This is the best-selling story of Nova Scotia's famous tolling dog. The legends and stories of the old tolling men and their dogs of Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia, is part fact and part fiction. Here, at last, is the full story of the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever and the men and women who bred them, trained them and brought them to prominence. The Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever is Canada's first and only true Canadian bred dog. For almost two hundred years the dog was unknown outside of southwestern Nova Scotia. The dog's particular hunting technique – tolling – was first recorded in North America by Nicholas Denys and became part of the folklore of the Maritimes. Straight out of "Ripley's Believe It or Not" is the dog's astonishing ability to lure waterfowl. This powerful and mesmerizing effect in drawing waterfowl toward the shore is just one of the many intriguing secrets associated with this amazing canine. Gail MacMillan became enthralled with Tollers many years ago and became determined to unlock the dog's engaging past.

Routinely regarded as madmen, lifesavers and villains (often within the course of the same match), goalkeepers have always been looked upon as a breed apart - what other profession could unite the likes of Banks, Jennings and Yashin with Grobbelaar, Higuita, David Icke and the Pope? From Fatty Foulke to Albert Camus, Julio Iglesias to Vladimir Nabakov, there's something about a keeper that's often eccentric, serene, intellectual, vulnerable and very, very lonely.

This is the exciting & sometimes humorous true story of the formation & progression of ATF's air arm. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms pioneered the use of airplanes in the surveillance & trailing of violators of the law. AGENTS THAT FLY tells the true story of the early days of this endeavor. The initiative, determination & dedication of a few ATF agents & the backing of their supervisors, who were not afraid to take a chance for fear of making waves, made the air operation a tremendous success & one of the best investigative tools ever perfected by any law enforcement agency. The fact that ATF was the "red-headed stepchild" of federal law enforcement has never prevented its agents from living up to their potential.

In this “energetic” (Publishers Weekly) memoir, Victor Woods vividly recounts a trouble-filled and misunderstood coming-of-age in the suburbs of Chicago, the rollercoaster ride that led him to captain a multi-million dollar counterfeit scheme, and his life-changing stint in federal prison. In 1990, Victor Woods was charged by the US federal government with organizing a credit card scam worth more than forty million dollars. He refused to implicate his family and friends for a reduced sentence. His lawyer at the time remarked that he was “a breed apart.” In his authentic, matter-of-fact style, Woods shares the details of his evolution from a rebellious teen to a white-collar criminal and what inspired him to turn his life around while locked away as a federal inmate. Woods’s misdeeds and missteps remind us that sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. His remarkable turnaround shows us that no matter our past we can always make good on a second chance.
