  • Entangled Roots: The...

    CA$17.95
    The 1894 death of David Scollie in Peterborough, Ontario, has haunted both the town and the family of Hessie Gray, the sharp-tongued Irish woman accused of his murder. Hessie's descendant, Bev Lundahl, has searched a century's worth of historical documents looking for the truth. If David Scollie died in a house fire, as it seemed, why had his head disappeared? How did he meet his grotesque death? And what did three men of the Hiawatha Reserve know about the charred remains? Like the primal blasts of the searing winter storm, the repercussions of this event--the collision of two cultures--has reverberated down the decades. This flashpoint in her family history created shockwaves that propelled the author into unfamiliar territory to begin a journey into the heart of First Nations country and follow an obscure trail that would expose the bones of Canadian history.
  • Faces of the Force: True...

    CA$19.95
    They hailed from all regions of Canada. They were focused on a momentous task. They were going to uphold the laws of this country.

    In June 1966, thirty-two young men from across Canada arrived at RCMP “Depot” Division in Regina, Saskatchewan, where they underwent rigorous training. The physical and emotional challenges were many, but in spite of these, the recruits developed a sense of camaraderie and determination that enabled them to graduate as C-1966/67 Troop.

    Faces of the Force follows the careers of these young police officers as they dispersed across Canada to encounter both triumph and tragedy; some would remain in the RCMP, others would pursue other paths. Through it all, they would never forget the lessons they learned, and what it means “to serve and protect.”
  • Finding Christopher: A...

    CA$19.95
    Grieving for your child is an appalling prospect, truly a parent's worst nightmare.

    Through a mist of pain and sorrow, Alison Montgomery struggled to find some measure of peace and, in doing so, rediscover herself after the accidental death of her 24-year-old son, Chris. Shattered by the loss, she is not the person she was--her life forever divided into "before" and "after," defined by membership in a fraternity of grieving parents who function every day in a disbelieving fog.

    You never get over it; you just get through it ... one day at a time.
  • Forgotten Gardens,...

    CA$29.95
    In the early 1900s, station gardens were part of the welcoming gateway to the travelling public, an introduction to the urbanity of the area and the productiveness of the soil.

    This book may rekindle some memories of station gardens, introduce yet another chapter to the lives of the West.s first settlers and answer some questions regarding those remaining, seemingly oddly-placed trees and hedges near the main streets of many communities.

  • Horse Lake Chronicles

    CA$19.95
    Memories of a northern childhood. Aldred Neufeldt grew up in the small Mennonite community of Horse Lake, northern Saskatchewan, in the 1940s—a place considered by everyone else to be “the boonies” and a time when the devastating effects of the Great Depression were still being felt. Though times may have been tough, it was a childhood of wonder and discovery, nurtured by energetic and resourceful parents who expressed their Christian faith and community values through deeds more than words.

    Neufeldt recounts what it was like to live in the log house built by his father; run along deer trails in the nearby Nisbet Forest Reserve; walk to school on the old Carlton Trail; model home-sewn fashions inspired by the latest Eaton’s catalogue; navigate the social dynamics of a small one-room school; and come to understand how the diverse personalities that made up his extended family—from hardworking pioneer grandparents to an infamous distant cousin accused of murder—helped to shape his own identity.

    Told with zest and a keen eye for humorous detail, Horse Lake Chronicles immerses readers in a way of life now scarcely remembered, and in doing so invites us to reflect on our own origins and pathways to adulthood.
