Wahl, Ryan
Centuries before steel, fibreglass, aluminium and automation were applied to shipbuilding, early twentieth century British Columbian shipwrights hand built fish boats entirely out of wood. Guided by their intuition and knowledge of the sea, they used only basic tools to craft thousands of vessels that shaped the way shipwrights and marine architects design the boats of today. This is an illustrated story of one of those shipwrights, Ed Wahl. With the help of his six sons, Wahl created the most successful commercial fish-boat building enterprise on British Columbia's north coast, and one of the most well known boat shops on the entire British Columbia coast. Threaded with memories of Ed's sons and the crew of the Wahl boatyards, this book provides a unique look into a family business that enabled the fishing industry to be a mainstay of British Columbia's economy. 222pp.

Scott, Joan Wallach
When feminists argued for political rights in the context of liberal democracy they faced an impossible choice. On the one hand, they insisted that the differences between men and women were irrelevant for citizenship. On the other hand, by the fact that they acted on behalf of women, they introduced the very idea of difference they sought to eliminate. This paradox - the need both to accept and to refuse sexual difference in politics - was the constitutive condition of the long struggle by women to gain the right of citizenship. In this book, historian Joan Wallach Scott reads feminist history in terms of this paradox of sexual difference. Focusing on four feminist activists - Olympe de Gourges, who wrote the "Declaration of the Rights of Woman and Citizen" during the French Revolution; Jeanne Deroin, a utopian socialist and candidate for legislative office in 1848; Hubertine Auclert, "the" suffragist of the Third Republic; and Madeleine Pelletier, a psychiatrist in the early 20th century who argued that women must "virilize" themselves in order to gain equality - Scott charts the repetitions and variations in feminist history. When sexual difference was taken to be a fundamental difference, when only men were regarded as individuals and thus as citizens, how could women also be citizens? The answers feminists offered to such questions are the subject of this book. 229pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Inside of D/J marked.

Cooper, Jim
Log homes have come a long way from the wilderness cabins of colonial pioneers. With the advent of new technology and the ever-increasing skill sets of contractors, log homes have become one of the most luxurious kinds of homes built in America. With multi-gabled rooflines and glass-fronted living areas, these sophisticated homes have captured the interest of architects and homeowners alike. In this updated and revised third edition, Jim Cooper includes new information on 'green' construction techniques and materials. Whether planning a new log home or simply interested in learning more about them, readers will find all of their questions answered here. 288pp. N.B. Corners slightly bumped.

Walker, David P. Staff Sergeant
This book tells a one-of-a-kind story of resilience and determination in the Vietnam War. It is written in a no-holds-barred, from-the-gut style. In January 1968, barely a month after arriving in Vietnam as part of an elite long range patrol (LRP) team, Dave Walker received a debilitating shrapnel wound to his eye. Medically discharged and sent home, Walker - now missing an eye - manoeuvred his way back into the army and back to Vietnam in 1970. Battle-hardened, aggressive, and courageous, he served another eighteen months with the best of the best, conducting patrols and special operations in the Central Highlands. 217pp. N.B. Top right corner of front cover slightly creased.
