1 NIVEN, Frederick Flying Years. British Edition in dustjacket

"In this novel Mr. Frederick Niven's characters move against a background of changing years. Its opening scenes are in Scotland and the hardly known Canadian West of a generation sgo. It is a story of the exiled and evicted in a strange land — and what they made of it and of themselves. Such has been the celerity of change there, that in the lifetime of one man we hear the lowing of the buffalo herds, the cries of the hunters and the shrill sound of the Red River carts fade away over the horizon, giving place to tne locomotive's hoot and the drone, overhead, of the aeroplane. Against the background of the flying years, the background ofTime and Eternity, go transient men — with their ambitions, their loves, t heir hopes, their regrets, there three-score and ten of fugitive experience, their nostalgia -- as in a shadow-show." (from the dj). Fading to both boards, else very good in an attractive dustjacket (spine faded and spine ends chipped). 100.00

"It was in the spring of the year 1811 that Thomas Douglas. Earl of Selkirk, and Captain Miles Macdonell sat in the study of the Earl's London house. On the table between them lay a map [...] . It was a map of Canada, and there, on the banks of the Red River, Lord Selkirk pointed out the tract of land known as Assiniboia which he had purchased from the Hudson's Bay Company in order to found a settlement, a colony, for the Highlanders who were then being evicted from their small crofts to make room for sheep. - It is this story of the first important British settlement in the Canadian West, this epic in the history of Canada, that Mr. Niven tells in Mine Inheritance. In times such as these [during WW2], there is a profound significance inthis story of the first opening up of the Canadian West, the adaptation of life to adverse conditions, the will to live freely and at peace." - from the dj.
