November 17 - Russell Books

They've done such a nice job with the renovation, Russell Books: they've gotten out of the way, and there's just a vast amount of room for books. After a great lunch at the Pink Bicycle yesterday (chanterelles and swiss on Vancouver Island beef), there was a detour to Russell Books -- new unless otherwise noted:
  • Pamela Banting, ed., Fresh Tracks: Writing the Western Landscape ($9.99)
  • Bruce Barcott, ed., Northwest Passages: A Literary Anthology of the Pacific Northwest, from Coyote Tales to Roadside Attractions ($9.99)
  • Mark Hume, The Run of the River: Portraits of Eleven British Columbia Rivers ($7.99)
  • CS Lewis, Voyage of the Dawn Treader ($3.99 used, the right edition to fill out the boxed set I picked up some time ago)
  • Bill McKibben, The Age of Missing Information ($9.99: McKibben watched all 24 hours of programming from all 93 cable channels available in Fairfax, Virginia, on May 3, 1990, and in this book sets what he learned in that "day" against what he learned from a day of camping about a week later)
  • Carolyn Merchant, The Death of Nature: Women, Ecology, and the Scientific Revolution ($9.99 -- "how the scientific revolution sanctioned the exploitation of nature, commercial expansion, and the subjugation of women," as the blurb puts it)
  • Harry Robinson (with Wendy Wickwire), Nature Power: In the Spirit of an Okanagan Storyteller ($7.99)
  • Sound Heritage IV.2 (1975), special issue on Aural History, Regional Studies and Literature in British Columbia ($1.00 used, price inexplicable)
  • Sound Heritage 33 (1981), issue written and edited by Bob Bossin, Settling Clayoquot ($6.99 used)
