113 Boathouse Hill


What begin as a casual collection of notes about growing up on a farm more than 60 years ago grew to be a bigger project that become this book. Inspired by her family to record her stories and memories Joyce Olesen reflects on the "good old days," not to glorify them as a time better than the present, but to offer a glimpse into the life of one family who grew up on the Saskatchewan prairie and to celebrate those long ago days.

50 Ans de Radio


«Cette force qui nous fait voir un idéal, et qui pousse toutes les énergies d’un être vers la poursuite de cet idéal».

Ainsi parlait en 1952 un pionnier de la radio française, Mgr Maurice Baudoux inaugurant le poste CFNS de Saskatoon, l’autre étant CFRG Gravelbourg, postes conçus, demandés, arrachés au pouvoir politique, payés à coup de souscriptions et de quêtes, finalement ouverts trente ans après les premiers essais de ce nouveau medium dans l’Ouest canadien.

Trente ans pour faire admettre à une majorité rétive et parfois hostile que la voix et la musique sortant des hauts-parleurs avaient aussi le droit d’être entendues en français par les dizaines de millieurs de Canadiens-Français disséminés en Saskatchewan.

À une programmation locale enthousiaste mais artisanale vinrent s’ajouter plus tard des programmes de la Société d’état Radio-Canada, jusqu’au jour, en 1973, où les deux postes français furent rachetés.

Commence alors l’âge d’or de Radio-Canada Saskatchewan, poste régional à programmation complète, soutien de la société fransaskoise, initiateur de manifestations culturelles et artistiques. Au début de ce nouveau siècle, cet organisme évoque avec orgueil son passé, et pose les jalons de son avenir.

Able Physiologists Discuss Grief Musculatures


Able Physiologists Discuss Grief Musculatures is a strange and challenging work from physician-poet Shane Neilson and book artist and designer Frances Hunter. Exploring historical approaches to mental illness, and the iconography that has gone along with it, this beautifully constructed chapbook is “a song-critique, an identity-dirge, a question of cure.” A flat back binding with a cloth spine holds original marbled black paper by Frances Hunter (a nod to 18th and 19th century decorated papers), monoprints created for this chapbook by Dorothy Field, and contemporary illustrations bridge the time span of the text and make for one stunning handmade book. Poet Shane Neilson explains: “The theme of this poetry chapbook is the iconography of the face in mental illness – how the ill are seen and recognized by the sign of their face, the signal of their disorder. The poems take famous people from the history of psychiatry (patients, doctors, loved ones of the ill) and give them a stage.”

Aboriginal Consultation, Environmental Assessment, and Regulatory Review in Canada


Supreme Court of Canada decisions have defined a general framework for the “duty to consult” Aboriginal peoples and accommodate their concerns over natural resource development, but anticipate the details of that framework will be expanded upon in the future. Aboriginal Consultation, Environmental Assessment, and Regulatory Review in Canada offers a paradigm that advances that discussion.
It proposes an integrated and robust planning model for natural resource extraction allowing Aboriginal peoples, industry, governments, tribunals, and the Courts to all make contributions to reconciliation in the context of sustainable development and environmental protection.
Kirk Lambrecht surveys the law of actual and asserted Aboriginal rights and historical and modern Treaty rights in Canada and discusses the national and international purposes of environmental assessment and regulatory review. He appraises the fundamental principles of Supreme Court of Canada jurisprudence defining aboriginal consultation and accommodation as a constitutional imperative and uses case studies involving the National Energy Board to demonstrate how integrated process has evolved over time. Finally he offers general conclusions on the practical utility, and outstanding challenges, involving an integrated planning paradigm.

Aboriginal Law (4th Edition): Commentary and Analysis


Thomas Isaac highlights the most important aspects of Canadian law as it impacts on Aboriginal peoples and their relationship with the wider Canadian society. While covering important issues such as Aboriginal and treaty rights, constitutional issues, land claims, self-government, provincial and federal roles in dealing with Aboriginal peoples, the rights of the Métis, and the Indian Act, this book pays particular attention to the Crown’s duty to consult. In discussing the Crown’s duty to consult the author canvasses when and to whom the duty applies. He also highlights the role of governments in reconciling Aboriginal interests with the needs of Canadian society as a whole. The Supreme Court of Canada is clear that the objective of achieving reconciliation lies primarily with governments.

