Everything under the Sun Toward a Brighter Future on a Small Blue Planet dav i d s u z u k i · i a n h a n i n gto n

A renowned scientist restores hope for a better future with his latest views on environmental challenges In this latest offering from David Suzuki, the well-known scientist, author, and broadcaster explores the interconnectedness of the world’s myriad environmental challenges. The solutions are there, he argues; we just need the will to act together to bring about change. Suzuki delves into such provocative topics as the difference between human hunters and other predators, our dependence on the sun, and what we must learn from Japan’s recent reactor meltdown. He also doesn’t avoid controversial opinion, especially when it comes to taking on those who stand in the way of resolving serious issues like climate change. Everything under the Sun includes telling facts and stats, the latest scientific findings, and examples of the positive actions people are taking today toward protecting what we have. Underpinning it all is the recognition that Earth gives us everything we require to live, under a sun that provides the energy to produce food, transport, and all of our modern conveniences. david suzuki is a Companion of the Order of Canada and a recipient of unesco’s Kalinga Prize for science, the United Nations Environment Program medal, and the 2009 Right Livelihood Award. Host of the longrunning cbc television program The Nature of Things, he is also the author of more than fifty books, including nineteen for children. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. ian hanington is a communications and editorial specialist for the David Suzuki Foundation. A former editor of the Georgia Straight, he has worked as a researcher, news reporter, critic, and editor for various publications and also teaches in the professional writing program at Douglas College in New Westminster, British Columbia.

Foreword by d r . d o u g c l e m e n t s m d

An updated and expanded edition of the bestselling guide—more than 80,000 copies sold Since it was first published in 1999, The Beginning Runner’s Handbook has helped more than 35,000 participants at community clinics across Canada—and thousands more runners around the world—realize their goal of running 10k. This easy-to-use, practical guide is completely updated in this fourth edition. It now includes a revised RunWalk program that gives runners a choice between running 10k or running and walking the distance, depending on their individual goals and fitness. Tried and tested by thousands of new and experienced runners, the thirteen-week program was developed as a training regimen for the Vancouver Sun Run by SportMedBC in conjunction with sport medicine doctors, therapists, nutritionists, and trainers. A new chapter on preparing for 10k events, including charity runs, reflects the popularity of getting fit while giving back to the community. Expanded and enhanced sections include cross­training options such as trail running, group fitness classes, and boot camp sessions as well as information on running through pregnancy. In this updated edition, there are facts about barefoot running, minimalist shoes, and links to online sources of information and running communities. health January 2012

The Bear’s Embrace A True Story of a Grizzly Bear Attack pat r i c i a v a n t i g h e m · Afterword by m a r g a r e t v a n t i g h e m

A national bestseller hailed as “a testimony of courage.” back in print

maclean’s On a sunny fall day in 1983, Patricia Van Tighem and her husband, Trevor Janz, were brutally attacked by a bear while hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Janz was severely hurt, but Van Tighem suffered even more serious, disfiguring injuries, and that she survived was a miracle. A gifted writer, Van Tighem crafted a vivid and startling account of the attack. But her recovery was just as disturbing. Her numerous reconstructive surgeries were painful; her facial disfigurement, including the loss of an eye, isolated her; and the nightmares that haunted her carried their own psychological burden. The Bear’s Embrace garnered much praise when it was first published, in 2000. With honesty and eloquence, the book tells of the unpredictability of life, of bravery, terror, rage, and love, of what it means to look and feel different in a culture that values perfection. Deeply moving and often astonishing, The Bear’s Embrace is an inspiring story of human perseverance and self-knowledge. Tragically, Van Tighem could no longer live with her pain and ended her life in 2005. In this new edition, her sister, Margaret Van Tighem, writes an affecting afterword remembering Patricia and her spirit and strength. biography & memoir

Polar Wives The Remarkable Women behind the World’s Most Daring Explorers k a r i h e r b e r t · Foreword by j o n b o w e r m a s t e r

The compelling stories of seven adventurous women Polar explorers were the superstars of the “heroic age” of exploration, a period spanning the Victorian and Edwardian eras. In this engaging book, author Kari Herbert explores the unpredictable, often heartbreaking lives of seven remarkable women whose husbands became world-famous for their Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. As the daughter of a polar explorer, Herbert brings a unique perspective to these stories. In her portraits of the gifted sculptor Kathleen Scott; eccentric traveller Jane Franklin; spirited poet Eleanor Anne Franklin; Jo Peary, the first white woman to travel and give birth in the High Arctic; talented and determined Emily Shackleton; Norwegian singer Eva Nansen; and her own mother, writer and pioneer Marie Herbert, Kari Herbert blends deeply personal accounts of longing, betrayal, and hope with stories of peril and adventure. Previously consigned to historical footholes, these women were vibrant, strong-willed individuals in their own right, playing essential roles in supporting, publicizing, defending, and even financing their husbands’ expeditions. Their stories take us not only to the polar wastelands but also through war­torn Macedonia, the lawless outback of Australia, and the plague-riddled ancient cities of the Holy Land.

