  • Title: And the Swamp Flourished: The Bittersweet Story of Holland Marsh
  • Author: Albert VanderMey
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Indeed the swamp flourished but success was not presented on a silver platter. Professor Day, whose vision for the area led to its development, initially did not receive the co-operation he sought for his far-reaching plans in 1923. And when those plans finally were being realized, the times were so tough he lost his personal fortune in the Marsh. By that time many Dutch immigrants had settled in the Marsh, ensuring Dutch settlers, life would be one with many bittersweet moments and episodes. And the centennial year of organized Dutch emigration to Canada as a tribute to all who pioneered on foreign soil to help build a future in a land with numerous opportunities. And the Swamp Flourished is a skillful weaving of narrative and family recollections which engagingly reveals the history of the Marsh from the time when Samuel J. Holland surveyed the area in 1791 to the present. Albert Vandmey’s text is illuminated with over 200 appropriate illustrations. Holland Marsh’s development from a watery wasteland to Canada’s prime source of fresh vegetables clearly exhibits the dikes, canals, intensive agricultural specialization and even a disastrous flood in the 1950’s, the Marsh may well be the most Netherlandic of Dutch ethnic regions in North America. After exploring the route which brought Holland Marsh success and prosperity, VanderMey discusses changes in soil management, crops and agricultural technologies which will challenge current and future generations of the Marsh.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

In 1913, The Brantford Sanatorium, built on Strawberry Hill, first threw open its doors to serve the public in the battle against tuberculosis. As society changed its needs and wants, The Sanatorium evolved to rise to the challenge of meeting those same requirements. From tuberculosis to chronic care, from chronic care to tending children with severe developmental disabilities, and finally to supplying said clientele with daily programs and simulation, Brantwood continues in a model of excellence. This book is a brief history of not only this “Institution”, it is a view of the paths that society traveled, a roadmap of our evolution into understanding. One can trace the passageway to enlightenment, as we come to know that, at the end of the day, we, society, are a compilation of people who should relish our diversity of contribution. 51 Pages Black & white photos throughout.

To escape arrest for murder, Westlake is now forced to join the British Army and pose as a fur trader while on a secret mission for Major General Isaac Brock. In a frantic search for the girl he rescued, down Georgian Bay to Fort Detroit, Westlake discovers treachery in his own family circle. His friends, a French Canadian named Lapointe and a Shawnee native called Paxinos, will remain loyal to him in a battle that may cost all of them their lives.

In a race for their lives to escape the hunters, he searches for the location of three secret abolitionists, conductors on the new “underground railroad.” Then, on the cool morning of October 13, 1812, the hunted become the hunters, as all the opposing forces collide in the legendary Battle of Queenston Heights.

But the delay in opening it is costly! At the highest levels in York’s garrison, there is a traitor selling vital intelligence to the enemy. Brock’s letter sends Westlake on a deadly mission to find the traitor and his secret accomplices. Battling weather and enemy soldiers, Westlake fights his way across the frozen St. Lawrence River into American territory. At Sackets Harbor, he soon discovers that the largest combined army and naval invasion in American history is in the planning. How does the traitor figure into their plans and where will the bluecoats hit Upper Canada first – Kingston, Niagra, or York (now Toronto)? An enticing barmaid, smugglers, and traitors on both sides teach Westlake that honour has a way of changing its meaning according to the circumstance. This is the third book in a four-part series.

  • Title: Buckskin & Broadcloth: A Celebration of E. Pauline Johnson – Tekahionwake 1861- 1913
  • Author: Sheila M. F. Johnston

 

Additional DescriptionMore Details

This is the first generously illustrated biography of the Mohawk poet-performer, E. Pauline Johnson – Tekahionwake. The author has created an exciting volume of anecdotes, letters and poetry, and illustrated it with period photographs and new illustrations by the Six Nations artist, Raymond R. Skye. While the story of Pauline Johnson has been told before, it has never been given the intimacy that this book provides. Tracing her ancestry, moving on to explore her extraordinary stage career; and finally shedding light on Pauline Johnson’s last years in Vancouver; Sheila M.F. Johnston has breathed new life into the compelling story of one of Canada’s brightest literary and stage stars. This book contains over forty poems that are not part of Pauline Johnson’s classic collection of poems “Flint and Feather.” The “uncollected” poems have been culled from archives, libraries and out-of-print books. They shed light on the development of the poet, and enlighten and enrich her life story. “Buckskin and Broadcloth” is truly a celebration of the life of a Canadian hero – one whose legacy to Canadian literature and Canadian theatre is unparalleled.

