Harper Perennial, 2005. 1st Printing. Trade Paperback. Very Good. First paperback printing. Spine creased, ink name on front flyleaf. 2005 Trade Paperback. xiv, 349 pp., plus 16-page P.S. reading group guide. Although frequently overlooked between the American Revolution and the Civil War, the War of 1812 tested a rising generation of American leaders; unified the United States with a renewed sense of national purpose; and set the stage for westward expansion from Mackinac Island to the Gulf of Mexico. USS Constitution, "Old Ironsides," proved the mettle of the fledgling American navy; Oliver Hazard Perry hoisted a flag boasting, "Don't Give Up the Ship"; and Andrew Jackson's ragged force stood behind it's cotton bales at New Orleans and bested the pride of British regulars. Here are the stories of commanding generals such as America's double-dealing James Wilkinson, Great Britain's gallant Sir Isaac Brock, Canada's heroine farm wife Laura Secord, and country doctor William Beanes, whose capture set the stage for Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner." During the War of 1812, the United States cast off its cloak of colonial adolescence and -- with both humiliating and glorious moments -- found the fire that was to forge a nation. This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more., Harper Perennial, 2005, Huntingdon, Quebec, Canada: Southwest Quebec Publishing. 1993.

Six-foot-eight and dyslexic, he is not an obvious candidate for the Border Patrol, which polices the frontier between the United States and Canada, but somehow, as he ambles round the forest bird-watching, he seems to stumble upon every illegal immigrant and drug trafficker in the area. Meanwhile, his father is dealing with diseased dairy cows, his mother battles encroaching dementia, and their neighbour's daughter Madeline flirts with the cannabis underworld..."Border Songs" is an extraordinary love story and a gently satirical celebration of the coincidental and the miraculous. : Review: 'Charming ... A thoughtful, gentle portrait of a small town packed with eccentricity' The Times 'A gifted and original novelist ... Lynch creates a likeable and diverse cast of characters' New York Times 'Wonderful ... tender, sad and leavened with wit ... Lynch has written not just a liberal critique of the war on terror but also a moving, optimistic rebuttal of our paranoia that encourages us to imagine, with Brandon, the possibility of flying over everything that divides us' Washington Post 'Its hero is an imaginative tour de force. Lynch's comic borderland is not only palpable, it is richly metaphoric' Globe and Mail : About the Author: Jim Lynch grew up near Seattle, graduated from the University of Washington, and has worked as a journalist for the Seattle Times and The Oregonian, winning the Livingston Young Journalist Award and the H.L. Mencken Award among other national reporting honours. He is the author of The Highest Tide, a Richard & Judy bestseller. He lives with his wife and their daughter in Olympia, Washington.

First Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo 0007213808 World War II affected the lives of ordinary men and women more directly than any other conflict before or since. This is an unprecedented look at the lives of twenty-one young men who answered their country’s call to arms and left their homes and loved ones to fight in often unfamiliar and far-reaching corners of the globe. Many never returned, and those who did found their homes and countries much changed by long years of war. Most discovered they had become different people: having seen death and destruction on a scale they had never imagined they would witness, the return to civilian life was often far from easy. Now, more than sixty years on, this remarkable generation is fading. Most are now over eighty and around the world more than two thousand veterans of the war are passing away every day. But in this new book by ‘Sunday Times’ bestselling author James Holland, he recounts the real-life stories of twenty-one young men from around the world who served in different services and different theatres of the war. Whether it be the Byers brothers from Canada or Bill Laity from Cornwall, Wlad Rubnikowicz from Poland or Tom Finney from Preston, each began the war with little idea of what lay in store; and yet, as this book shows, each displayed astonishing courage, fortitude and resilience, united by a sense of honour and duty, and bound by the fellowship of their comrades. Often reacting in very different ways to the strange and frequently terrifying situations in which they found themselves, they each suffered hardships and loss, making sacrifices that can only be marvelled at by today's generation. It was a sacrifice that has ensured a lasting peace amongst the warring nations; and if some of these survivors are perplexed by how the world has developed, none doubts the value of what they did all those years ago. Moving, poignant, and conveying all the drama, tension and fear experienced in war, ‘Twenty-One’ is an uplifting tribute to a passing generation, describing the wide range of experiences and extremes these remarkable men and women witnessed during World War II. ., Harper Collins, 2006
