This unique study explores how Quebec's landscapes have been represented in both literature and visual art throughout the centuries, from the writing of early explorers such as Cartier and Champlain to work by prominent contemporary authors and artists from the province. William J. Berg traces recurrent images and themes within these creations through the most significant periods in the development of a Quebecois identity that was threatened initially by the wilderness and indigenous populations, and later by the dominance of British and American influences. Focusing on the interplay between nature and culture in landscape representation, Literature and Painting in Quebec contends that both have reflected and fashioned the meaning of French-Canadian nationhood. As such, Literature and Painting in Quebec presents a new perspective to approach the notion of national identity, a quest that few groups have engaged in more persistently than the Quebecois.
Trophies of the Heart is the culmination of the most moving, memorable, and heartfelt hunting stories from the career of one of North America's greatest big game hunters. Thornberry takes us on hunts for the whole range of game the North American continent; however, the focus is on the hunts that had the greatest emotional impact because the greatest trophies of all are the memories that one keeps forever. Trophies of the Heart covers everything from his son's first hunt, to zany and wild stories of taking hunters out to guide. In the tradition of Peter Capstick's stories of the hunting world of Africa, Thornberry has a unique ability to give the reader insights into the hows and whys of big game hunting, while relating all of this in short story fashion.
"Locating information on women is difficult and the editors have done a fine job assembling and publishing information extant on individual women from many nations both living and dead. Because in some cases only birth, marriage, children, and death dates are known, the 10,000 articles vary in length according to the subject. If you haven't been able to answer reference questions on women, you need this set."--"Outstanding Reference Sources," American Libraries, May 2001.
