Truscott, Gerald
This title includes a book and a DVD. Highlighted by brilliant photographs, the colourful stories of British Columbia's history leap off the pages of this beautiful book. BC became a colony in 1858, and this book celebrates its 150 years with a selection of vignettes about objects from our collective past and the people intimately involved with them. This entertaining book captures the essence of British Columbia and the diversity of its people and landscapes. Among the stories are, a dozen selections from the People History Project: personal stories and short family histories from around the province. This book also includes "Evergreen Playland", a DVD of BC tourism travelogues from the 1950s and 1960s. 170pp.

Edited By DePasquale,Paul W.
Is Canada truly postcolonial? Burdened by a past that remains "refracted" in its understanding and treatment of Native peoples, this collection reinterprets treaty making and land claims from Aboriginal perspectives. In the spirit of ongoing dialogue, essays by Sharon Venne, Patricia Seed, Harold Cardinal, Frank Tough, and Erin McGregor provide fresh insights to the interpretations of treaties and treaty-making processes, examine land claims still under negotiation, and reclaim the vitality of Aboriginal laws and paradigms in Canada, a country new to decolonisation.119pp.

Edited By White, Howard
By far the largest of the collections "Raincoast Chronicles Fourth Five" collects the complete "Raincoast Chronicles" 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20 and is living proof that some things just keep getting better. Containing 32 inimitable stories, from poems and articles, the volume expounds on such diverse matters as supernatural deer, the cannery village of Ceepeecee, fishing-fleet superstitions and the coveted recipe for donkey boiler coffee. Writers include coast favourites Howard White, Doreen Armitage, Tom Henry, Dick Hammond, Vickie Jensen and Bus Griffiths. As a bonus, this collection includes two longer features: one on the history of Telegraph Cove, BC, by Pat Wastell Norris and one on the frontier women of BC by Stephen Hume. The book is illustrated in characteristically extravagant fashion with drawings and archival photos.420pp.

Shadd, Adrienne
When the Lincoln Alexander Parkway was named, it was a triumph not only for this distinguished Canadian but for all African Canadians. This book looks at the history of blacks in the Ancaster-Burlington-Hamilton area, their long struggle for justice and equality in education and opportunity, and their achievements, presented in a fascinating and meticulously researched historical narrative. Although popular wisdom suggests that blacks first came via the Underground Railroad, the possibility that slaves owned by early settlers were part of the initial community, then known as the 'Head of the Lake', is explored. Adrienne Shadd's original research offers new insights into urban black history, filling in gaps on the background of families and individuals who are very much part of the history of this region, while also exploding stereotypes, such as that of the uneducated, low-income early black Hamiltonian. 374pp.
