Hardcover 1st edition - Some shelf and edgewear,gift inscription as well some age toning, otherwise a good clean solid copy. Dust jacket is rubbed,& chipped, but otherwise still a good solid copy. The railway has been many things to a lot of different people: a lifeline, a party, an adventure. Although you may still be able to travel on a few of the trains featured in Sentimental Journey (the Newfie Bullet, the Peg, the Prince George Eventually) many live on only in the memories of railwaymen and passengers, hooligans and honeymooners, young and old alike. Illustrated with many vintage and current photographs, Sentimental Journey brings to life, in nostalgic and entertaining oral history, the many faces of train travel in Canada. From the days when the dining cars were the ultimate in sophistication, advertised throughout North America and Europe, to memorable events of more recent times, such as the Mississauga derailment, Sentimental Journey is sure to delight anyone who has traveled, or has dreamed of traveling, on the famous trains of Canada.

The maritime Rights Movement, 1919-1927

Soft Cover
Fair





Rescued from a high school library, usual stamps and stickers, covers are worn and some pages are loose... but still perfectly readable and acceptable as a reference copy of this distinctive work. From the publisher:"Maritimers saw their political influence reduced, the underpinnings of their economy - especially in the critical areas of tariffs, freight rates, and subsidies - whittled away, and Canada defined in terms that seemed to exclude them. Adopting a strategy characteristic of the progressive movements of the period, they attempted through organization and agitation to restore their position. Farmers, fishermen, manufacturers, and organized labour articulated their demands through the provincial press, boards of trade, union locals, educational conferences, and mass delegations to Ottawa. Professor Forbes challenges traditional assumptions in his emphasis upon a vigorous Maritime progressivism that transcended party affiliations. All the political parties tried to use the protest movement, but none had created it, nor had it a specific founder or leader. The agitiation was in fact a spontaneous expression of the economic and social frustrations of the Maritime people. Although their efforts were largely defeated by the conflicting interests of stronger regions, and by the King government's adoitness in defusing protest through a policy of study and delay, the author believes that the aroused Maritimers had succeeded in establishing their difficulties in the public's mind as a national problem."
