Voyageur Classics is a series of special versions of Canadian classics, with added material and new introductions. In this bundle we find five classic works of twentieth century fiction, drama and poetry, a period when Canada’s literary identity was shaped. Originally published in 1962, The Silence on the Shore is considered by many critics to be renowned Hugh Garner’s best, most ambitious novel. Originally published in 1967, Combat Journal for Place d’Armes was initially met with shock and anger by most reviewers but has become a literary touchstone. The Donnellys tells the tale of a secret society and a massacre that shocked the Canadian public, a story overlooked by the artistic community until Reaney’s 1975 play elevated the events to the level of legend. In This Poem I Am presents the best of poet Robin Skelton’s adventurous poetry. And Exploration Literature is a groundbreaking collection of early writing inspired by the opening of a continent, an entry point into the beginnings of a literate response to the awe and wonder inspired by an unfolding geography.

Thirtysomething best friends Kit and Bridget flee their humdrum lives to spend the summer in Positano, the infamous “Pearl of the Amalfi,” for a once-in-a-lifetime vacation filled with frivolously expensive and tantalizingly wonderful experiences—and that was just the food. Kit is in love with the cliff side resort town —and with Lassino, a pizza chef who lives there. At the prospect of spending the summer in a country synonymous with pizza and gelato, neurotically obsessive and weight-conscious Bridget is already in panic mode. But she’s ready to risk a few pounds to get away from it all for a few months. So she and Kit rent an apartment, and they invite their friends over for a visit. They find themselves with no shortage of good friends who want to spend time in Italy on the cheap. Their idyllic summer getaway flies by, thanks to a wedding, a death threat, a missing teen, a lunatic Australian, love on the rocks, a pregnancy, and lots and lots of sparkly prosecco.

Song of the Blue Star This book presents a sacred observance called the the 'blue star fire' ceremony which can be conducted by any person who wishes to find ways to release redundant patterns and to heal and restore themselves to the memory of who they are, in the Dream of Time. The various aspects of blue star energy are explored, and in doing this the book follows in the ancient tradition of the Braided Hairs - those people of old who gathered different strands of knowledge in order to share wisdom and insight - and to expand human understanding - for the benefit of all life. The book draws its sources from the wisdom teachings of Native America and from the 'Celtic' understanding contained in the stories and myths of the literature, and integrates this with information from modern science. The reader is guided into the proper conduct for a ceremonial path and given the keys to release the layers of self awareness into the light of consciousness - opening the possibility to reach for freedom from separation and to join the 'song' of the blue star. An innovative and creative book that will stir the imagination and sets a way for insight and fulfilment - a light that can shine into the depths.

Bob Dylan has always regarded himself as a songwriter: 'I am my words,' he wrote in 1964. Distilling a lifetime's passion and study, leading Dylan author, Clinton Heylin charts the development and first moments of genius of this unique artist whose songs changed the world. From his first attempts at writing, Song to Bridget, in 1957, (apparently for Brigitte Bardot) Bob Dylan always aspired to poetry, yet his role as a writer rather than a performer of his own songs is often overlooked. In over fifty years of creativity he had penned some of the most iconic, and perfect, songs in popular history. Arriving in New York in 1961, the city had an enormous impact on the young artist and, as he established himself amongst the folk clubs and artists, he would produce songs that spoke for a whole generation: Blowing in the Wind, A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall, The Times They Are a Changin', Like a Rolling Stone, and Forever Young. In Revolution in the Air Clinton Heylin recounts the story of each song as it is written, giving a full appreciation of the songs themselves as well as Dylan the emerging artist. Unlike any other book on Dylan, it charts his rise as a writer, where he gained his inspiration, the burst of energy which produced some of his most famous songs as well as the lesser known stories behind the more iconic verses. This is an essential book for anyone interested in Dylan and his place in literature. Informative, opinionated, packed with new insights and revelations, this is an instant classic.