This is a law book, but it is designed for use by anyone needing to understand Aboriginal legal issues and is presented in a neutral way. All major Canadian cases dealing with Aboriginal law are discussed and analyzed in this volume. The author looks at the broad picture of trends that are developing in the law and the background to such trends. This edition of Aboriginal Law does not contain case or legislative excerpts, all of which are readily available on the internet.

Thomas Isaac is a partner with McCarthy Tétrault LLP in Vancouver, and leads the firm’s Aboriginal Law Group. He speaks extensively on Aboriginal issues across Canada, and is the author of many books and articles on Aboriginal Law, including Aboriginal and Treaty Rights in the Maritimes and three earlier editions of Aboriginal Law.
This book is national in scope, but it also canvasses the many regional situations that exist in Canada. The claims of First Nations peoples in BC, the unique situation of Maritime First Nations, land claim agreements in northern Canada, and the special place of the numbered treaties covering the Prairie provinces are considered and reviewed.

While this is a law book, it is written and designed for use by anyone interested in Aboriginal legal issues. Reviewers have described previous editions as "a welcome guide to the dynamic political and legal environment of the rapidly changing field of Aboriginal law in Canada" and "an excellent piece of work that will be of great benefit to nonlegal scholars as well as the general public." Legal practitioners have called it "a quick and easy to use summary of Aboriginal law."

Thomas Isaac is a nationally recognized authority in the area of Aboriginal law and the author of many books and articles, including two earlier editions of Aboriginal Law and Aboriginal and Treaty Rights in the Maritimes: The Marshall Decision and Beyond. He has advised provincial, territorial, municipal, and First Nations governments on Aboriginal issues, was chief treaty negotiator for the British Columbia government, and assistant deputy minister responsible for creating Nunavut for the Northwest Territories government. He holds bachelor and masters degrees in both political science and law. He practices law with McCarthy Tétrault LLP in Vancouver and is a member of the bars of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.

All editions of this book have been used extensively in law, native studies, political science, history, and other courses at the university and college levels.

Aboriginal Rock Paintings of the Churchill River, The


This book discusses and illustrates the most durable and ancient art form created by the ancestors of today’s Woodland Cree residents who lived along the Churchill River of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The red ochre paintings are found on vertical rock cliff faces in 19 places on the Saskatchewan stretch of this long-used waterway, and in three locations on its Opachuanau Lake portion in Manitoba. They are some of the northwestern-most examples of the Northern Woodland rock art tradition, which extends back in time at least 2000 years, and in space from Quebec and Minnesota to northwestern Saskatchewan.

This book presents an environmental and cultural context for this unique art form as it is found throughout the northwest Canadian Shield’s boreal forest, and discusses what is currently known about the age, origins and meanings, based on historical, archaeological and ethnological evidence.

Virtually all of the known Churchill River paintings are reproduced in this book. As well, 22 colour photographs show a sample of the paintings and their settings on the rock canvases provided by the Precambrian bedrock.

Aboriginal Self-Government in Canada: Current Trends and Issues (3rd Edition)


Building on the success of the first two editions, this volume briefly recaps the historical development and public acceptance of the concept of Aboriginal self-government, then proceeds to examine its theoretical underpinnings, the state of Aboriginal self-government in Canada today, and the many practical issues surrounding implementation. Topics addressed include: justice innovations, initiatives in health and education to grant greater Aboriginal control, financing and intergovernmental relations, Aboriginal-municipal government relations, developing effective Aboriginal leadership, Métis self government aspirations, the intersection of women’s rights and self-government, and international perspectives. Various self-government arrangements already in existence are examined including the establishment of Nunavut, the James Bay Agreement, Treaty Land Entitlement settlements, the Alberta Métis settlements, and many other land claims settlements that have granted Aboriginal communities greater control over their affairs.

This book is an interdisciplinary guide for practitioners, policy makers, and students interested in learning about government policy and the aspirations of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples. With the exception of three updated chapters, all of the material by the 31 contributors in this volume is new and original. Brief biographies of the contributors can be found on our web site.

