5-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Tragedy in the North
This is an incredible tale of a Canadian Mountie patrol that disappeared in the northern wilderness under frightful freezing conditions. No one knew what really happened until the author -- many decades too late -- found the wrong turn the patrol took. You'll gain a new appreciation of the Canadian Mounties and all they stand for in North's The Lost Patrol. ... Read more

Book Description

Having quit engineering, Bucher became involved in exploration of the Northland of Canada, primarily the high-Arctic. The story in hand is about a scientific exploration on the ice-covered offshores in the Queen Elixabeth Islands. It is not a scientific essay or just another adventure book. It is a reconstruction of an Arctic exploration that can never be restored or repeated in the way it was conducted, nor in its significance as a scientific endeavor--it was a first and only. The main theme of the story revolves around the ways this remote and, at that time, mostly unexplored part of the Arctic affected me: the loneliness, the cold, the harsh beauty, the physical and mental stress the author endured, and the addictive effect the Arctic had on him. ...

Book Description

An intimate look at the people of the prairies inManitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta who they are, how they live, what makes them a breed apart

The prairies are Robert Collins’s spiritual home. He was born and raised on a Saskatchewan farm, but spent most of his adult life living elsewhere. Now he returns to his homeland to pay homage to the special character of the people who live in this unique region of Canada.

Prairie People is an absorbing combination of stories, anecdotes, and touches of history told in the voices of ordinary people and linked by the author’s own narrative and memories. It explores the characteristics that define these people to themselves and to the rest of Canada. Prairie people are clearly not all alike: city and town dwellers differ from farmers, farmers from ranchers, ranchers andcowboys from oilmen. But many of the stereotypes are true. They are defiantly pessimistic. They believe they are tougher than everybody else. They are uncommonly independent and self-reliant.

In this sympathetic yet realistic portrait, Collins looks at where the original settlers of the prairies came from. He describes how nature shaped them, and how hard work through good times and bad toughened them. He finds evidence of their legendary friendliness and neighbourliness. And he seeks to understand their deep attachment either to the left and right in politics and their unifying distrust of “Central Canada.”

Catlog: Book (1999-03-16)
Publisher: Doubleday Canada
Sales Rank: 372182
US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France | Japan

Book Description

For nearly three decades, Joyce Milgaard told anyone who would listen that her son David was an innocent man trapped in a nightmare, sentenced to life in prison at age seventeen for a rape and murder he did not commit.

From the time David was imprisoned in 1970, Joyce Milgaard pleaded with prime ministers, justice ministers, lawyers, scientists, church groups, police and the media to achieve her son's freedom.

Finally, David was released from prison in 1992, and in the summer of 1997, his name was cleared. DNA testing conducted in a laboratory in England conclusively proved what Joyce had always maintained -- that her son was the victim of a gross injustice when he was convicted and imprisoned for the murder of nursing aide Gail Miller of Saskatoon.

Joyce Milgaard's first-person story is an inspiring example of the unbreakable bond between a mother and her child, an illustration of the supportive strength of religious faith, and an empowering victory for the human spirit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Struggles and Joys of a Pioneer family
Read it at once like a novel or in chapters like a series of vignettes, this delightful book features difficulties facing a farm family, and rejoices at their victories and grieves over their sorrows and defeats. Enjoy the mischievous pranks of a bunch of farm kids who invented ways to make their hard work more fun, and how their jokes sometimes turned into expensive lessons when things went awry. The intense desire for education that drove these farm boys to make enormous sacrifices in order to have an opportunity to achieve their goals is inspiring. This is a great book for young folks who are wrestling with lifes tough questions, and how faith, persistance and determination can lead to fulfilment of dreams. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Let's go north!
Rowley's fresh and colloquial style of narrative makes you feel at home in the arctic. While you read you can feel the cold wind in your face, you hear the dogs breathing and the ice cracking and you smell the fresh winter air. You start longing for the moment when you can meet all those friendly Inuit. And when you finally get to the arctic you will see that not much has changed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An amazing journey into the past...
As a child of the seventies, I know not of the turbulent times that so many lived through during the War. To hear in Hanna's own words the pain of discrimination, and being labelled as subhuman, and to hear the sadness, fear and longing for her true love Hans (who she can no longer associate with as he is a Christian, she a Jewish descendant)...to hear these things in her own words from that time, transported me to that time in history. I almost felt as if I was there, sharing in her pain and not knowing the uncertain future...even though I knew what history had brought, and I was indeed using my will and hope for it not to happen (even though I knew War would be there, as well as the persecution of so many innocent people). I wished I could erase history...but from reading this story, I hope many people will learn from it. I learned that strength and faith, can see us through many hard times.

This book was an amazing journey and I feel richer for hearing Hanna's words. ... Read more
