Canadian Pacific Steamships was a worldwide travel network that included great passenger ships. Their highpoint for that arm might have been in the Twenties & Thirties. First, they had a superb transpacific service, Vancouver to and from the Orient, with four splendid ships providing twice-monthly service. It all hinted of far-off, exotic travel--grand salons, midnight sailings from Shanghai and an Asiatic steerage below decks. On the Atlantic, Canadian Pacific provided a fine service, largely between Liverpool and the St Lawrence, to Quebec City and Montreal. This culminated with the debut, in 1931, of one of the finest liners of the twentieth century, the giant 'Empress of Britain'. An exquisite ship both inside and out, she made luxurious world cruises in winter--like a big yacht! The stories of these ships on both oceans is told in this new book. Some were scrapped prematurely, others casualties of war and still others restored and reactivated for Canadian Pacific liner services in the late Forties and into the Fifties. Altogether, it is a fascinating group of ships, well deserving of another review.

A young woman will stop at nothing to achieve her dreams... The White Empress, by bestselling author Lyn Andrews, is a moving saga of a young woman who is determined to make her own way in life - and see the world whilst doing so. Perfect for fans of Anne Baker, Dilly Court and Maureen Lee. Cat Cleary is a sixteen-year-old Irish 'slummy' arriving in Liverpool to seek her fortune. Joe Calligan, a young steam-packet deckhand, think she's the loveliest girl he's ever seen, and hasn't the heart to tell her that Liverpool is full of people tramping the streets looking for work. And then Cat sees the White Empress, a huge luxury liner. In that moment her ambition is born - to be chief stewardess. In spite of her poverty, her lack of education, her family background, Cat Cleary sets about realising her incredible dream. And while doing so she discovers that having a good man by her side will bring her more happiness than she could ever have imagined. What readers are saying about The White Empress: 'Five stars is not enough for this Lyn Andrews epic tale, I was glued from start to finish. The accuracy and story itself is phenomenally detailed, it was like I was in Liverpool - I could almost hear the wartime sirens and bombs' 'Lyn Andrews is a fantastic author. Her descriptions of everything in this book were breath-taking to read. The story was heartrending in places and warm and happy in others' 'The story tells of struggles, loves, traumas, hopes and ambitions. As always Lyn Andrews draws you into her stories'

In contrast to the widely known experiences of Asian immigrants who came to Canada, this book looks at movement in the opposite direction. Using text and images, it is a collection of stories about how Canadians “found Japan,” the first place they reached when travelling westward across the Pacific. These connections began as early as 1848, when the adventurous son of a Hudson’s Bay Company trader tempted fate by smuggling himself, disguised as a shipwrecked sailor, into the closed and exotic land of the shoguns. He was followed by an intriguing cast of characters—missionaries, educators, businessmen, social activists, political figures, diplomats, soldiers and occasional misfits—who experienced a rapidly changing Japan as it underwent its remarkable transformation from a largely feudal society to a modern state. Now, when the world is becoming more Asia-centric, Finding Japan provides glimpses into an earlier era that challenged conventional perceptions about Canadian connections across the Pacific.