Yale D. Belanger is an assistant professor of Native American Studies at the University of Lethbridge who also teaches in the First Nations Governance Program in the Faculty of Management. He is the author of Gambling with the Future: The Evolution of Aboriginal Gaming in Canada (Purich Publishing, 2006).

Aboriginal Title


The 1997 Supreme Court of Canada decision in Delgamuukw v. British Columbia provided the Court with its first substantive opportunity to discuss the meaning of Aboriginal title within the context of subsection 35(1) of the Constitution Act, 1982. In its November 2004 decision in Haida Nation v. British Columbia (Minister of Forests), the Supreme Court of Canada confirmed that where the Crown contemplates action that could adversely affect asserted Aboriginal rights, including Aboriginal title, it has a duty to consult and, where appropriate, accommodate the affected Aboriginal group. In July 2005, almost eight years after the Delgamuukw decision, the Court had an opportunity to apply the Delgamuukw principles to a specific set of facts with the release of its decision in R. v. Marshall; R. v. Bernard, concerning Mi’kmaq claims of Aboriginal title in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Against this backdrop, Thomas Isaac poses the question: What does proven Aboriginal title mean for Aboriginal peoples, for the Crown and for third parties, including private property owners?

In answering this question, Isaac offers insightful guidance, analysis and commentary regarding:

the meaning and content of Aboriginal title;
the relationship between Aboriginal title and private property;
the remedies available to Aboriginal peoples facing infringements to proven Aboriginal title;
the balancing of interests that the Supreme Court of Canada has developed between Aboriginal rights and title on the one hand, and the rights of non-Aboriginal Canadians on the other hand; and
a practical understanding of what Aboriginal title means, assuming it is proven.
The author’s straightforward approach makes this monograph ideal for use by a wide range of readers such as lawyers and consultants, Aboriginal peoples and organizations, provincial, territorial, municipal and Aboriginal governments, industry and business, students, and teachers.

Thomas Isaac is a partner with the law firm of McCarthy Tétrault LLP in Vancouver. He is a well-known and well-respected authority in Aboriginal law and has published numerous books and many articles in the area. Mr. Isaac’s published work has been cited with approval by numerous Canadian courts including the Supreme Court of Canada.

Accidentally on Purpose


In the time frame of one early Sunday morning hockey game, Bruno Sisco, a single father of two young hockey players, contemplates and debates all that is glorious and gruelling about minor hockey in Canada. He knows that hockey (or any sport, for that matter) can provide a plethora of metaphors to life. He knows that the game can teach his young sons to stand strong in the face of adversity, to be persistent, courageous and confident and to play with poise, dedication and zeal. His sons can learn to win with respect and lose with resilience, and best of all, hockey can teach them about teamwork. Life is about teamwork. Teams are everywhere; a family is a team, a classroom is a team and work environments are full of teams.

Bruno knows that the game can teach his children all about these great and wonderful things, but only if his own approach to hockey allows it to do so.

Accidentally on Purpose reminds us that as adults of participants of programs run by adults who are volunteers, we can determine the success or failure of these programs by the way we support or undermine them. It reminds us to keep our minds open, our thoughts positive and our intentions real. It encourages us to look at youth sports in a more comprehensive way. It’s not always just about the goals and assists but the winning of the battles, the running of the plays and the blocked shots as well.

