Books Description:

The most prejudiced will not deny that Paris is beautiful; or that there is about her streets and broad, tree-lined avenues a graciousness at once dignified and gay. Stand, as the ordinary tourist does on his first day, in the flowering square before the Louvre; in the foreground are the fountains and bright tulip-bordered paths of the Tuileries-here a glint of gold, there a soft flash of marble statuary, shining through the trees... -from "The City Beautiful," by Anne Warwick From the era from a trip to the Continent was rarer but more deeply appreciated comes an enchanting literary travelogue assembled from the hearts and minds of some of the greatest wordsmiths in the English language. A Grand Tour in 10 volumes, these delightful volumes, first published in 1914, gather little-seen essays from famous erudite explorers in compact collections that will inspire those who've never been abroad to make the journey, and move those who have to pack their bags again. Volume III explores France and the Netherlands, viewed through the eyes and prose of a panoply of extraordinary writers: Victor Hugo waxes rhapsodic on the cathedral at Notre-Dame, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow visits the P re La Chaise, Charles Dickens journeys to the papal palace at Avignon, and much more by such notable voices as Augustus J.C. Hare, William Makepeace Thackeray, and others. Beautifully illustrated with charming photographs, it is a work to treasure... and to take along on your next trip.

Books Description:

Flying Canucks tells the fascinating story of aviation in Canada through this collection of 37 biographies of important aviators in our nation's history. As early as 1908, having read the Wright brothers' invention, alberta farm boys and mechanics in Quebec villages were constructing large kites, attempting to fly them. Within a decade, Canadian air aces, like Bishop and Barker, swept the wartime skies over Frances, piloting deadly machines in mortal combat. Through the 20s, that very Canadian breed of adventurer, the bush pilot, ventured over the desolate tundra, delivering medicine and missionaries, mail and Mounties to remote communities as far as Ellesmere Island and Ungava Bay. Members of the Royal Canadian Air Force fought with distinction during the Second world War. Titles such as The Saviour of London and The Angel of Ceylon seem like wartime hype, but the skill and courage that those pilots displayed half a century ago set them apart still. For the six Canadian airmen who won the Victoria Cross, there were thousands who flew into the meat grinder that was the Allies' strategic air offensive over Europe. This book chronicles the exploits of only a few men and women -- but it truly celebrates the spirit and resolve of countless brave Canadians who are proud part of aviation in this country.
