MON JOURNAL: THE JOURNAL AND MEMOIR OF FATHER LEON DOUCET O.M.I. 1868 TO 1890

These changes included the spread of devastating disease epidemics, the decline of bison populations, the end of the fur trade economy, the establishment of Canadian sovereignty, the signing of treaties, and the creation of First Nationsreserves, and the transformation of the landscape into an agricultural west. A keen observer, Doucet recorded significant ethnographic, geographic, genealogical, faunal, floral, and meteorological details and events.

NEVER MARRY AN ENGLISHMAN

In 1899, the Counterfeit Circulation Company Limited is formed to forge Canadian $2.00 notes in Boston, Massachusetts and transport them to Nova Scotia for distribution. In Halifax, Laura Davis begins her litany to her daughters to never marry an Englishman, as a result of her husband Lewis' complicity in the counterfeiting scheme and his affair with another woman. Drawn into the illegal enterprise by his financial and marital difficulties, Lewis William Davis finds himself as the principal of the Boston group formed to print the 1897 Canadian banknotes. Using the daily notes of United States Secret Service agent Owen Owen, which were uncovered by the popular television show Ancestors in the Attic, as well as newspaper accounts of that time period, "Never Marry an Englishman" tells the story of Lewis William Davis' attempt to become richer from his counterfeiting skills and of agent Owen Owen's attempt to capture him.

NO WAY BACK HOME

The Unexpected Life of a Czech Family in India (1938-1977)

 

In 1938, when faced with a decision to work at a shoe company in India or stay in Czechoslovakia and wait for another war, Miki Hruska s newly married parents opted to move, thinking they would return home in a few years. But they would not be able to return  home  for another four decades; instead, home became Calcutta, where they raised their family and established a business during a parade of turbulent social and political events. The ill-planned departure of the British from India and their bungled attempts at Partition engendered riots and killings that brought bloodshed to the family s front door. And when the Communists took over the government of West Bengal, they brought labour disruptions that made it next to impossible to operate the family business. This riveting family memoir is set during the cataclysmic events of WWII and its aftermath, giving a harrowing yet heartwarming portrait of life for a migrant Czech family and showing how perseverance and love can sustain people through the darkest of times.

OLD STRATHCONA EDMONTON'S SOUTHSIDE ROOTS

"Old Strathcona: Edmonton's Southside Roots" by Monto is an extensively researched chronological history of southside Edmonton, once the separate city of Strathcona, from its start as a scattering of Metis/Indian pioneer cabins in the 1870s to a bustling commercial/industrial/residential section of the City of Edmonton prior to the downturn of the 1930s. Bound together with "Metis Strathcona" by Lawrence, a ground-breaking essay on the roots of Strathcona, which delineates the Metis identity of many of its earliest pioneers and the Metis pioneers' connection with the area's Papaschase Indian band, which was subsequently thoroughly dispossessed.