Advancing Aboriginal Claims: Visions, Strategies & Directions


Canada’s Aboriginal Peoples Face Many Challenges- some legal, other rooted in traditiona Aboriginal culture-as they advance their claims through negotiation or the courts. A looming question for Aboriginal groups seeking justice for their claims is how best to address these challenges in light of recent decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada involving Aboriginal issues. Can Canadian law and courts provide real justice for Aboriginal peoples? How can Aboriginal communities take advantage of the 1982 constitutional changes that offer protection to treaty and Aboriginal rights without compromising the texture of the relationships and responsibilities that constitute and give purpose to their ways of life? The eleven contributors to this collection present innovative ideas written from a variety of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal perspectives, including those of Aboriginal women and Metis, on advancing Aborigina claims. Legal and philosophical issues addressed include: how to ensure the interests of Aboriginal women are adequately represented; the relative merits of negotiation and litigation as means of advancing Aboriginal claims; the difficulty in reconciling Aboriginal legal philosophies with Canadian jurisprudence; and possible arguments for ascertaining the date of Crown sovereignt and the legal significance of continuite in proving Aboriginal claims. It is the mix of policy, philosophy, strategic thinking, and legal arguments that make this book valuable as a resource for thoughtful discussion on the future of Aboriginal claims. Fist Nations leaders, government policy makers, social scientists, lawyers, judges, and anyone interested in the broader picture of Aboriginal issues will benefit from reading this book.

Adventures of Caraway Kim…Southpaw


The novel recalls a time when youth meant freedom, and every summer day could be an action-adventure. Super powers or Never Land were not needed. The bush at the edge of town was enough." – Fred Stenson. "Did you ever wonder what the world was like when your dad was a boy? Author Don Truckey has written this book to tell you. The world back then was hot summer days and refreshing swimming holes and boys chasing each other through the woods. It was playing to win at baseball and hockey and capture-the-flag. It was getting into trouble at The Haunted House, being the first to skate on the frozen pond and feeling like a misfit because you were different. Here we discover a boy’s own world called Caraway, Alberta, but what’s really amazing is this: if your dad grew up anywhere in small-town Canada, he will recognize this place as home." – Ken McGoogan. Don Truckey is an award-winning screenwriter whose works includes the television series Street Legal and Urban Angel, and TV movies Crazy Canucks, Chicks With Sticks, and Net Worth. He was a journalist at the Calgary Herald for eight years. Don Truckey resides in Torronto, but grew up in a small Alberta town that serves as the template for The Adventures of Caraway Kim?Southpaw.

Agricultural History: History of the Prairie West Series #3


The eighteen articles selected for this third volume all focus on the agricultural history of the Canadian Plains. Early First Nations practices are examined, as are subsequent evolutions in farming, ranching, and marketing.

The articles cover a wide range of topics: First Nations’ agricultural practices; agriculture during the fur trade era; the history of ranching and the industry’s evolution as fenced-in farm settlements supplanted the open range; the wheat boom at the turn of the twentieth century, which led the Prairie Provinces to become known as the “breadbasket of the world”; mechanization and other adaptations to dryland farming; how Prairie cattle and crops were transported and marketed abroad; and the emergence of farmers’ organizations who fought for fair prices for their products.

All In Together Girls


Candid and truthful stories about women, young and old, grappling with generational wariness, creative recklessness, and illusive purpose celebrate all that is beautiful, wild and distinctive in contemporary women. The title, All In Together Girls,is inspired by a jump rope rhyme, and the stories are a meeting place for girls as surely as the chant would have been on the playground. These stories relate the relentless search for identity, and the late night drive-through culture of bored teens whose ?sleepover? alibis have left them with no place else to go. Hallmarked by entrances into, and thought-provoking points of exit from, moments of addiction, betrayal, misjudgement, and first love, they are defining portraits of girls and women during the storm and stress of self-discovery.

An Institute of Our Own: A History of the Gabriel Dumont Institute


In the early 1970s Saskatchewan was a hotbed of Native activism. Inspired by examples from the Red Power and American Indian movements, Saskatchewan’s Métis and Non-Status Indians took up various forms of public protest, including road blocks, sit-ins, and occupations of government buildings as a means of drawing attention to the most pressing Native issues. Jobs and education were top concerns; Native people were faced with harsh economic and social conditions, and Native leaders could see that education was the key to improving peoples’ lives. The activism of the early ’70s sowed the seeds for the eventual development of the Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI)—Canada’s first, largest, and most prominent Métis institute. Breaking ground as the first wholly-owned and operated Métis-specific Institute, GDI is also unique because of its dual focus to provide for the education and training needs of the province’s Métis and to preserve and promote Métis history and culture.
In clear and precise prose, Lisa Bird-Wilson chronicles the Institute’s history from the early activism of the ’70s to the celebration of the Institute’s 30th anniversary in 2010. Her account includes details of a financial crisis that nearly killed the Institute and the rebuilding that followed. Based on personal interviews with many of the Institute’s founders and champions, Bird-Wilson paints a compelling picture of the issues, the times, and the people involved with building one of the Métis Nation’s treasures.

