Trout Fishing in Chilean Rivers: A Concise Survey By Ian Ruxton (ed.) & Alexander Macdonald
eBook (ePub): $8.99
(1 Ratings)
This non-fiction book was first written in 1940, but could not be published in wartime conditions because paper was scarce, and minds were not on leisure pursuits. It was revised in the early 1950s.... More > The author's love of the sport of fishing and of his adopted country Chile shines through the book, along with his gentle humour. It was his hope and intention to introduce the wonderful fly fishing in Chile to an English-reading audience. Now at last this fine book is published. The editor has added a brief biography of the author, footnotes and a preface, but otherwise the manuscript is as it was in 1952.< Less
The Diaries of Sir Ernest Satow, 1912-1920 - Volume One (1912-1916) By Ian Ruxton
eBook (ePub): $8.99
The distinguished diplomat Sir Ernest Satow's retirement began in 1906 and continued until his death in 1929. From 1907 he settled in the small town of Ottery St. Mary in rural Devon. He was very... More > active, serving as a British delegate at the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907 and on various committees related to church, missionary and other more local affairs: he was a magistrate and chairman of the Urban District Council. He had a very wide social circle of family, friends and former colleagues, with frequent distinguished visitors. He produced two seminal books: 'A Guide to Diplomatic Practice' (1917, now in its seventh revised edition and referred to as 'Satow') and 'A Diplomat in Japan' (1921). The latter is highly evaluated as a rare foreigner's view of the years leading to the Meiji Restoration of 1868. These two volumes are part of a series of Satow's diaries and letters edited by Ian Ruxton. Maps and photographs are in both volumes. The index is in Volume Two. This is the first-ever publication.< Less

eBook (ePub): $8.99
In memory of Lieutenant Ian L. MacDonald of the Black Watch, one of so many young lives sacrificed by the cruelty and tragedy of the Second World War. He was born in Scotland, but spent his early... More > years in Chile before returning aged 13 to school at Loretto near Edinburgh (September 1936-July 1941). He died aged 21 leading his platoon in an attack on a "farmhouse" (actually a pill-box) near Goch, Germany on 25 February 1945, very shortly before the war in Europe ended. Photographs, explanatory footnotes and appendices have been added to the transcription of the handwritten manuscript which was written as part of the grieving process in 1945-46 by Alexander MacDonald (1894-1954), father of Ian MacDonald and grandfather of the editor. This is a true story which spans two continents, underlining the global nature and repercussions of World War Two for just one of countless families. "Remembered with Love and Pride."
