The Culture of Hunting in Canada covers elements of the history of hunting from the pre-colonial period until the present in all parts of Canada and features essays by practitioners and scholars of hunting and by pro- and anti-hunting lobbyists. The result crosses the boundaries between scholarship and personal reflection, and between academia and advocacy. Topics include hunting identities; conservation and its relationship to hunting; tensions between hunters and non-hunters and between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal hunting groups; hunting ethics; debates over hunting practices and regulations; animal rights; and gun control. This book makes an unprecedented contribution to the study of hunting in Canada and its role in our culture.

An exceptional man, George Mercer Dawson (1849-1901) a tiny hunchback, may have contributed more than any other person to early knowledge of the geology, biology and ethnology of Canada’s Northwest. Possessed of a brilliant mind, boundless enthusiasm, an insatiable thirst for knowledge, and a great love of the land, he made some of the most epic exploratory journeys in Canadian history. His maps and reports remain invaluable reference sources. Both Dawson City and Dawson Creek are named in his honour. This book tells the story of some of his life experiences and adventures.

Carter F. Hanson's Emigration, Notion, Vocation is a careful synthesis of a too-neglected subject, While critics have long noted the English emigrant as ubiquitous presence in early Canadian texts, apart from Susanna Moodie and Catherine Parr Traill, that presence has not been explained. Hanson has done so very well here, and he writes with precision, understanding, and imaginative grasp. This is a book for anyone interested in Canadian writing.-Robert Thacker, author of The Great Prairie Fact and Literary Imagination What I admire most in this study is its diligent pursuit of the "cultural dynamics" of English emigration to colonial Canada in the nineteenth century. Carefully analyzing the language and ideology of Victorian England, particularly the prevailing and compelling discourses on work, middle-class identity, and "landed vocation," Hanson provides astute readings of well-known texts by writers like Catharine Parr Traill and Susanna Moodie and of many now-overlooked books by authors such as Frederick DelaFosse, John Mackie, R.E.W. Goodridge, and Mrs. H.B. King. Bringing understanding and empathy to his readings of individual texts and the evolution of Canada over the century, he enables the reader to catch the tension between economic self-interest and a commitment to the grand imperial design that underpinned so much thinking about Canada before the twentieth century.-Michael Peterman, Professor Emeritus, Trent University
