Their society places few constraints on its members; they have no government, no authoritative leaders, no formal judicial system. If to paraphrase Rousseau, manis born free but is everywhere in chains, Wola man is very lightly shackle d. Order in Wola Society is based on the exchange of wealth, the effect of an elaborate exchange system that allows the handing round of wealth - pearl shells, pigs and other minor items. Exchange among the Wola is an important social principle. It requires co-operation and constrains the fractious individual to maintain an ordered society. This book presents a vigorous new analysis of a Highlands people that is a substantial contribution both tothe ethnography of the New Guinea Highlands and to anthropological theory. " (from the dj).

March 13, 1951, Brandon, Manitoba). A murder mystery which takes place in the ficticious Membertou County, Nova Scotia.

But after she gets swindled out of her job as loans officer at The Friendly Village Credit Union in Membertou County, Nova Scotia, she has to find some way to help pay the bills. Once she starts tidying other people's houses, she starts stumbling across things thattweak her overabundant curiosity and sense of right and wrong - things lik e a five-year-old child lost in the woods, and a retired couple killed in abotched home invasion. Bonnie's husband, Big Ben Marsden, is skeptical abo ut poking into the corners of other people's lives. He lost his steady job two years ago and keeps up his half of the mortgage payments by cobbling together odd jobs, some of them so odd he hasn't mentioned them to his wife. They have three children living away, and a very late surprise package still living at home. Invariably, Ben and the children get drawn into Bonnie's attempts to suss out what's going on under the surface. "The surface of thecommunity they live in, like any part of rural Canada, may look bucolic fr om the highway, but people with several acres between themselves and their nearest neighbours can get up to some strange behaviour and all it takes isone curious cleaning lady to take notice and ultimately take charge of jus tice." - rear cover.

Cleaning other people's homes entails stumbling across a lot of secrets, some of them deep and dark. Both Bonnie and Ben Marsden have lost their steady jobs but manage to get by with Bonnie working as a cleaning lady and Ben as an all-purpose pair of hands and strong back. Fortunately, Bonnie and Ben are both rich in the most essential resource for successful living: a sense of humour. Ben's methods of employment sometimes involve dealing with people on the wrong side of the law. Ben barely knows Jack Burton, but knows him well enough to explain to Bonnie, "If you play around the edges of the law, you'll sometimes run across a guy who's smart and tough and crazy. All you can do withsomebody like that is stay the hell away from him and hope he gets caught or shot before he runs over somebody you care about." But the upper echelons of law enforcement will put the squeeze on anybody even remotely connected with Jack Burton, and now even Bonnie's friend, Corporal Kowalchuck at the local RCMPt, can prevent Ben from spending forty days in jail. The complexity of the situation puts the marriage to a test and it looks like thay are both about lose. [sic] Bonnie's amteur detecting helps resolve one legal crisis but unfortunately lands them in another more dangerous predicament that not only puts their marriage further in jeopardy but their lives as well." - rear cover.

Eulalie's life seems laid out ahead of her: one day she will soothe her own children with song and the promise of 'Three hills home, my dear,' as they cross into the valley of Ardoise toward their humble farm. Instead of her uncle, it will be the sound of young André Melanson at work that greets them, that is, if André ever finishes making the perfect wagonm wheel - proof to the community that he is ready to marry. Not far away, in the garrison town of Halifax, Corporal Cully Robin's life also seems laid out ahead of him: pressganged into the brutal British army as a teenager, he will spend his days in barracks or on the battlefield until he killed, crippled or too old to march. But an alternate plotBut an alternaten plot - one that will force the paths of André and Cully Robin to cross - is about to change their lives irrevocably. With the looming war between France and England, the Governor of Nova Scotia removes the Acadian people from the land they've lived on for generations and disperses them throughout the colonies to the south. Suddenly, even the simplest expectations are thrown into doubt as they struggle to survive, love and find their way home in the face of obstacles they could never have imagined." - from rear cover.

Double Column. 4to, grey illustrated card covers, lettered in white and red. "The first photographers to capture the Canadian prairies on film defined the region for the rest of the world. Their images of rolling plains, early settlements and architecture, railways, and surveyors, coloured by their own expectations and the instructions of their employers, had an enormous impact on the settlement and the development of the West. In Looking West author and archivist Brock Silversides provides a lasting and valuable record of the changes that transfigured the Canadian prairies during a century of development. Archival photographs and an accompanying essay offer a fascinating and powerful look at a land that has been depicted as everything from a desert to a fertile region of incomparable diversity and beauty. The men and women who chronicled the region's development through their lenses faced countless obstacles from prairie climate and conditions but found in the land and its people a constantly renewing source ofinspiration."

Allegations surface that the expedition failed because of Hubbard’s incompetence, so Dillon Wallace, Leonidas’ partner on the failed expedition, decides to honour a promise that he made toHubbard to complete the route that they had been supposed to take. When Mi na Hubbard discovers what Wallace has planned, she doubts his motives and decides to mount her own Labrador expedition and to beat Wallace to the finish line.

