Juno Beach : Canada's D-Day victory, June 6, 1944 by Mark Zuehlke( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
BOOK FOUR in the Canadian Battle Series By dawn on June 6, 1944, the rough seas facing three small resort towns in Normandy bristled with an immense armada. More than 6,500 ships prepared to disembark Allied troops in a do-or-die effort: D-Day. The 14,500 Canadians among them were to take "Juno Beach," a five-mile-long stretch protected by a seawall, barbed wire, underwater obstacles, hundred of mines -- and heavily armed German forces inside concrete bunkers, fortified houses, and trenches. Acclaimed military historian Mark Zuehlke recreates this pivotal day of World War II, from planning through attack. Falling through a black night, praying to land on target were the newly trained Canadian para-troopers, among the first Allies on French soil. Canadian soldiers, most untested in battle, crossed the English Channel during a night storm and ran off landing craft into a deadly sea. Juno Beach is their story, shared at last in the rich detail their achievement deserves

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Restoring the Balance combines elements of First Nations traditions and mainstream feminism to produce an outstanding collection of historical and critical accounts of the impacts Aboriginal women have had in the areas of law, politics, education, community healing, language, art, and cultural retention. Fifteen scholars, activists and community leaders illuminate long-standing gender imbalances within the oral and written historical records that have limited the self-actualization of First Nations women, and offer insight into the tangible work that Aboriginal women perform in community and cultural development."--Jacket
The last heathen : encounters with ghosts and ancestors in Melanesia by Charles Montgomery( file )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
In 1892, the Bishop of Tasmania set sail for Melanesia with the intent of rescuing islanders from lives of fear, black magic and cannibalism. Over 100 years later, his great grandson, Charles Montgomery, followed the bishop's route through the South Pacific, seeking out the spirits and myths his missionary forebear had sought to destroy. Montgomery explored remote shores where gospel and empire never took hold. He rubbed shoulders with barefoot preachers, witch doctors and gun-toting rebels, only to discover that the pagan spirits were more tenacious than the missionaries had imagined. Melanesi

A place between the tides : a naturalist's reflections on the salt marsh by Harry Thurston( file )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Based on childhood memory and his naturalist's journals, A Place between the Tides tells the story of Harry Thurston's return to the beloved environment of his boyhood when he moves to the Old Marsh on the bands of the Tidnish River in Nova Scotia. This is the story of the salt marsh, but it is also a personal odyssey, a homecoming for Thurston as a naturalist, culminating in his rediscovery of the bounty of nature where land meets sea." "As a boy, Harry Thurston spent many carefree days on the family's farm on the banks of another Nova Scotia salt marsh, swimming with his mother in the river at high tide, watching the return of tens of thousands of gaspereaux in June, and hiding in the "enfolding green" of the grasses of the marsh. As an adult, Thurston observes the life of the salt marsh from his study window or as he walks or skis through the marsh: a blue heron fishes the marsh pools like a poet searching for the mot juste; a mother fox brings a bloody groundhog pelt to her offspring so that they will learn the smell of prey; a willet throws a lariat of sound around the marsh; a lone harbor seal chugs solemnly along the river." "Throughout the book, Thurston's love of the salt marsh and its creatures shines through. Just as land blends with sea, this is a magical blending of a naturalist's observations and a man's most deeply held memories."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
During the second decade of human life, the body and brain undergo a profound and complex transformation, with emotions and intellect changing as rapidly and unpredictably as weight and height. These changes can be baffling - to teenagers and to those around them alike - but adolescence plays an important evolutionary role in who we become as adults and there are hard scientific facts behind the spots, the smells, and the sexual experimentation, as well as the existential angst, the anger, and the irresistible attraction to all the things that are bad for you. In clear, engaging and amiable prose, David Bainbridge explains the strange and wonderful science of the teenage years. And tells us just exactly what teenagers are for