Anatomy of Edouard Beaupre, The: A Story


A Montreal doctor investigates the cadaver of the famous Willow Bunch Giant, trying to solve the mystery of why the preserved body is shrinking. His own physical limitations add an urgency to his research, as his body too is failing; a rare condition means it is gradually absorbing its own bones.

The giant’s body has been ravaged not only by the treatment it received immediately after Edouard’s death — being paraded in shop windows and in freak shows — but also by the attentions of a professor who in 1907 bought the body for his experiments and classes.

But the strictly clinical and physical isn’t enough, and the anatomist begins to reveal the story of the man through a series of events selected from his short life. Beginning with a sixteen-year-old’s dreams of being a cowboy, it follows Edouard’s seemingly inevitable move into strongman displays and freak sideshows, showing the uneasy mix of his need and desire for money with his self-dislike and weariness of being unable to escape his stature. The spectre of his physical weakness — caused, conversely, by his size and superhuman strength — is ever-present, as first his muscles and later, his lungs, begin to fail.

By the book’s close, the physical mystery is solved, a paper published, acclaim afforded, but the narrator understands he is perhaps farther than ever from understanding Edouard Beaupre’s true anatomy.

and i think to myself


June Mitchell’s and i think to myself is a virtual autobiography in verse, spanning the poet’s long, eventful life from birth to contemplation of a not-quite-so imminent death. Along the way, there are poems that evoke the exhilaration of childhood and first love, friendship and comfort, poems of loss and discovery, joy and grief – even the occasional political rant. As Socrates observed "the unexamined life is not worth living." Mitchell holds a wide array of facets of her own life up to the light, and finds it very much worth living – and celebrating.

Apothecary, The


A dramatic novel exploring the lives of those caught up in the dreadful and arbitrary violence of World War II in Czernowitz, and its aftermath in Vienna.
The Apothecary continues the story of the characters from The Walnut Tree, this time focusing on Felix. Like his sister S?ssel, Felix is a pharmacist, and the book follows his life, and those of several other important characters, from the city of Czernowitz during the war years to Vienna in the 1960s.
The forties are presented with the immediacy and reality that could only be supplied by someone who has lived this astonishing experience. Felix saves a young Jewish girl from being deported by the Russians, and procures the release of his own parents from cattle cars because a local Soviet official is in love with him. Then, when the German army moves in, Felix has to escape on his own, fleeing into the Caucasus Mountains to save his life.
Twenty years on, Felix finds his childhood sweetheart, Martina, in Vienna, married to a former German soldier. Gerhardt is wracked by guilt because of his actions in Czernowitz during the war. Gerhardt’s story, Martina’s, Felix’s and others, are all told with the same intense intimacy of detail.
The Apothecary is filled with fascinating characters and chilling circumstances. Its style and originality, its charm and vividness, its lovely imagery and its wisdom, all make it an important book. It is the third book in an informal trilogy dealing with Jewish life in both cosmopolitan cities and in an East European village in the first half of the 20th Century – an outstanding literary accomplishment.

Architecture of Saskatchewan: A Visual Journey, 1930-2011


Foreword by Lisa Rochon.
Architecture of Saskatchewan is a visual journey from the 1930s to the present, illustrating and explaining the evolution of architecture in the province and offering a guide to the architectural styles of the period. The publication of the book celebrates and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Saskatchewan Association of Architecture.
The book is organized chronologically: “The Streamlined Era” (1930s and 1940s) illustrates the motifs of the art deco and streamlined eras. “Modern or Not Modern” (1950s) outlines the influence of postwar architecture school graduates who helped introduced International Style Modernism versus the lingering influence of established practitioners. The 1960s saw the convergence of a buoyant economy, the influence of the socialist experiment of Premier Tommy Douglas and a national consensus in relation to Modernist architecture. “The International Style Transformed” illustrates how Saskatchewan architects absorbed and transformed the principles of Modernism with a keen understanding of place. The chapter on the 1970s and 1980s, entitled “Energy and Form,” discusses the influence of Late and Post-Modernism and the effects of the first energy crisis of 1973. The last chapter summarizes the work produced in the province in the last 20 years between 1990 and 2010.
Architecture of Saskatchewan includes projects illustrated by both archival and contemporary photographs and a representative selection of architectural drawings.

