Hemstad, Betty Vos
Travellers in the Boundary Waters find much to draw the eye, not least of which is a profusion of wildflowers at every turn. For the unstudied hiker, what better way to meet these plants than with a friend to guide your vision and your understanding. Betty Vos Hemstad, a summer resident off the Gunflint Trail, is just the woman for the job. Her unique collection of stunning, full-colour photographs, taken over a twenty-year span, offers views of 120 regional flowers shown throughout their life cycles, from bud to flower to seedpod. Some views take you into the heart of the plant, revealing beauty in patterns and textures not seen with the naked eye. Hemstad's practical and personable descriptions spotlight each plant's features and offer titbits about common names, and favourite locations. This beautiful guide is organised by season and then by colour, making it the perfect companion for a walk in the woods, whether on the trail or far from it. And when you have learned all Hemstad has to teach, she offers a Wildflower Challenge - twenty 'neighbours' photographed in one season or another for you to identify and capture with your own camera. Come for a walk in the woods. You will be surprised at what treasures you find. 271pp.

Edited By Lahteenmaki,Maria & Snellman,Hanna
The West has always been a resource for the Finns. Scholars, artists and other professionals have sought contacts from Europe throughout the centuries. The Finnish experience in Western Europe and the New World is a story of migrant labourers, expatriates and specialists working abroad. But you don't have to be born in Finland to be a Finn. The experiences of second-generation Finnish immigrants and their descendants open up new possibilities for understanding the relationship between Finland and the West. The Finnish passage westward has not always crossed national borders. Karelian evacuees headed west, as did young people from the Finnish countryside when opportunities to make a living in agriculture and forestry diminished in the post-war era. The legacy of these migrants is still visible in the suburbs of Finnish cities today. This book is a joint effort of the Department of Ethnology and the Department of History at the University of Helsinki. It was written by Ph. D. students supervised by Academy Research Fellows Maria Lahteenmaki and Hanna Snellman, in collaboration with colleagues abroad interested in current research in ethnology and history. 247pp.N.B.Two corners slightly bumped.
