Bryan, Liz
Liz Bryan explores and celebrates the amazing landscapes of British Columbia and traces the early history of this, Canada's western-most province. Through 18 picturesque country journeys, mostly in the Interior between the Rockies and the Coast Mountains, she takes readers through some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery in the country. British Columbia has everything: forests, rivers, lakes, grasslands, alpine peaks, sagebrush plateaus, desert valleys and badlands.This diversity can be explained in part by the province's remarkable geological history: it is not one land, but several, formed over time by unstoppable tectonic forces and modified by volcanic activity and glacial ice. In this title, much of the human history of the province, which closely follows the patterns of its geology, can be discovered along the network of roads stitching the province together. In this book, traces of the Native peoples' ancestral presence are found, along with those of the fur traders, explorers, gold miners, ranchers and homesteaders who settled here. This book offers an invitation to celebrate British Columbus' scenic heartland. Driving instructions and maps complement the text, and Bryan's colour photographs demonstrate the spectacular beauty of British Columbia. 190pp.

Melnyk, George
In this, the companion to the landmark volume 'The Literary History of Alberta: Volume One', George Melnyk examines Alberta literature in the second half of the twentieth century. At last, Melnyk argues, Alberta writers have found their voice -- and their accomplishments have been remarkable. The contradictory landscape, the stereotypes of the Indian, the Mountie, and the Cowboy, and the language of the Other, speaking from the margins -- these elements all left their impressions on the consciousness of early Alberta. But writers in the last few decades have turned this inheritance to their advantage, to create compelling stories about this place and its people. Today, Melnyk discovers, Alberta writers can appreciate not only this achievement, but also its essential source: the symbolic communication of Writing-on-Stone. The book extends the study of Alberta's cultural history to the present day. It is a vital text for anyone interested in Alberta's vibrant literary culture. 302pp.

Kahler,Gert
The text is both in English and German. The building for the Alfred-Wegener-Institut fur Polar- und Meeresforschung is near the city centre by the commercial harbour. What is striking is the unusual facade: a pattern is made with glazed tiles in white, grey and black, seeming more regular than it actually is. 60pp.
