This is the true story of a Short-eared Owl that plummeted onto the deck of an oil rig in the North Sea, one hundred miles from shore. Weak and tired, it huddled on the deck until riggers provided it with a makeshift shelter and fresh meat to eat. When a helicopter arrived to transport some of the workers back home, they took the owl with them, handing it over to the Scottish SPCA. A few weeks later the owl was strong enough to be released into the countryside. Susan Vande Griek's gentle prose poem describes this unusual encounter with a creature from the wild with curiosity and wonder. Ian Wallace's stunning watercolors show gorgeous seascapes, the subtle beauty of the owl, and the oil rig and its workers, creating compelling visual contrasts. An author's note includes information about the Short-eared Owl, a bird found in the Americas, Europe and Asia, whose numbers may be in decline due to loss of habitat.

Ian Wallace, one of Canada's best-known children's book creators, invites us to look inside his cabinet of curiosities, which contains treasures from his decades of traveling the country from sea to sea to sea, sharing stories with young readers. Over the past forty years, Ian Wallace has made thousands of school and library visits in tiny communities, towns and huge cities all across this land. Some of these visits have inspired young readers to become artists themselves; others have moved children to speak or act in new ways; others have simply given rise to the laughter and sheer delight that come from a good book. In return, Ian has been the recipient of many gifts himself, from the wide range of experiences he has had to the mementos made by young children or artists in the communities he has visited. All these gifts come together in his cabinet of curiosities - an eclectic and personal collection that nonetheless represents and appreciates our rich and varied land. Each double-page illustration shows a shelf in the cabinet dedicated to a province or territory with the gifts or special memories Ian has from that place - tamarack geese made by Cree artists in northern Ontario, a fishing-stage facade from Newfoundland, the giant redwoods in Cathedral Grove on Vancouver Island, and much more. Always experimenting with new techniques, Ian has illustrated the entire book in delicate graphite pencil, achieving stunning light and shadow. This is a beautiful and unusual contribution to Canada's 150th birthday. Includes an introduction and notes on the illustrations.

In 1955, the first documenta took place in Kassel. Originally planned as a one-time exhibition, it now takes place every five years and has become a primary periodic moment of exhibition and reflection on contemporary art. In this 1987 lecture, held at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Ian Wallace sheds light on the first documenta. After World War II, the exhibition followed the aim to represent and rehabilitate those artists who had been vilified as "degenerate" by the National Socialist regime. The first documenta is a mirror and protagonist of the postwar cultural and political climate. Under the guidance of Arnold Bode, and with the help of Werner Haftmann, it has notably contributed to what has been called "the triumphal march of abstraction," which helped West-Germany to reintegrate itself into European modernity.

Ian Wallace Campbell
R128 Discovery Miles 1 280 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Vendange is the French word for harvesting wine - these short stories are 'grape-pickers stories. Very few people are fortunate enough to be mentored in fine wine. I was lucky and the instruction I received over many French lunches and dinners opened my eyes to the complexities of fine wine and how the choice of the right wine for a particular dish elevates the experience from mere grazing to hedonistic delights. I wanted to learn more about wine and decided to go and make the vendange in what is arguably one of the finest areas of wine in the world - the Haut Medoc - north of Bordeaux. What started as a 'one off' visit turned into an annual pilgrimage covering seven years during which I found out everything I wanted to about the subject. Vendange isn't a dry book about the wine making process, though - more a collection of amusing and informative anecdotes gathered in my pannier along the way. It started in the autumn of 1979 and finished in 1986 and during that time, the wine industry changed forever. I was lucky enough to witness the changes. 4.0 out of 5 stars Rattling Good Read 10 Dec 2013 By Artful Dodger Format: Kindle EditionAmazon Verified Purchase "Ian has put together a fine collection of anecdotes and memoirs from his working life and more specifically from his time spent working on a French vinery where he brings alive his new found love and rapidly growing knowledge of French wine and the industry behind it. During a previous French business venture, Ian finds a willing Frenchman to pass on his knowledge and he soon finds himself getting to grips with the subtleties of wine and how to select the correct wine to go with almost any gastronomic experience, determining that some wines will compliment say meat or fish dish whereas others actually detract from it; quite an art form From there on he determines to expand his knowledge further with a working holiday at a vineyard helping to make a vintage or vendange'. I should add that all of this is recounted in a most amusing fashion and even if you are not at all interested in wines or vineyards you will still find this book hard to put down as Ian keeps the flow and interest going throughout. My only slight annoyance was that I came across a few typos early on in the book but this is a very minor complaint. All in all this is a highly recommended read and I look forward to more tales from Ian's interesting and varied working life." 4.0 out of 5 stars Raise your glasses, please 7 Dec 2013 By Karen Guttridge Format: Kindle EditionAmazon Verified Purchase "It never ceases to amaze me how the humble grape can be the source of such a glorious drink This selection of related short stories and anecdotes describe the personal experiences of the author whilst taking part in the grape harvests or les vendanges in France. The book does not attempt to broadly cover life in France but instead focuses fully on the daily life of the workers, most of whom live on site during the harvest period where meals are also provided. We learn of the general camaraderie amongst the grape pickers as they endure the back-breaking work of toiling in the vines for hours each day. The book contains many humorous moments and I also very much enjoyed the interesting wine-related facts sprinkled throughout the book which were mostly unknown to me."

