101 Jean-Pierre Léaud (Actor), Claude Jade (Actor), François Truffaut (Director, Writer) The Adventures of Antoine Doinel [5 Discs] [Import] including book
B00008H2GR 
5 dvd set plus booklet Box is made to look like an old suitcase it is not all worn. Product Description The release of François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows (Les Quatre cents coups) in 1959 shook world cinema to its foundations. The now-classic portrait of troubled adolescence introduced a major new director in the cinematic landscape and was an inaugural gesture of the revolutionary French New Wave. But The 400 Blows did not only introduce the world to its precocious director—it also unveiled his indelible creation: Antoine Doinel. Initially patterned closely after Truffaut himself, the Doinel character (played by the irrepressible and iconic Jean-Pierre Léaud) reappeared in four subsequent films that knowingly portrayed his myriad frustrations and romantic entanglements from his stormy teens through marriage, children, divorce, and adulthood. With The Adventures of Antoine Doinel, Criterion is proud to present Truffaut’s celebrated saga in its entirety: the feature films The 400 Blows, Stolen Kisses, Bed and Board, and Love on the Run, and the 1962 short subject, Antoine and Colette, in a special edition five-disc box set.

1848890249 pbk 
Lighthouses have played an important role on Ireland's extensive and dramatic coastline since the fifth century, lighting the way for many a cargo and passenger ship while ensuring that those who made their living on the sea made it home safely. During a project that lasted over ten years, John Eagle made several daring boat and helicopter trips to capture unique images of these wind-swept, wave-lashed buildings. This book brings together these striking photographs with informative text on their details, locations, and how to find them. Ireland's Lighthouses is sure to delight all those fascinated by these isolated guardians of the coast. "[A] splendid volume." Irish Echo

136 Meadows, Al with S C Heal Pushing the Beach The Story of Marine Link Transportation and the MV Aurora Explorer
Cordillera 2015 1895590442 2nd softcover new 
new. colour edition. Story of Marine Link Transportation and the Aurora Explorer makes for a fascinating read. The story of Marine Link Transportation and its founding partners is one of incredible perseverance. Alan Meadows, a troll fisherman and then a young man living in Victoria, established a fledgling business that hit the boom in herring row exports for the Japanese market at just the right time. His account of acting as a buyer and collector for a herring processor is almost hilarious as he carried a fortune in dollar bills on his person that sometimes reached $750,000 in paper money. Soon after this traffic started, he met Tim Campbell, another commercial fisherman from Sidney, B.C., who proved his worth to their joint venture. Meadows, the man of vision and ideas with an insatiable appetite for business development was matched by Campbell, the practical hands-on engineer who could fix anything and found pragmatic solutions to almost everything. Photo above: Cover of Pushing the Beach, a new book by S.C. Heal. Pushing the Beach, a newly published book written by Alan H. Meadows and S.C. Heal (author of 25 marine books and frequent contributor to BC Shipping News), follows the trials and tribulations of Marine Link Transportation through the early start up years of handling herring straight off the fish boat and onto Marine Link I and through the growth of their fleet, including the story behind the Aurora Explorer and her unique conversion to a hybrid working freight barge / passenger vessel where up to 12 people could sample the working coast, a concept totally opposite to the luxury cruise liner slogans. The story of how they found the Aurora Explorer in Northern Alberta and had her delivered to Campbell River via the Mackenzie river system, Tuktoyaktuk, Cape Barrow and down through the Bering Sea and across the Gulf of Alaska is an epic in itself and is fully described along with a map of her journey. In addition to the ever-expanding fleet, Marine Link Transportation’s land acquisitions are no less entertaining — from operating a busy terminal at Campbell River spit to the acquisition of strategic acreage with several hundred feet of waterfront at Menzies Bay from MacMillan Bloedel just before that company was acquired by Weyerhaeuser of Tacoma, U.S. Here, they have developed their own terminal as a secure home base and provide space for others with full facilities for wharfage, warehousing and storage. Repair work is undertaken on site by Campbell River Marine Terminal’s associate business, Ripple Rock Repairs. Written in an intimate way, warts and all, the book is not only entertaining and historical, but also expresses a great deal of wisdom and lots of hands on experience of value to both laymen and professional operators. This large-format book (8.5 by 11 inches) contains over 200 pages plus more than 220 photos.

171 Sarah Hepola Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget
1455554588 pbk 
For Sarah Hepola, alcohol was "the gasoline of all adventure." She spent her evenings at cocktail parties and dark bars where she proudly stayed till last call. Drinking felt like freedom, part of her birthright as a strong, enlightened twenty-first-century woman. But there was a price. She often blacked out, waking up with a blank space where four hours should be. Mornings became detective work on her own life. What did I say last night? How did I meet that guy? She apologized for things she couldn't remember doing, as though she were cleaning up after an evil twin. Publicly, she covered her shame with self-deprecating jokes, and her career flourished, but as the blackouts accumulated, she could no longer avoid a sinking truth. The fuel she thought she needed was draining her spirit instead. A memoir of unblinking honesty and poignant, laugh-out-loud humor, BLACKOUT is the story of a woman stumbling into a new kind of adventure--the sober life she never wanted. Shining a light into her blackouts, she discovers the person she buried, as well as the confidence, intimacy, and creativity she once believed came only from a bottle. Her tale will resonate with anyone who has been forced to reinvent or struggled in the face of necessary change. It's about giving up the thing you cherish most--but getting yourself back in return.

174 Shimizu, Dr Henry Images of Internment
softcover good 
In 1999, 12 friends met for dinner at my sister Grace Sakamoto’s home in Toronto. After dinner we had a frank discussion about our experiences in the New Denver Internment Camp, during 1942-1946.The consensus was a bitter/sweet episode in our lives , but with a major influence on our future career and live style. Following this meeting, I painted 27 oil paintings about my impressions of the life style of teenagers in the Internment Camp in New Denver , 1942-1946. The paintings were completed in 2002. An Opening exhibit of the paintings with explanatory panels was held at the Edmonton Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre on March 23, 2002 – exactly 60 years from the day we left Prince Rupert to begin our internment. In the summer of 2008, this book was created, using the paintings with stories and to complete the story, a prologue and an epilogue.

199 Webb, Jeff A Observing the Outports
1442628944 pbk good 
some light marginalia in pencil The years after Newfoundland’s confederation with Canada were ones of rapid social and economic change, as provincial resettlement and industrialization initiatives attempted to transform the lives of rural Newfoundlanders. At Memorial University in St. John’s, a new generation of faculty saw the province’s transformation as a critical moment. Some hoped to solve the challenges of modernization through their rural research. Others hoped to document the island’s “traditional” culture before it disappeared. Between them they created the field of “Newfoundland studies.” In Observing the Outports, Jeff A. Webb illustrates how interdisciplinary collaborations among scholars of lexicography, history, folklore, anthropology, sociology, and geography laid the foundation of our understanding of Newfoundland society in an era of modernization. His extensive archival research and oral history interviews illuminate how scholars at Memorial University created an intellectual movement that paralleled the province’s cultural revival.
