In this two-book bundle, Alan Bowker sheds new light on two subjects with a surprising connection: the great Canadian writer Stephen Leacock and the rise of Canada on the world stage, which Leacock profiled with keen wit and observational skill. With Bowker as your guide, explore what it was really like to live through the great upheaval that pushed Canada to come into its own on the world stage. A Time Such as There Never Was Before Ottawa Book Award 2015 — Shortlisted The years after World War I were among the most tumultuous in Canadian history: a period of unremitting change, drama, and conflict. They were, in the words of Stephen Leacock, “a time such as there never was before.” The war had been a great crusade, and its end was supposed to bring a world made new. But the conflict had cost sixty thousand Canadian lives, with many more wounded, and had stirred up divisions in the young, diverse country. With Canada struggling to define itself, labour, farmers, business, the church, social reformers, and minorities all held extravagant hopes, irrational fears, and contradictory demands. Whose hopes would be realized, and whose dreams would end in disillusionment? Which changes would prove permanent and which would be transitory? A Time Such As There Never Was Before describes how this exciting period laid the foundation of the Canada we know today. On the Front Line of Life In the last decade of his life, Stephen Leacock turned to writing informal essays that blended humour with a conversational style and ripened wisdom to address issues he cared about most — education, literature, economics, Canada and its place in the world — and to confront the joys and sorrows of his own life. With an introduction that sets them in the context of his life, thoughts and times, these essays reveal a passionate, intelligent, personal Leacock, against a backdrop of Depression and war, finding hope and conveying the timeless message that only the human spirit can bring social justice, peace, and progress.

From an explorer of the North's cultural landscape, comes the stories and history of remote corners of our North. David F. Pelly gives a rare in-depth account of Inuit history based on oral testimony and historical records. Includes: Ukkusiksalik: The People's Story Ukkusiksalik, now a national park, was in earlier times the principal hunting ground for several Inuit families and was criss-crossed by missionaries, Mounties, and traders. David F. Pelly presents the stories of Inuit elders and historical records to provide a complete history of this extraordinary corner of our northern landscape. Uvajuq: The Origin of Death The Inuit story of Uvajuq (oo-va-yook) is rooted in a time when people and animals lived in such harmony and unity that they could speak to each other. The legend of Uvajuq, as told here, was collected from a group of Inuit elders in the Nunavut community of Cambridge Bay, 300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Thelon: A River Sanctuary David Pelly tells the story of the Thelon, exploring the mystery of humankind's relationship with this special place in the heart of Canada's vast Arctic Barren Lands.

The Almaguin Highlands, an extensive territory covering a 90 kilometre corridor from Huntsville, north to Callander, west to Dunchurch, and east to the Algonquin Park border, is a land rich with lakes, rivers, and a lively history. Once considered as a site for a First Nations Reserve in the early 1800s, Almaguin became a centre for lumbering and ultimately a year-round mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. This 2-book bundle is Astrid Taim's definitive guide to the region and its heritage. Almaguin: A Highland History offers a wide range of stories from the opening of the area by colonization roads to the first vessels on the Magnetawan River and the courage of the early pioneers. Included are community histories of the many towns, villages, and ghost towns of today; profiles of colourful personalities; as well as interesting and amusing tales of these rugged early times. Almaguin Chronicles explores the relationship between lumbering and settlement throughout the Parry Sound District — the last frontier of this part of Ontario. Throughout, rare archival photographs and excerpts from unpublished memoirs augment the text.

As a boy in Oslo, Brooklyn-born Willie Knutsen had a dream. He dreamed of great ships slipping between massive ice floes, sled dogs straining eagerly against their leather harnesses, and the cold arctic sun glinting on vast stretches of inhospitable icy terrain. He dreamed of becoming an arctic explorer--a polar man! In 1936, he set off on a thirty-three-year journey that began during the era of wooden ships and crude dogsleds, and ended during the atomic age of satellites probing polar secrets and nuclear-powered submarines gliding beneath the arctic ice. Throughout those years, Willie lived according to his his motto: “If you make plans and stick to them, the sun will always be on your path.” Willie’s life story is filled with adventure. In 1940, a gripping escape from Nazi-occupied Norway led first to Greenland, then to America aboard an American coast guard icebreaker. The head of the U.S. Air Force personally invited Willie to join the Search and Rescue operations for the infamous “Crimson Route,” the World War II flight path from the United States to Europe via Labrador. After the war, with the Cold War in full stride, the military asked Willie to participate in top-secret missions to the high Arctic. This book holds the first public revelations of those projects. Near the end of his long and fascinating life, Willie asked his son, author Will Knutsen, to write his story. Over a period of five years, Will listened as Willie recounted his numerous exploits. Arctic Sun on My Path is the fruit of that effort. The polar man’s artistic sense brings the book to life with color and colorful characters, many of them famous. Filled with suspense, humor, political intrigue, and human foibles, it is both a story of mankind’s search to understand the unknown, and of one man’s realization of his childhood dream.

The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1897 volume contains the first English translation of Jens Munk's Navigatio Septentrionalis, his account of the Danish expedition of 1619-1620 in search of a North-West Passage to Asia. They reached Hudson's Bay and explored it, producing the first map to show the whole area. However, they were poorly prepared for the conditions there, and almost all the crew died from cold, hunger or disease. They returned to Denmark the following year, and although another expedition was planned, it did not take place.