Call Me J. Book 1 of the Holy Snappin’! Trilogy

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Author: Pamela Lee Holy Snappin’! Trilogy Synopsis–Book 1 Call me J. Contemporary historical events and pop-cultural reminders abound and mingle with the lives of this ‘seemingly’ typical Boomer family in this first book of the family chronicle trilogy as it delves in deeply, helping the reader fall in love with each character of the Magyar family. Father Max is a first generation Hungarian Canadian. Mother Lily a fierce and loving spirit. The five children are as unique and varied as a box of crayons with protagonist, Annalee introduced in the Prologue as she spends mysterious moments in a Gypsy tent-her life laid out before this cloistered teen. The imagery and sometimes minute detail pull the reader in, engaging them from the beginning ’til the last breathless words on the last page of this fat read of Book 1, Call me J. Often, pre-publish readers point out they were, themselves, brought back and firmly planted again in THEIR lives in those dozens of moments in time the author highlights and peppers throughout the novel. Remembering when. Example–what DID happen in the average household after the J.F.K. assassination? How DID parents react? Initially, in chapter one and into chapter two, the manuscript reads like an idyllic and charming sitcom of the “happy-days’ of a 7 member gentleman farmer’s family. Reality sets in in chapter three, “Nice guys finish last’ when a graphically described tragic, dramatic happening lands on too many laps, bringing to bear how close-knit if not close proximity clans circle their wagons when the chips are down. Annalee begins to journal in earnest here and speaks her mind in spades. Chapter four, ‘Lily’s in the Valley’, will have readers thinking “OMG!! I cannot IMAGINE!!! I couldn’t COPE if that happened to OUR family!” Chapter 5 brings unwanted new beginnings, leading the reader to a place where they cannot WAIT for book 2. Spanning and including over 50 years, this funny, forthright, down-to-earth but melodramatic chronicle begins in the early stages in protagonist Annalee’s family’s lives, with the infamous Hurricane Hazel of 1954 as it swept through HER place in life, taking young child Annie right on through to her stormy mid-thirties in Book 1, Call me J where Annie has found her Prince in shining armour, birthed three children; two who, with the aid of father Robert, are in hot pursuit of eventual NHL fame. Within the trilogy, the author takes a naive high school dropout country gal on unexpected journeys so varied as to be pooh-poohed as unlikely in one lifetime. Annie, born different from her sibs with a soul set on flight-mode more often than not, still happily approaches a decided future settled in a small manufacturing town in southwestern Ontario, Canada. She ventures, instead, to a life of magical adventure. Or misadventure. Reader’s choice. This honest, memoir-style trilogy will have you saying NO WAY! Again and again as you follow Annie through a lifespan that brings her and hers many more ups and downs than you would expect in a typical dramatic narrative. This manuscript brings it in multiples. Put twenty people in a room; all will have had something immense touch their lives. It could be murder, interference and the potential horrors of stranger danger, disfigurement, addictions, violent domestic breakdowns and other tragedies. Or windfalls, exotic locales, puppies on Christmas morning, found loves and tight family circles. Annie Bell and her clan can claim ownership to all 20 of those biggies. Or 30. Or more. All this you will find within the pages of this saga as you lose yourself in Annalee’s story. Settings: Central and Eastern Canada, Sarasota, Florida and beyond!

  • Title: Canadian Crusoes: A Tale of The Rice Lake Plains
  • Author: Catharine Parr Traill

 

Additional DescriptionMore Details

A Tale of The Rice Lake Plains Along with reporting on the lives of 19th-century Canadian settlers in The Backwoods of Canada (a Canadian classic like her sister Susanna Moodie’s Roughing It in the Bush), Catherine Parr Traill also wrote a number of children’s books, including Canadian Crusoes, which has itself become a Canadian classic. First published in 1852, Canadian Crusoes draws on the mythology of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe to tell a story of pioneer resilience in the face of the often inhospitable Canadian wilderness and the promise this new land offered to those who accepted its challenges. Three young people of Scottish and French ancestry–Catherine, her brother Hector, and her cousin Louis–become lost in the backwoods and survive by virtue of their civilized high-mindedness, discipline, economy, and ability to adapt to the wild Canadian countryside. Returning to “civilization,” they bring with them a young Indian girl whom they have “rescued” from her people. Traill combines her first-hand knowledge of the Rice Lake Plains and the First Nations people there to create an inventive–albeit to modern eyes, melodramatic–tale of adventure for young Victorian readers. As a period piece, Canadian Crusoes is a fascinating artifact in the development of Canadian children’s literature. –Jeffrey Can Book includes maps, documents, sketches of Nelles homes in Canada and plenty of history. 324 pages, 5.75″ x 8.75″ Softcover

  • Title: McKee Rankin And the Heyday of The American Theatre
  • Author: David Beasley
Additional DescriptionMore Details