Ian Campbell is a retired Math teacher, journalist, author and photographer. At school he was the founder of the school's photomicrographical society and made money from the school by copying the biology slides on to 35mm film ransparencies so that the whole class could see the slides at the same time without having to queue for the microscope. Years later, when teaching math, he realised that different people learn in different ways. Some learn by rote; others visually. Many people are scared by the words used in the subject... long words like 'common denominator'... scary eh? This book will teach you how to do fractions, without the jargon using a simple visual method. It doesn't matter how you learn. It only matters that you learn

Tom Pascoe, his partner Sam and an ex detective inspector and his wife stumble across a brutal ritual murder near to their holiday center in the south of France. Intrigued by the fact that the victim was a young British student and unconvinced by the description of the act as 'suicide' by the local police, the unlikely quartet investigate for themselves. What they discover as they retrace the victim's footsteps leads them inexorably into ancient customs and civilizations unknown to Man and to incredible riches. It also makes them targets for government agencies who don't want the truth to be known. Pentagon Five is an adventure story with esoteric roots. The characters are fictional; the plot is semi-fictional but many of the events and references are all too real. As to the denouement, that is still to come.

R353 Discovery Miles 3 530 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Canterbury, UK, mid 1980's Tom Pascoe, nearly 40 years old has made mistakes throughout his life and like most of us has got away with them. The one he didn't get away with was his wife. His mistake was letting himself get talked into a loveless marriage with his wife spending their money faster than he could earn it, but that in itself is not so extraordinary these days. Neither is the husband or wife having an affair on the side. However, people usually don't do it under the nose of their significant 'other'. Theresa Pascoe, Tom's 30 something wife had pestered him for ages about having a party for her friends, because she wanted to show-off their period piece of real estate located a few miles outside the Cathedral city of Canterbury in Kent, UK. So, a few months earlier, Pascoe thrown the party one summer weekend. All had gone fine with Pascoe playing the part of genial host up to the moment that he realised Theresa was nowhere to be seen and being a upset by her absence, he went looking for her. He searched everywhere but eventually discovered her in their bedroom, being shagged silly by one of his work colleagues and this is where his problems began. Pascoe was of mixed British and American parentage and the calm rational side of his personality would normally be in control, but finding your wife being screwed by a colleague in your own home with friends in attendance doesn't quite fit into 'normal' and that's where the more rumbustious American side of his psyche took over. This side didn't think so much as act and Pascoe just went ape and bundled the pair of them semi-naked out into the road and threw their clothes out after them. I guess most of the guys reading this will think he did the right thing and that he was more than justified in his actions. WRONG Pascoe had forgotten the fury of a wronged woman. His wife didn't take the humiliation lying down... at least not with her husband. She had retaliated by obtaining a new credit card, running up debts of more than 18,000 or more than $30,000 at the time and because her initials were exactly the same as her husband's, Pascoe got saddled with the huge debt which he had no possibility of meeting. Of course, he distanced himself from her; started divorce proceedings (more money) and made announcements in the local press that he would no longer be responsible for his wife's debts but when he checked with a lawyer friend from his schooldays, it was explained to him that he was responsible for them and that he either had to pay up or file for bankruptcy. He couldn't pay and he couldn't afford to go bankrupt. Pascoe needed another way out and as chance would have it, the alternative also came from his lawyer friend although somewhat unintentionally when he mentioned a practical joke that Pascoe had played on his school friends during his last week of the final term when, using the facilities of the school's printing club, he had invented his own exam paper and had had 130 boys kept in school on a Saturday afternoon to sit it. They were not amused when they found out that he had wasted their free time but he just saw it as his revenge for all the bullying he had withstood during his years at the school. The day after meeting his lawyer, Pascoe had visited London to re-charge his batteries. Again chance had taken a hand and brought his meanderings to the very shop where his school had purchased its printing equipment. Later, on his way back to Victoria station he had stopped off at The Cheshire Cheese pub in Fleet Street where he bumped into an 'old boy' from his school; someone who used the old school tie routine to effect. Surprisingly, during their conversation, Pascoe's practical joke was also mentioned. Pascoe remembered an adage from James Bond... "once happenstance; twice, coincidence; three times, enemy action' and he knew at once how he would climb his way out of the hole he found himself in. He would invent his own bank

