Download The Ranch on the Cariboo PDF Format Full Free by Alan Fry and published by TouchWood Editions. This book was released on 2011-02-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It was the summer of ’43 on a Cariboo ranch. He was 12 and had to become a man. If you were a man, you could become a cowboy. Join the author on this nostalgic look back on the joys, frustrations and observations of growing up and discovering where he belongs. Excerpt from Eldon Lee's foreword: “This book by Alan Fry is probably the best book ever written on ranch life in the Cariboo. His account of everyday events is so perceptive and so true to the mark that all we country types yearn to re-experience its joys, and its miseries. The Ranch on the Cariboo is a good book and while it may not make a pretty sight to the tractor jockeys, by damn it is authentic; I should know because I was raised on a similar ranch just 18 miles north.”

Book excerpt: British Columbia is blessed with spectacular beauty and diversity, from its coastal shores and temperate rainforests to the Rocky Mountains, from its southern deserts to the northern sub-Arctic tundra. This book will take you on a wondrous and extensive journey through British Columbia in all its seasons, divulging not only its varied landscapes, but displaying some of the abundantly rich nuances of plant and animal life, many existing nowhere else in Canada. The book will showcase rarely seen wildflowers, berries ready for the picking, as well as mushrooms, lichens, mosses, and ferns all fighting for light on the forest floors. It will unveil unique wildlife behaviour, colourfully painted insects, pesky rodents, stunning birdlife (and their lovably whimsical offspring), and a profusion of majestic land and marine mammals. Images of Vancouver and Victoria, as well as abandoned relics from the past returning to nature all complement British Columbia’s natural beauty, becoming essential to the inherent mosaic that defines this province. With its varied and wondrous landscapes, graced by its diversity of flora and fauna, British Columbia is arguably one of the most unique gems of this planet, all the while shouting out for its preservation. www.frank-townsley.pixels.com

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Valerie Green and Lynn Gordon-Findlay have put their ears to the walls of Vancouver Island's historic homes and transcribed the whispered secrets of bygone days when folk of every description left their echoes in the buildings where they lived, worked, played, and died. If the walls of a venerable mansion could speak, what stories would it tell? How about that rustic shack farther down the road? In her first book, If These Walls Could Talk, Valerie Green explored 50 heritage homes in the Greater Victoria area. In this second volume, she ranges further afield, covering Greater Victoria and Southern Vancouver Island, Duncan and the Cowichan Valley, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Parksville, Qualicum Beach, Courtney and District, and Campbell River and the North Island, including homes in Telegraph Cove and Port McNeill. Each home tells of a way of life long past, of people who dwelt within its walls, when and how it was built, or how it is historically significant. Once again, Valerie's text is complemented by architectural artist Lynn Gordon-Findlay's exquisite drawings.

Book excerpt: From Shakespeare to cop shows, sitcoms to docudramas, for over three decades the CBC has presented viewers with every variety of television drama and has become Canada's closest equivalent to a national theatre. Turn Up the Contrast is the first book to explore the content of Canadian television drama and is both a critical analysis and a survey history of how Canadians have used the medium to tell themselves their own stories. As a part of her research, Mary Jane Miller watched thousands of hours of television, sampling series and viewing in their entirety shorter programs such as movies and mini-series. Asking a variety of questions, she selected a number of programs for detailed analysis, and devotees of The Beachcombers, King of Kensington, Seeing Things, Cariboo Country, Wojeck or A Gift to Last will be pleased to find their favourites among those discussed at length.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In British Columbia by the Road, Ben Bradley takes readers on an unprecedented journey through the history of roads, highways, and motoring in British Columbia’s Interior, a remote landscape composed of plateaus and interlocking valleys, soaring mountains and treacherous passes. Challenging the idea that the automobile offered travellers the freedom of the road and a view of unadulterated nature, Bradley shows that boosters, businessmen, conservationists, and public servants manipulated what drivers and passengers could and should view from the comfort of their vehicles. Although cars and roads promised freedom, they offered drivers a curated view of the landscape that shaped the province’s image in the eyes of residents and visitors alike.
