A new and captivating piece of the puzzle of Farley Mowat's life: the years from his return from the north in the late 1940s to his discovery of Newfoundland and his love affair with the sea in the 1950s. This was a time in which he wrote his first books and weathered his first storms of controversy. It was a time of self-discovery, a formative period for him as a writer and activist. Mowat offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of a writer's career and the events that shaped his work.

Drawing upon powerful images and stories of the past, John Boileau takes readers on a journey through the Eastern Passage region, including Imperoyal, Shearwater, South East Passage, Cow Bay, McNab's Island, Lawlor's Island, and Devil's Island. From fortifications and quarantine sites to aviation bases and even to Bill Lynch's amusement rides and buried treasure, Historic Eastern Passage illuminates the history of the region to the end of the Second World War. Follow Helen Creighton on her search to record folk music and stories, or learn how the air base played a role in the first flight across the Atlantic. With attention to both the special and everyday events, a full picture of what life was once like in Eastern Passage is vividly depicted.

This book is the first comprehensive introduction and guide to Sweden’s most spectacular Stone Age monuments: the dolmens and passage graves, which began to be constructed over 5000 years ago. The introduction provides a detailed social interpretation of these monuments outlining how and why they were built and the ways in which they related to economy and landscape, politics, ceremony, symbolism and belief. This is followed by a systematic regional guide to all the major monuments in Skåne, Halland, Västergotland, Öland and Bohuslän, illustrated by numerous photographs, plans and maps.
