Six new titles to liven up Fall 2013!


Posted: Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 10:24am

Harbour Publishing is delighted announce our Fall 2013 list, with six new exciting titles on history and regional interest, First Nations, literary criticism, and sport.

In Haunting Vancouver: A Nearly True History, beloved author Mike McCardell takes readers on a personal tour of Vancouver’s past, introducing the eccentric characters who built the city. Full of McCardell’s trademark humour, this title proves that truth really is stranger than fiction.

Harbour’s signature anthology Raincoast Chronicles returns with Raincoast Chronicles 22: Givers, Guardians, Helpers and Volunteers, edited by David R. Conn, offers a collection full of memorable characters and laudable deeds set on British Columbia’s coast

Local history fans are sure to be captivated by local legend Frank White’s Milk Spills and One-Log Loads: Memories of a Pioneer Truck Driver. At 99 years old, Frank tells the story of his life in transportation spanning from the age of the horse and buggy, chronicling the growth of trucking in British Columbia’s freight and logging industries.

Be sure to catch Harbour’s First Nations release We Are Born with the Songs Inside Us: Lives and Stories of First Nations People in British Columbia. Written by Katherine Palmer Gordon, with a foreword by National Chief Shawn a-in-chut Atleo, this inspirational title features compelling and candid stories of young Aboriginal people in Canada.

Nicolas Bradley, associate professor at the University of Victoria has gathered the correspondence  of Al Purdy and Earle Birney into one carefully annotated volume, We Go Far Back in Time: The Letters of Earle Birney and Al Purdy, 1947–1984. This is an illuminating and entertaining record of Canada’s most celebrated poets as they looked to each other for advice and shared the pleasures and dissatisfactions of literary life.

To round out Harbour’s roster, we have End Zones and Border Wars: The Era of American Expansion in the CFL by sports journalist and author Ed Willes. Football fans will be intrigued by this authorative account of a bizarre chapter of Canada’s sports history.

Our Fall catalogue is available for download here, or can be requested in print.
