With photos from the Connors' family archives, this full-colour scrapbook celebrates the life and times and songs of a Canadian music legend. From his first performance at the Maple Leaf Hotel in Timmins, Ontario, in November 1964, Tom Connors was well on his way to becoming a Canadian icon. This illustrated scrapbook explores Stompin' Tom's songs, and the events that inspired them -- among them, "Fire in the Mine," "Sudbury Saturday Night," "The Hockey Song," "The Martin Hartwell Story," "Erika Nordby," and "How the Mountain Came Down." Also here are original song lyrics, family photographs, and stories from Tom's family and friends. With 150 photographs drawn from the Connors' family archives, this new book is an intimate look at the life of a music legend whose music embodies what it means to be Canadian.

Clearing in the West is the first of McClung’s two autobiographical works. In it, she examines her life from birth to age twenty-three, recounting the events and influences that shaped her political and personal future, including her first years in school – both as a student and later a teacher – her early passion for writing, and her burgeoning interest in social reform. It was this interest that led to McClung’s first political involvement with the Women’s Christian Temperance Movement, the organization that spearheaded the women’s right to vote effort in Canada.

In the early days of swing dancing, Frankie Manning stood out for his moves and his innovative routines; he created the "air step" in the Lindy hop, a dance that took the U.S. and then the world by storm. In this fascinating autobiography, choreographer and Tony Award winner (Black and Blue) Frankie Manning recalls how his first years of dancing as a teenager at Harlem's Savoy Ballroom led to his becoming chief choreographer and a lead dancer for "Whitey's Lindy Hoppers," a group that appeared on Broadway, in Hollywood musicals, and on stages around the globe. Manning brings the Swing Era vividly back to life with his recollections of crowded ballrooms and of Lindy hoppers trying to outdo each other in spectacular performances. His memories of the many headliners and film stars, as well as uncelebrated dancers with whom he shared the stage, create a unique portrait of an era in which African American performers enjoyed the spotlight, if not a star's prerogatives and salary. With collaborator Cynthia Millman, Manning traces the evolution of swing dancing from its early days in Harlem through the post-World War II period, until it was eclipsed by rock 'n' roll and then disco. When swing made a comeback, Manning's 30-year hiatus ended. He has been performing, choreographing, and teaching ever since.