McKee Rankin burst upon the theatre world in the 1860s. By the age of twenty-one, Rankin, a Canadian by birth, had become leading man at the Arch Street Theatre in Philadelphia, considered to be the best theatre in the country. A matinee idol and a superb character actor, he formed one of the first combination companies to tour America. He wrote successful Western dramas, in which he and his wife, the famous Kitty Blanchard, created unforgettable characters. He built a theatre in New York City and one in San Francisco where, in the 1880s, he created a nationally famous repertory theatre. Persevering, intelligent, and dedicated, his passion for the theatre brought him into conflict with the commercial attitudes of managers. Throughout his ups and downs, from riches to poverty, from handsome man to obese alcoholic, he continued to create great roles. When Rankin died in 1914, the brilliant innovations of this actor-manager, playwright, and director had changed theatre forever. This thoroughly documented biography is also a lively story of one of the most important but least known periods of American theatre, encompassing a wealth of information about great but forgotten actors, a fascinating account of the relationship between the stage and its audience, and several rediscovered, once famous, plays. Students of acting, historians of the theater, and those interested in the cultural development of a continent will find this book invaluable. All readers will be entranced by a world from which today’s entertainment emerged. ISBN: 0-88920-390-3 Publisher: Davus Publishing Number of Pages: 499 Illustrations: 32 illustrations Paperback

Every family has its stories. Passed down through the generations as tales told at family gatherings or by grandparents to their grandchildren. They detail who we are and how we came to be. However, how many of us can tell our stories through the exact words of the people that lived them? Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1847, Alexander Graham Bell lived a unique life. Influenced by his father, Melville, a professor of elocution, and his deaf mother, Eliza; the loss of his brothers, Melville and Edward, to Consumption; and marriage to his deaf pupil, Mabel Hubbard, Bell left a legacy to the world that few could imagine living without. How this came to pass can best be seen through the letters that passed between these individuals. These letters we present to you here. ISBN: 978-0-9864971-0-0 Publisher: Brant Service Press Ltd.

  • Author: Veronica Strong-Boag & Carole Gerson6
Additional DescriptionMore Details

This volume demonstrates how Johnson ‘talked back’ to the dominant culture. Like the Knights of Labor or the suffragists of her day, who too ‘dreamed of what might be,’ she chronicled and questioned prejudice and oppression. While not always consistent or unambiguous, her writing and performances disturbed and remade the conventions that saw First Nations peoples and women as properly subject to imperial, and imperious, masculinity. Her resistance to demeaning narratives is sometimes blunt, sometimes ironical, and sometimes so subtle as to be barely perceptible, but rarely entirely absent…Her public championship of a more inclusive and tolerant nationality incorporating dignity and respect for the First Nations and for women, her claim of both the ‘shadows and the dreaming,’ was a fragile but recurring accomplishment that threatened powerful conventions.

A band of Child Pilgrims in mass exodus, numbering 100,000, spanning seven decades (1869-1939), arrived in Canada. Like seed, they were scattered from Atlantic to Pacific, not in handfuls as would have been appropriate for children, but in singles, one here, another there. Hampered by the derogatory label, Home Child, severed from their familial connections, against the odds, they took root and became grounded and sturdy enough to change the landscape of our young Dominion. Promises of Home is a collection of their stories. It’s time to cry over the abuses they suffered, to applaud their successes and to say, as a nation, “thank you.” ISBN: 978-0-9780622-5-5 Publisher: Magnolia Press Pages: 197 40 photographs throughout Softcover Product Dimensions: 6 X 9In

ISBN:0-9685489-0-3 Publisher: George R. D. Goulet & Tellwell Publishing Number of Pages: 286 Illustrations: 6 illustrations Paperback This book provides a critical legal and political analysis of Louis Riel’s sensational 1885 trial for high treason, and in doing so arrives at some unique and startling conclusions. Riel, the founder of Manitoba, was put on trial for his involvement in the North-West Uprising and executed under a 534 year old English Statute. Ever since this cause celebre Riel has either been revered as a martyred hero or reviled as a murderous traitor. This book investigates, evaluates and provides information from a legal and political point of view with respect to: • selection of the trial site and jury; legal procedures, testimony of witnesses; • Crown and defense counsel, the stipendiary magistrate and their performances; • Addresses of counsel and Riel and magistrate’s charge to the jury; • Judicial and political improprieties at the highest levels; • The charges under an archaic law; other statues and precedents; • Mistreatment of Riel by his own lawyers; their deficiencies; conflict of interest; • Failure of Riel to receive a full defense to which he was legally entitled; • John A. MacDonald’s blatant manipulation of a medical commission; • Rejection of the jury’s unanimous recommendation of mercy for Riel. The Trial of Louis Riel, Justice and Mercy Denied portrays the political, judicial and legal misdeeds which resulted in the unmerciful and unjust execution of Louis Riel. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in political intrigue and miscarriage of justice.
