection of her best short writings, many of which were previously published in such popular magazines as The Atlantic Advocate, The Advertiser, and Bluenose Magazine, and which convey her love for home and her strong awareness of roots.

A masterly storyteller, Richardson's themes of ancestry, adventure, and the sea are a delightful blend of social history and narrative that illustrate her gift of keen observation and her pleasure in sharing the intrigue hidden in past worlds." - rear.

Evelyn M. Richardson, née Evelyn May Fox (b. 1902, Emerald Isle, Shelburne County, Nova Scotia - d. 1976 Barrington, Nova Scotia) Canadian writier. She was raised on Cape Sable Island, and spent 35 years lighthouse keeping on Bon Portage Island near Shag Harbour.

An account of the natural history of Bon Portage Island, with an emphasis on the bird life.

"Her husband kept the light on the small Nova Scotian island of Bon Portage, eight miles from Cape Sable, and for twenty-six years there Evelyn Richardson's family were the only human inhabitants. The author's life, like that of the island's birds, animals and wild flowers, was governed by sea and season.

With humour and sentiment, Evelyn Richardson takes the reader back and forth across her island, picking bakeapples, stalking shore birds, or thrilling to the discovery of strays or other rare types of bird life. With great charm and a tremendous feeling for the sea and its storm-ridden coast, the author writes of clouds of seagulls and many smaller migrants and wintering birds. She constantly varies her account of ten years of birdwatching with heartwarming descriptions of changing seasons, March storms, offshore fogs and delightful summer days. This award-winning author tells, too, of the animal life, both wild and domesticated, and a variety of shrubs and flowers. When she rushes to her kitchen, binoculars in hand, each new experience becomes a treasure to be shared." - front dj flap.

Literature of Canada: Poetry and Prose in Reprint, volume 18. General Editor: Douglas Lochhead. "'The Canadian Brothers' combines all the excitement of a sentimental wilderness romance -- mysterious and surprising occurrences, terrors by night and day, deadly combats, haunted minds, consuming passions -- with an account of first-hand experiences during the War of 1812. [...] 'The Canadian Brothers', originally published in 1840, is a sequel to 'Wacousta' and takes up the family history about fifty years later, having its historical basis in Richardson's own experience (and that of his brother) in the War of1812. As a young man, Richardson took part in much of the military action described in the book, including the shelling of Frenchtown and the defeat of the British at Moraviantown. His accountof the misery of the prisoners captured there by the Americans also reflects personal experience. General Brock, Captain Barclay, and Tecumseh are gloriously themselves and are accorded respectful tributes." - from the rear cover. Very good. 15.00

Pp (6),vii-xii,1-273,(3). 8vo [154 x 233 mm], green paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in white. Theresa R. Richardson (b. 1935). "In this book, Richardson crosses disciplinary boundaries to examine mental hygiene issues of contemporary concern in both the United States and Canada. The work juxtaposes a social history of the child in the twentieth century to shifts in private and public power as influenced by the mental hygiene movements in both countries. The author shows how the historical record sheds light on current policy concernedwith mentally, emotionally, and educationally handicapped children. As a s ociology of mental illness, the book examines the relationship between mental hygiene as a form of knowledge and the social institutions that fosteredthe use of psychiatric perspectives concerning child and family life. Sign ificant topics covered in this regard include the history of early childhood and parent education, the origins of child psychiatry in treating juvenile delinquency, and the evolution of contemporary concepts of normal development."

With his life growing more ruinous by the day -- his writing career is on the rocks, his struggling vineyard is being investigated by the feds, and his son, a former child star, is in prison -- Elliot decides to do what any self-respecting wine lover would do: escape to France. Alas, fate has other things in store. Stranded in Canada by an expired passport, he is strongly encouraged to remain there due to his bit part in a growing Hollywood scandal. Deciding that Toronto may just be the perfectly engineered city in which to lay low, Elliot kills time by bluffing his way to the top of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Can Elliot tell the suits what they want to hear – and give the people what they want to watch – without sacrificing his principles, his taste, and his soul?” - from the back cover.