Long Beach Wild A Celebration of People and Place on Canada’s Rugged Western Shore adrienne mason

An intimate look at Long Beach’s dramatic landscapes and colourful characters Each year, close to a million people visit the spectacular sweep of sand that stretches along Vancouver Island’s west coast between Tofino and Ucluelet. In Long Beach Wild, long-time resident Adrienne Mason uses her intimate knowledge of the area to explore the region’s rich natural and cultural history. Rarely seen archival photos as well as contemporary nature photography illustrate the interplay between the region’s wilderness and lively culture. Mason shows how Long Beach was shaped by many forces, including glaciers, torrents of water, and hurricane-force winds. She describes how First Nations people found inspiration and sustenance in the area for thousands of years, hunting whales on the open ocean using harpoons with mussel­shell blades and great lengths of cedar-bark rope. Mason also introduces some of the colourful characters who have found their way to “the end of the road” over the past 150 years—gold panners, loggers, w wii airmen, back­to­the­landers, surfers, artists, entrepreneurs, and dreamers. She spent many hours interviewing people who arrived at Long Beach and never left. Although now protected within the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, the Long Beach area is inevitably influenced by the countless visitors who flock there each year and the residents who call the region home. Long Beach Wild is a perfect visual gift for tourists, while its historical aspect will appeal to locals. adrienne mason has lived on Vancouver Island all her life and spent twenty years on its west coast, first in Bamfield and then Tofino. As well as writing a local history column for Tofino Time, she is the author of numerous books

Seeking Sickness Medical Screening and the Misguided Hunt for Disease alan cassels

Everything you need to know to make informed choices about medical screening. Medical screening for prostate cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and other serious diseases and conditions seem to make sense, and some types of screening are indeed useful if done on the right person at the right time. Many other such tests are questionable, however, and can even be harmful. Yet every day there are new claims of one medical screening test or another. In this book, Alan Cassels discusses the most common and recommended types of screening and weighs the pros and cons of each. Do mammograms save lives? Is a colonoscopy necessary for everyone? Is it worth it to fork out thousands of dollars for a whole-body scan? In addition to exploring these and other questions, Cassels discusses the role of practitioners and profiteers in selling us the mantra of “test early and test often.” This succinct yet authoritative guide cautions that we must go into any type of screening with our eyes wide open and gives us the tools and information we need to make informed decisions about medical screening. alan cassels is a drug policy researcher at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, and has lectured widely on medical media in Canada, health April 2012 Paperback cdn $16.95 51/2” x 81/2” · 160 pages Rights held: World, all languages 978-1-77100-032-1 Other Formats ebook: 978-1-77100-033-8

biography & memoir W

hy do many hunters feel most fully alive when they are hunting? How is the sport hunter different from the hunter who must kill game to survive? And do women who hunt differ from their male counterparts? These are a few of the questions that David Carpenter ponders as he describes what hunting has meant to him and to others in the past and today. The story of hunting in Carpenter’s own life forms the heart of the book. When he was a boy, Carpenter and his father and brother would head out along the side roads and into the sloughs of their Prairie home searching for duck, grouse, and partridge. Later, hunting became a way to ward off depression. In the end, as a result of a dramatic experience after shooting a grouse, Carpenter gave up hunting for good. Winding through this deeply personal and engaging narrative is Carpenter’s exploration of the history of hunting, subsistence hunting versus hunting for sport, the indifference of some hunters to the plight of wildlife, and the meaning of the hunt for those who have written about it most eloquently. Along the way, Carpenter beautifully evokes the sensual pleasure of holding a gun, the intense relationship between the animals and their pursuers, and perhaps most of all, the transcendent joy of hunting. Finally, he poignantly conveys how for him animals have been transformed from objects of hunting into objects of wonder.

“A sterling hunting memoir that abides love for all creatures—including the human one.” richard ford

author of Grizzlyville

books of fiction, including Niceman Cometh

trevor herriot

Steve Burgess

author of Grass, Sky, Song

and Welcome to Canada, and two nonfiction

books, Fishing in Western Canada and Courting Saskatchewan. His fiction and his essays have won seven literary awards. He lives and writes in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. A deeply personal narrative and wide-ranging exploration of hunting—why many hunters feel most fully alive when they are hunting, how sport hunters differ from subsistence hunters, what connects aboriginal hunters to non-aboriginal hunters, and why so many hunters, including David Carpenter, inevitably give up the hunt for good.
