Lavishly illustrated and richly told, using the full resources of the Canada Aviation Museum — Canadian Wings is a stunning tribute to the men, machines and daredevil achievements of Canadian flight. This book gives a full and copiously illustrated account of how powered flight developed during its first century in Canada, as well as the contribution that Canadians made to the wider story of flight in the world. Canadian Wings draws on the unparallelled collections of the Canada Aviation Museum in Ottawa, for its nearly 200 images including archival photographs, paintings, and memorabilia. It features the artworks of Robert Bradford, former director of the Museum, and Dan Patterson, photographer and author of several aviation books. Combined with compelling history and colourful anecdote, this beautifully illustrated book will give readers a new appreciation of how northern wings have helped to build, defend, and explore this vast nation, and to project its image abroad.

This delightful collection is the only work to bring together first-hand stories form Canada's acting community. Funny, shocking, embarassing and poignant, these are the stories actors tell each other, providing an intimate glimpse into the world behind the camera and beyond the footlights.Arranged thematically, it starts with "The BUg Bites", a chapter that focuses on early acting experiences ranging from William Shatner's first stage appearance and the evolution of Martin Short's "Ed Grimley" character, to Wayne and Shuster's initial meeting with Ed Sullivan. Other chapters look atmentor's, directors and producers, working with kids and animals, missed cues and lines, touring, audiences and fans, pranks and escapades, and live radio and T.V. performances. "Big Wigs and Legends" contains anecdotes starring names like Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, Sir John Gielgud, Julie Andrews,Vanessa Redgrave, Steven Spielberg, Richard Burton, Barbra Streisand, Laurence Olivier, and Katherine Hepburn. Included are many stories from the Stratford Festival: Scott wentworth cracking up during Richard III, an actor on stage catching fire during a production of Othello, and William Hutt'sdying in an unconventional manner when Christpher Plummer's Hamlet could not get his sword out of the scabbard (Polonius' death did not look accidental). Along the way you'll find "Bare Bods and Bodily Functions", which includes an anecdote by Bruce Breenwood that begins intriguingly "Standingnaked in the wings before an entrance...," as well as "Stunts and FXS", which includes Timothy Findley's story from the first season of Stratford in 1953, when he had to make a ten-foot leap (from the balustrade) through the dark...and not land on Alec Guiness, whose single spotlight was the onlylight there was." Brought together by two veteran Canadian actors, An Actor, Eh? features a star-studded cast giving the performances of their lives.
