Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the other British provinces in North America : with a plan of national colonization by James Silk Buckingham( Book )

2 editions published in 1843 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cornish-born traveller and writer James Silk Buckingham (1786-1855) campaigned energetically for social reform while a Member of Parliament during the 1830s. He later spent four years in North America, and in 1839 travelled on to Canada to investigate its social and economic landscape. In this revealing account, first published in 1843, Buckingham recalls his experiences in the Eastern provinces. He found the Canadians to be civilized, hospitable, hard working and unfailingly loyal to Britain (unlike the independent Americans, who he reports they despised). He also encountered evidence of widespread poverty, and argues that in order to advance Canada's economy and, in turn, that of Britain, new emigrants needed better financial support from the British government. He concludes by calling for a new system whereby land, labour, skill and capital would be optimally utilized, in a pioneering proposal that he expected to prove controversial

Traveling through Sinai : from the fourth to the twenty-first century( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this anthology, Deborah Manley and Sahar Abdel-Hakim have collected dozens of accounts and observations from travelers who have written about Sinai, its people, its sights, and its historical and biblical landmarks." "Starting with Egeria, a fourth-century Christian who relates her visit to Mt. Sinai and the Burning Bush, Traveling through Sinai offers a diverse collection of voices over the centuries. Among them are the German friar Felix Fabri, who visited in 1492, and nineteenth-century antiquarian William Flinders Petrie, giving his impressions of the Bedouins of the peninsula. French novelist Alexandre Dumas writes of meeting two monks in the desert carrying a letter signed by Napoleon, while others describe crossing the canal at Suez, the ancient inscriptions of Wadi Mukattab, and the harrowing experiences of desert travel." "For many of the visitors included here, their ultimate destination was St. Catherine's Monastery, a major site for Christian pilgrims since its founding in the fourth century. With an array of narratives from the writings of Procopius, Sir John Mandeville, John Lewis Burckhardt, Isabella Bird, Pierre Loti, Michael Haag, and others, Traveling through Sinai offers a varied portrait of this fabled peninsula that has drawn travelers and pilgrims to it for centuries."--Jacket
