British Columbia is a province of extraordinary extremes: urban areas and rural territories; lush farm terrain and mountain vistas; balmy ocean views and frozen snowscapes. Its population is equally diverse: gardeners, skiiers, bush pilots, filmmakers, fishermen, and assorted eccentrics who could have only come from British Columbia. Through it all, CBC Radio 1's BC Almanac has documented BC life in all its various forms. British Columbia Almanac, written and compiled by host Mark Forsythe, provides a fun, informative, and captivating snapshot of the province and its habitues. Chapters are devoted to each season of the year in BC. For example, "Summer" will include barbecue recipes, hidden hiker trails, cougar attack tales, best roadside diners, and favourite campsites; "Winter" will include recipes for soups and stews, skiing trivia, winter survival stories, and Christmas in BC anecdotes. There will be essays by regular BC Almanac contributors such as gardener Brian Minter, historian Jean Barman, and outdoors expert Jack Christie--all of them accomplished authors in their own right--as well as personal anecdotes and photographs from the program's listeners located in all parts of the province, reporting on life in their neck of the woods. Scattered throughout are various BC trivia and facts, as well as behind-the-scenes tales of the show itself, a fixture on CBC Radio 1 since the 1980s. Two-colour throughout; includes numerous photographs and illustrations.

All Amazed

All Amazed celebrates the life and work of the late Roy Kiyooka (1926-1994), one of Canada's first multi-disciplinary artists whose work transcended categorical and cultural exclusivity. At various periods of his life, Kiyooka was a painter, sculptor, teacher, poet, musician, filmmaker, and photographer. When Kiyooka arrived in Vancouver in 1959, he was already one of Canada's most respected abstract painters. His modernist stance at the time inspired a generation of Vancouver painters to reach beyond regionalism. In the sixties and seventies, Kiyooka began to write and publish poetry and produce photographic works; the best known of these, StoneDGloves (1969-1970), is both a poetic and photographic project. In all of his projects, he saw the position of the artist as being in opposition to the institutions of art. The shape and scope of Kiyooka's work continues to be revealed, seven years after his death. Based on a major multidisciplinary conference at the University of British Columbia organized by such luminaries as Michael Ondaatje, Daphne Marlatt, Scott Watson, and John O'Brian, All Amazed pays tribute to a remarkable artist and poet who continues to amaze and astound us. Includes essays by Roy Miki, Henry Tsang, Sheryl Conkelton, and Scott Toguri McFarlane, as well as numerous black and white images of Kiyooka's artwork.
