Featured Children's Book - "Louis Riel Day"See more
From time to time, we are going to try and feature some of the growing number of great new juvenile titles that are showing up in our shop.  In 2021, we are also trying to feature more local authors.  With "Louis Riel Day" by Deborah L Delaronde, we get to do both.

Beautifully accompanied by Sheldon Dawson's illustrations, Delaronde's poem is a wonderful introduction to the Fur Trade for children of any age.  More importantly, it also presents critical information about the Metis peoples, Louis Riel, and the importance of both to the development of the province of Manitoba & Western Canada.  

Released in time for long weekend that bears its name, "Louis Riel Day" will hopefully find its way onto your shelves, especially in a year where more public gatherings to celebrate the founder of the province will be difficult.

Featured Non-Mystery - Children of Ash and ElmSee more
There is something about winter that brings Canadians to images of warm fires, soft blankets and thick books.  There is also something about Vikings that evokes frost, cold, and darkness.  For our winter non-fiction feature, therefore, it seemed appropriate that we have choose "Children of Ash and Elm" by Neil Price.

This book is a thorough re-examination of both what the public and academia "know" about Vikings.  Drawing from archaeological and historical sources (some from much further afield than you would think), Dr Price challenges the perceptions of those Norse who moved out of Scandanavia and into the outside world.  He concisely (yes, even at 550 pages it is concise) and entertainingly moves through each chapter dispensing with old tropes and providing new details on a wide breadth of subject regarding these ancient peoples.  

Disclosure: Dr Price was the head of Archaeology when Michael was still a student at Aberdeen.  He is one of the leading proponents of the Collateral Biography theory Michael used in his PhD, and was the internal invigilator on his PhD defense.  

Agatha, obviouslySee more
Agatha Christie remains one of the best loved and most prolific authors of Crime fiction.  However, many of her books were published well before the advent of the ISBN and the barcode, which are used to hold data like cover art, etc on stores like ours.  As such, while you will find many of her books in our used section, they will not appear as images.  We have put a helpful list together here.  Just click on the little "See More" button above!
