Original reddish-brown cloth on boards. Cover title rubbed. No writing except "1946, Christmas Greetings, Bill Kotchapaw "(signed).

Original brown cloth on boards. Paper labels cover and spine. Godwin is an interesting figure who came from England to Canada, tried farming for four years, and then returned to England just in time to take part in Vimy, following which he was invalided out. Entering the practice of law, he spent the rest of his life between it and writing. This book is full of short, pithy statements pointedly, but briefly substantiated before the next subject is broached. Made me want to dig deeper. Minor joint abrasion and tiny cover spots. No writing or other damage. 95 pp. plus a long catalog. View more info

Edition: Reprint

Seller ID: 010475

ISBN: 0-7710-3352-4

Condition: Very Good


Black cloth on boards. No writing or damage. I would have changed the title to "The Way it Worked for Me" in light of the apparent fact that much, if not most, of what happens in politics is based upon the merger or collision of personalities, as opposed to the intellectual consideration of issues. At any rate, anyone who lasts 30 years in such an important environment must have something worthwhile to contribute, even though it were by default. 402 pp. View more info

ISBN: 0-88778-079-2

Condition: Very Good


Brown cloth on boards. Edited and with an introduction by David Zimmerly. Reading the first half of this book was a real eye-opener. I thought my life growing up in the country had been difficult, but it now seems as little compared with Mrs. Goudie's experiences. Even my five years in the mountains of B.C. were a picnic in comparison. If you don't mind the sentence structure you can learn a lot from this book. No writing. DJ is torn halfway up one side..163 pp. View more info
