Korea: Canada’s Forgotten War

The Korean War (1950-53) forms a little-known but exciting part of Canada’s military history. The heroism and sacrifice of Canadians who fought in this conflict as part of the United Nations force has often been ignored. In this lively, anecdotal book, John Melady combines archival material and interviews with many Korean veterans. The result is a vivid, intensely human account of the war from its first days, to heroic battles such as Kapyong, to fascinating and more obscure incidents such as the Koje prison camp insurrection, as well as personal stories of doctors, POWs, and journalists who witnessed the conflict, including Pierre Berton and Rene Levesque.
The men from across Canada who served and fought were forever changed by what they saw and experienced in this faraway land. Army, navy, air force all receive their share of long-overdue praise in this important book, which was originally published in 1983 but is now fully revised.

This book is about some of the most dramatic search-and-rescue operations in Canada. Whether the action is on the heaving deck of a sinking ship off the Newfoundland coast, within the incredibly confining walls of a power plant in Ontario, or high on a cliff face on a British Columbia mountain, each of these stories is exciting, memorable, and true. They are accounts of courage, loyalty, perseverance, and sacrifice that knows no bounds.
We read of the heartbreaking last days of an Anglican missionary fighting for his life in a lonely Arctic outpost. Another chapter relays a dramatic rooftop rescue in New Brunswick. We meet people who are saved from floods, fires, plane crashes, earth movements, and violent storms. No less are the stories of the sometimes unexpected and tragic losses of the rescuers.

Because Canada is so vast, Search and Rescue capability has to span the nation, and extend from sea to sea to sea. No other country has done what we have done. Heartbreak and Heroism is popular history at its most exciting.

They come from the cities and farms, military bases and tourist towns, seaside bungalows and urban apartments. All are ordinary people who did extraordinary things. Not one of them sought recognition, yet all are worthy of our admiration. They are Canada’s heroes, recipients of the presigious Star of Courage, and these are the stories of their bravery.
Passionately told by John Melady, the tales of their courage span the nation and beyond: a heart-stopping rescue on the storm-tossed Atlantic, a plane crash on a mountain peak, a robbery and cold-blooded murder on the Saskatchewan prairie and a dramatic rescue at the very brink of Niagara Falls, to name just a few.
Whether the quick-thinking seven-year-old who foiled a molester, the quiet young woman who disarmed a killer, or the soldier who became a human shield: these courageous individuals will inspire readers and prove to Canadians that there are great heroes in our midst.

A dozen years before the Black Donnellys were butchered at Lucan, Ontario, another murderous rampage took place a few miles away. On June 6, 1868, three men robbed and killed a rich farmer, his wife, and her unborn child. They concocted an alibi, stuck to it, and almost got off. In fact, two of them did.
The third, Nicholas Melady, went to prison and fell in love with a beautiful woman in a nearby cell. There to entrap him, she listened, learned, and led him to the gallows. When he was hanged in Goderich, hundreds watched, but thousands were late for the spectacle. They were bitterly disappointed because they had missed the last public hanging in Canada.

In the fall of 1956, the world was on the brink of war. Egyptian President Gamel Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal, and Britain, France, and Israel attacked him. Russia supported Nasser, and Soviet Premier Khrushchev threatened nuclear holocaust if the United States became militarily involved. Soon, the matter became a major problem for the United Nations.

Fortunately, because of the efforts of Lester Pearson, then Canada’s Minister of External Affairs, the crisis was defused. Pearson proposed a U.N. peacekeeping force be sent to Egypt to separate the warring factions there and keep the peace. Because his idea was adopted, Pearson helped save the world from war. For his outstanding statesmanship, Pearson won the Nobel Prize for Peace, the only Canadian ever to do so. This book, written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the event, is about the Suez and about Pearson’s work during a tension-filled time in the twentieth century.

Canadians are behind a variety of cutting-edge products, life-saving medicines, innovative machines, and fascinating ideas. Although our inventions have typically been created with little fanfare, financing, or expectation of return, they have often gone on to play important roles in day-to-day life. Our “greatest invention” is probably insulin, which millions of people depend on for life and health. But the light bulb, the Canadarm, and the BlackBerry certainly vie for that honour as well.
Some of our inventions are small: the paint roller, the Robertson screwdriver, and the crash position indicator – the forerunner of the black box on planes. Others are larger: the jetliner, the snow-blower, and the snowmobile. Some, such as Standard Time, are really just complex ideas while others, such as the pacemaker, are triumphs of complex technology.
Put simply, Canadians are supremely innovative!

This is a classic story of Canadian lumbering during the era of the powerful timber barons of the late 19th century.

The Gilmour company was one of the lumber giants of eastern Canada. Beginning as a square timber dealer in the early 1800s, it expanded into sawmilling to supply the American market, relentlessly chopping through the pine forests of the Ottawa Valley and central Ontario to feed the voracious saws in its mills.

By the 1880s the company’s sawmill at Trenton on Lake Ontario was one of the world’s largest. Unfortunately, the supply of pine that fed it was running out. With the family’s wealth and reputation on the line, David Gilmour embarked on an incredible scheme to tap a new source of pine in Algonquin Park, and float the logs 445 kilometres to the mill along three different river systems — and over the hills between them.

Long and Whiteman capture the drama of the Gilmour company’s rise and fall.

What does a 19th-century lumber baron do when he needs to move millions of logs from one waterway to another, and a range of high hills blocks the way?



If his name was David Gilmour, he’d invent and construct an ingenious but expensive system of giant endless chains and aqueducts, call it the Gilmour Tramway, and prove to his critics that he could in fact “float logs uphill.” Beginning on the shore of Lake of Bays near Dorset, the tramway was the crucial link in his bold plan to float logs 445 kilometres from Algonquin Park to his sawmill at Trenton on Lake Ontario.

In the book When Giants Fall: The Gilmour Quest for Algonquin Pine, Gary Long and Randy Whiteman told the entire Gilmour story, in which the tramway was just one chapter.

Now, Gary returns to the mechanism that originally inspired his own interest in the Gilmours. Gilmour Tramway: A Lumber Baron’s Desperate Scheme examines the tramway in minute detail, explaining how it was built and how it operated. A selection of historical photos (some never before published) illustrate the system in its operating days, while modern pictures depict the surprising remnants. Meticulous maps and diagrams prepared by Gary add further to the understanding of the engineering marvel.

Gary has explored every inch of the tramway route and combines his extensive field notes with information from archival records and other sources to put the tramway back in working order, at least in words. This second edition features updated and improved maps and descriptions, as well as some new information.

In 1834, 19-year-old Mossom Boyd arrived in the backwoods of Upper Canada with few assets other than his intelligence and determination. Within a decade he’d taken over a small sawmill at nearby Bobcaygeon, in the Kawartha Lakes district. Gradually he expanded operations until he was shipping millions of feet of lumber each year to the U.S., and his logging operations extended north to the farthest reaches of the Trent River headwaters in Haliburton County.

Boyd also engaged in the risky but exciting and often financially lucrative square timber trade, annually floating rafts of pine all the way down the Trent and St. Lawrence rivers to Quebec for export to Britain.

Timber Empire follows the exploits of Mossom Boyd and two of his sons as they battle natural, political and economic obstacles in their quest to extract a living from the pine forests of the Kawarthas and Haliburton.

The year 1984 has come and gone, but George

Orwell's prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949

of the world we were becoming is timelier than

ever. No one can deny the novel's hold on the

imaginations of whole generations, or the power

of it's admonitions-a power that seems to grow,

 not lessen, with the passage of time.
