As a successful London tobacconist in the early 1900s, Alfred Dunhill’s passion for his field led him to begin collecting pipes from all over the world. From his collection he created The Pipe Book, which was first printed in 1924 and has rarely been out of print since. The book is a thorough exploration of every type of pipe—primitive mounds and earthen pipes; more elegant models of ivory, clay, and porcelain; and of course modern briers, cobs, and meerschaums—with in-depth explanations of their uses, structures, and origins, as well as fascinating anthropological discussions on smoking in various cultures.

The Boy, the Bear and the Pipe! is the fourth adventure story in the series Tales from the Masawani Game Park. This book is dedicated to the consciousness of water as described by the late Dr. Maseru Emoto in his books The Hidden Message in Water and The Secret Life of Water. As Dr. Emoto wrote, “Water has a memory and carries within it our thoughts and prayers. As you yourself are water, no matter where you are, your prayers will be carried to the rest of the world.” May we all show our gratitude for the work that water does for our bodies and our planet! This story is written for my serious nephew Matthew. Matthew’s belief in a loving creator has taken him a long way in his life. He is always at the forefront of caring for the citizens of this planet. He is generous and amusing, with a wry sense of humour. I am proud to be his aunt! Matthew’s first trip to Canada starts off with a sighting of the mythical creature known in Canadian culture as a Sasquatch. This sighting catapults Matthew into the next part of the adventure when he purchases a medicine pipe for his brother. Unbeknownst to Matthew, the pipe is a recently discovered artefact of the Summer Indian Nation, which has been stolen from an archeological dig. The missing artefact attracts public attention, and soon he and his aunt are embroiled in the conflicting interest of good and evil.
