Amelia was of mixed blood too, being part-Cree, part-Scot. She never left the northern Canadian forests until she married James, but ended up a respected lady of the Empire. Between them, James and Amelia Douglas knew everybody who was anybody in western North America. Their lives saw astonishing contrasts, from crossing North America by canoe to touring Europe by train, from Native uprisings to frantic gold rushes. They met with grief as well as glory, losing seven of their beloved children. Old Square-Toes and His Lady is a story of the adventure, heartbreak and devotion that lies at the roots of western Canada. (335-noto)

JANE FAIRFAX Jane Austen's Emma, through Another's Eyes, Aiken, Joan
29 Aiken, Joan JANE FAIRFAX Jane Austen's Emma, through Another's Eyes
St. Martin's 1991 0312058845 / 9780312058845 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket 
HC/DJ - VG+. Cover has slight edgewear, light soiling outer edge of pages. Pages clean and intact, , no markings, not price clipped. Publishers Weekly: "Once again Aiken ( Mansfield Revisited ) playfully recreates the fictional world of Jane Austen by appropriating her characters: Jane Fairfax is the friend and rival of the heroine of Emma . Here, headstrong, self-important Emma Woodhouse is pushed from center stage as the limelight falls on the childhood and maturation of her foil. Orphaned Jane is brought up by her shabby-genteel aunt and grandmother in Highbury, near the Woodhouse family estate. Jane joins Emma in her music lessons, where Jane's talent and diligence invite a jealousy in Emma, which is partly overcome after the death of her mother leaves a disconsolate Emma receptive to too-good-to-be-true Jane's sympathy. Then an old family friend whisks Jane off to London in order to educate her alongside his daughters, so that she might eventually support herself as a governess. A grown-up Jane returns to Highbury secretly engaged to Frank Churchill, whose aunt refuses to die and leave him the money and freedom to marry as he chooses. While Aiken lacks Austen's incomparable style and wit, her light, diverting novel captures the flavor, if not the substance, of Austen's milieu. " (400noto); 8vo

Kitab / Syracruse University Press 2000 0965203131 / 9780965203135 First Edition Softcover Very Good+ 
Ex-library book, but still in excellent condition - sturdy laminated cover and usual ex-lib type markings such as front and spine sticker. Interior pages clean and tight, a little scuffing of front cover. ; Jusoor Series 11/12; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 460 pages; "The author of The Prophet and the best-known Arab American literary figure, the late Kahlil Gibran would be proud of a new generation represented in this anthology of more than 40 writers and poets. After more than a century of Arab immigration to the United States, Arab American literature in English remains largely obscure, to say the least. This collection of previously unpublished poetry, drama, fiction, creative prose, and literary and cultural criticism features a range of writers, both seasoned and upcoming. While the Middle East and the old country are often reference points, themes are not limited in this regard. Most of the contributors have been influenced by their ethnic and cultural background, current political events, and the American experience, while some of the writers included are not Arab at all but identify with Arab culture. This ambitious, richly illustrated volume is both a celebration of an ethnic experience and a window through which to view Arab American literature still in its infancy. Although the brief introduction could have offered more historic and cultural background to an American audience largely ill informed about the Arab American community, this wonderful collection is recommended for all literature collections."

One of America's most famous handicapper's reveals his million dollar secrets of successful, consistent betting. ; Review: "I have bought an estimated 30 books or booklets on winning at the race track, and Al Illich's method to pick big winners in the Daily Double is THE BEST idea I've ever seen. He learned it in 1941 and it still kills. On Sept. 9, 2006, I cashed my biggest winner using his method at PENN, paid $98.40 to win and $50.60 to place. By the way, I coupled his big winner with the favorite and another big speed horse and won the $1025.60 exacta! I track my DD winners and so far I've cashed 72 winners averaging $15.68 to win. I had another $69.00 winner at another track this past June. Al's book stays right next to my bed, I reread it often. He has a ton of other great ideas as well. This book is a gem, if you're interested in winning big payoffs. I have nothing whatsoever to do with Al or his book, but would love to shake his hand. " (430os)