'A remarkable adventure, a heart-rending love story and a gripping race are all front and centre in this account of how one woman's devotion to her late husband's memory transformed Mina Hubbard from a rural Ontario nurse into the most celebrated female explorer of her time.

In 1903, in the midst of an ambitious expedition to map the interior of Labrador, Leonidas Hubbar dies of starvation in a cold, boggy, wind-scoured landscape. Allegations surface that Hubbard failed because of his own incompetence, details that are not refuted by his good friend and partner on the trek, Dillon Wallace. Mina demands that Dillon vindicate her husband's good name, and she is furious at his refusal. When she further discovers that Wallace has planned to complete the originally planned route, Mina's fury turns to action. Driven by a steedy determination, she desides to mount her own Labrador expedition and beat Wallace to the finish line.

The race is on, and Mina and her Native crew discover a landscape at once formidable and alluring. all the time haunted by Leonidas' spectre:

Oh, what this trip would be il he were here. I have to keep reminding myself that the hills he is climbing now must be so much grander and more beautiful to escape an ever-recurring feeling that it is wicked for me to be here when he is not... I never dreamed it could be so splendid. And the grander and more beautiful it grows, the more I hunger for the one who made all things beautiful... (from Mina's journal)

Using original source material as well as memoirs written by the main actors in the drama, Randall Silvis pieces together a narrative of the race between Wallace and Mina Hubbard, as well as the fateful first expedition of Wallace and Leonidas Hubbard. Bringing the history and adventure of Labrador to vivid life, Heart So Hungry is a page-turner of the highest order." - from the dj.

Through four Waves of Settlemen t, Halifax served as Canada's eastern gateway. Few Canadians realize how the women and men of Halifax opened their homes and their hearts to thousandsof servicemen, immigrants, and displaced persons before, during and after two World Wars. Through the words of 110 families and the images of picutres never before seen, and by the recollections of the famous and not-so-famous, a colourful picture emerges of Jewish community life from pioneering infancy to the present time. Adversities included early assimilation, court challenges to the kosher method of killing animals for food, the destructionof the first synagogue [on Starr Street] in the Halifax Explosion, the Dep ression, World Wars, and various splits in the congregation, more than once, as alternate forms and preferences of Jewish life-styles emerged." - fromthe dustjacket.

When, as wife of the first Governor of Upper Canada, Mrs. John Graves Simcoe sailed from England with two of her six children in Septembe r 1791, the land she left was at the height of prosperity and fashion. The Canada beyond the sea was one city -- Quebec -- a couple of towns, and a few hamlets unravelling up the St. Lawrence system. Mrs. Simncoe stayed at Quebec one winter, and then went inland on horseback and by schooner to Niagara, the temporary capital of the new province of Upper Canada. THis was thebeginning of the life she recorded so eloquently in her diary. Governor Si mcoe founded York, now named Toronto, and travelled widely in his domain; his wife wrote her invaluable account of the period, commenting vivaciously on the strange land, the forests, the animals, the Indians, and hte social customs. In her time she met Alexander Mackenzie returning from his journeyto the Pacific, and generals back from places with strange names -- Maumee , Matchedash -- and she knew and admired the Ojibwa chief, Canise." - from the mylar dustjacket.

"The girl was young and very pretty. She had been drinking heavily that night, but she told her story convincingly enough to the Montmartre police. Her professional name was Arlette, ans she was the stripper at Picratt's after-hours cabaret. That evening she had overheard two men plotting to kill a countess for her jewelry. The police listened half-heartedly; no countess had been reported murdered. In the morning she denied her story. She couldn't remember much about a countess.

Three hours later she was dead ... strangled.

And ten hours later a countess was murdered.

When Inspector Maigret took on the case he came face to face with some of Montmartre's most depraved types. Here, with all of Simenon's genius forbrutal understatement, is the record of Maigret's perilous excursion into the half-world of Montmartre after dark in search of a calculating killer." from the dj flap.

He was 59, a widowed, heartbroken journalist and author, lviing in a small village on Isle Madame, Cape Breton, on Canada's East Coast. They met in a coffee shop in Vancouver on a brilliant spring morning, he on a book tour and she the reporter sent to interview him. They talked and talked -- and their lives changed forever. After 800 e-mails, countless phone calls and three letters of rejection, she agreed to start seeing him -- but she wasnever going to leave her beloved West Coast, her family, friends, horses a nd dogs. Silver Donald Cameron was, however, one 'cussedly stubborn man'. Award-winning writer and journalist, Marjorie Simmins tells this story of love and resistance with humour and candour. Times of overwhelming happiness and flattering grief are set against the backdrop of an East Coast Canadianworld she found as foreign as an travel abroad. The two coasts had differe nt food, fish, music, language, history and culture. Even the ocean smelleddifferent, the saltier Atlantic so much more pungent. She came to love tho se differences fiercely -- and she also fiercely loves the man who told hershe was brave enough to 'jump off a cliff -- and tell a damn fine story at the other end'." - from rear.
