Olander, Ann and Farley
Top corner of front board bumped otherwise New. Although Southern California's mountain ranges are only partially wilderness, they bring wonder into our daily lives even from a distance. I wrote this book to remind us of this wonder, to champion the mountains' beauty and inspire their protection. In addition, I wrote this book for people around the world to know a seldom heralded dimension of Southern California. Several years ago I couldn't find such a book to show Swiss friends. Also I've always wanted to show our mountains' beauty to friends and relatives across the country, to come and visit them vicariously. "Call of the Mountains" is for you who can't get to the mountains, but glimpse them from afar and feel their wonder. Last, I wrote this book for you who already know these streams, canyons and peaks. For you, the following pages will jog memories of special places and occasions that are yours alone. My Story - and the stories of people I met - takes us along trails to historic areas, sparkling waterfalls, pristine meadows and the highest peaks. 192pp.

Macnair, Peter L.; Hoover, Alan L; Neary, Kevin
This is a classic book on First Nations art and culture is back in print. "The Legacy" is so much more than an elegant art book. It is a delightful and informative guide to the continuing First Nations artistic traditions. A spectacular selection of colour photographs displays the work of 40 artists, and the authors present a detailed analysis of the culture that inspired their work. The authors also discuss the social function of the artists' work, and the different styles, techniques and materials used to create them. The book is based on an exhibition of the same name that travelled throughout BC and Canada and to the United Kingdom in the 1970s and early 1980s. The exhibition helped bring world-wide attention to Northwest Coast First Nations art. The first edition of the book was published in 1980, and in its Foreword, R Yorke Edwards, then Director of the BC Provincial Museum, says: '"The Legacy" has refused to stay on our store-room shelves. This book will ensure that it remains accessible in printed form to a wide audience for many years'. Prophetic words - for this book has been reprinted a dozen times and sold over 25,000 copies. "The Legacy" has become an enduring tribute to the continuing tradition of Northwest Coast First Nations art, and remains an important guide for scholars and art lovers. This new edition includes updates to the artists' biographies and First Nations' names. N.B Very slight mark to front cover. Base of spine slightly rubbed.193pp.