This volume contains a selection from the proceedings of a conference organised by the International Feuchtwanger Society titled 'To Stay or not to Stay? German-speaking Exiles in Southern California after 1945'. The conference, held in September 2011 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and at Villa Aurora in Pacific Palisades, explored the decision faced by all German-speaking exiles in Southern California at the end of World War II whether to return to Europe or stay in the United States. The volume opens with an analysis of the experiences of post-1945 remigrants as reflected in a major exile publication, Der Aufbau. Six chapters focus on the particular case of Lion Feuchtwanger, illuminating the circumstances which led him to remain in California after 1945. Subsequent chapters throw fresh light on other members of the German-speaking literary community in California. Studies focusing on remigration from the UK and the Soviet Union widen the discussion, as do chapters on the problems faced by professional musicians exiled in East Asia and in Palestine. The volume concludes with the experience of remigrants in the media and film industry during the early post-war years.

Sechs Kapitel haben den speziellen Fall Lion Feuchtwangers zum Thema und untersuchen die Umstande, welche zu seiner Entscheidung fuhrten, nach 1945 in Kalifornien zu bleiben.

Untersuchungen zur Remigration aus England und aus der Sowjetunion sowie zu den Problemen exilierter Musiker in Ostasien und Palastina erweitern und erganzen die Diskussion.

This volume contains a selection of the proceedings of a conference organised by the International Feuchtwanger Society entitled 'Feuchtwanger and Film'. The conference took place in September 2007 at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and at Villa Aurora in Pacific Palisades to explore the link between literature and film, focusing especially on the work of Lion Feuchtwanger. The book opens with three chapters that analyse Feuchtwanger's novel Goya and in particular the powerful film which the East German director, Konrad Wolf, made for DEFA. A second section throws fresh light on another novel, Jud Suss, and the notorious Nazi film of the same name. The book then switches attention to the filming of Feuchtwanger's works by East German television, particularly Die Bruder Lautensack, before opening a window on Feuchtwanger's immense reputation in Russia with a study of Grigori Roshal's film Sem'ia Oppengeim (1939), based on the novel Die Geschwister Oppenheim (1933). A later section discusses the 'filmic' qualities which characterise much of Feuchtwanger's oeuvre, while a final part widens the debate with an investigation of three other emigre authors and their involvement with DEFA (Arnold Zweig) and Hollywood (Franz Werfel and Anna Seghers). The volume concludes with a report on 'Feuchtwanger Relaunched', a web-based project designed to inform media interest in Feuchtwanger's life and work. Dieser Band beinhaltet ausgewahlte Vortrage, die auf einer Konferenz der Internationalen Feuchtwanger Gesellschaft zum Thema "Feuchtwanger und Film" gehalten wurden.

Im Mittelpunkt der Konferenz standen die Verknupfungen von Literatur und Film, mit besonderer Berucksichtigung des Werkes von Lion Feuchtwanger. Die ersten drei Kapitel des Bandes sind der Analyse von Feuchtwangers Roman Goya gewidmet und der bekannten Verfilmung des Romanes durch Konrad Wolf fur die DEFA. Im zweiten Teil des Buches werden ein anderer Roman Feuchtwangers, Jud Suss, und der bekannte Nazi-Film gleichen Namens in ein neues Licht geruckt. Es folgen Beitrage zu Verfilmungen von Feuchtwanger-Stoffen durch das Fernsehen der DDR, besonders sei hier die Verfilmung Die Bruder Lautensack genannt, sowie - anhand einer Studie uber Grigori Roshals Film Sem'ia Oppengeim (1939), einer Adaption des Romans Die Geschwister Oppenheim (1933) - zu Feuchtwangers grossem Erfolg in Russland. Ein weiterer Abschnitt des Bandes beschaftigt sich mit den "filmischen" Qualitaten, welche sich durch Feuchtwangers oeuvre ziehen.

When a drought spreads through the land of the short grass, the animals set out across the great plain to find food. Their only hope for survival is a tree with a variety of colorful fruit. The problem is its branches are too high. To reach them, the wise old turtle says, one must know the name of the tree, something only King Lion is privy to. In this Bantu folktale retold by Celia Barker Lottridge, the hero is not the most cunning or the strongest but the one that tries the hardest.

Merna was married to the owner of Gully's store. Located on the main street of a small town on the ocean shore, Gully's sells everything from shoes, to wax, to matches, to rain gear. A little girl, Mavis, would like to buy everything in the store.
But when Merna's husband suddenly dies, she holds a wake in the store, then closes it down indefinitely. Mavis's parents speculate that Merna must have inherited a fortune. Mavis goes over to Merna's house to see if she can spot evidence of this fortune. But instead of finding money she finds a lifelong friendship. Finally after many years, Mavis and Merna re-open Gully's which has now become almost a museum of wonders.
This touching, gentle story of loss and the healing power of friendship and life in a small town is Ian Wallace at his finest.
