This book represents the next step in West Coast bird books, a book that moves beyond simple identification to probe deeper into the lives of our feathered friends. Richly illustrated with excellent photographs, it examines birds in their environments, noting what they do, and where and when they can be found. In an engaging, familiar style enlivened by the authors' personal experience and highlighted with intriguing facts by renowned bird biologist Wayne Campbell, this is an indispensable tool not just for learning how to find coastal birds, but also for gaining an understanding of their natural history. 222pp.

Reimer,Mavis Editor
The essays in "Home Words" explore the complexity of the idea of home through various theoretical lenses and groupings of texts. One focus of this collection is the relation between the discourses of nation, which often represent the nation as home, and the discourses of home in children's literature, which variously picture home as a dwelling, family, town or region, psychological comfort, and a place to start from and return to. These essays consider the myriad ways in which discourses of home underwrite both children's and national literatures. This book reconfigures the field of Canadian children's literature as it is usually represented by setting the study of English- and French-language texts side by side, and by paying sustained attention to the diversity of work by Canadian writers for children, including both Aboriginal peoples and radicalised Canadians.It builds on the literary histories, bibliographical essays, and biographical criticism that have dominated the scholarship to date and sets out to determine and establish new directions for the study of Canadian children's literature.275pp.