Art of Immersive Soundscapes


What is an immersive soundscape? It can be as simple as a recording made in a forest: leaves crunching underfoot, birds chirping, a squirrel chattering. Or it can be as complex as a movie soundtrack, which involves music but also uses many other sounds—to set the mood for the action and to literally put the viewer in the picture. Sound art defies categorization, and artists using this medium describe their work in many different ways: as sound installations, audio art, radio art, and music.
The Art of Immersive Soundscapes provides a fascinating tour of contemporary sound art practices that comprises scholarly essays, artists’ statements, and a DVD with sonic and visual examples. Included are perspectives from soundscape composition and performance, site-specific sound installation, recording, and festival curation. The book and accompanying DVD will appeal to a broad audience interested in music, sound, installation art, the environment, digital culture, and media arts. Importantly, it recognizes the pioneering place of Canadian sound artists within this international field.

Askiwina: A Cree World


"Askiwina" is a Cree word that refers to the passage of time, roughly meaning "over the years". This book travels from the past to the present. It gives the reader a glimpse of our past and our beliefs, in the hope that this will help people understand the present.

These stories are not mine. I am only a storyteller. The stories belong to our people and have been handed down to me through my father and other elders.

An elder once described her life on a reserve close to a city. The city grew up to the reserve boundaries but her people remained. "I’m still here," she told me.

That comment sums up First Nations in Canada. We’re still here.

At Geronimo’s Grave


From the author of the brilliant poetic biography Grey Owl: The Mystery of Archie Belaney comes this follow-up collection of powerful, touching poems about aboriginal realities and consciousness.

Geronimo is probably the second-best-known native American name, after Pocahontas. But the reality of the great Apache warrior’s ulitmate fate is little remembered. In At Geronimo’s Grave, Amand Ruffo uses the Apache warrior’s life as a metaphor for the lives of many of the abondoned native people on this continent.

Feared for his once-great prowess, the warrior horseman was reduced, as the cover shows, to wearing a top hat and riding in an early Ford Model T car, a grim caricature of assimilation into the dominant culture.

The bitter irony of this fate echoes through the personal poems in At Geronimo’s Grave as well. With affection and concern, Armand Ruffo uses blunt, direct, language to examine the lives and experiences of peopple who struggle to make their way in a world that has no place for them. Or who have already given up that struggle. At Geronimo’s Grave is a love letter to a people trapped in the slow-moving vehicle of another culture which is taking them nowhere.

Atheist’s Bible, The


Shalom Camenietzki’s short story collection details the fractal nature of the self as seen through the flaws and assets of the characters that stoically inhabit his pages. Each tale examines the rough edges of misguided obsession: an unrequited love affair with the nanny, the perils of a competitive look-alike, the numbing indignity of going the wrong way on the corporate ladder. Fixated, let down, disappointed, enraged, and confounded by the shackles of their own consciences, Camenietzki’s characters unburden secrets and force the reader to bear witness to their "dark nights of the soul". This is the place where the boundaries blur between religious fervour and lewd advance, money and mental illness, accident and destiny.

avowal of what is here


Moving through the words, drawings and photographs that make up Avowal of What Is Here is not unlike walking across the differently textured surfaces of the city: sidewalk, macadam, shell, sand, light, milk, water, sugar, Styrofoam beads, crosswise planks, photographs, ghost forests, shadows, ocean, water pipes, kerosene lamplight, cracks, metal grates, bird sounds, and the glass purple prisms hiding the areaways. Avowal is a poem written for two voices, two women, one walking through contemporary Vancouver on her way to the library archives, and the other walking the same city in the late 1890s. The two columns of the poem invite the reader to move impulsively in multiple directions, across as well as down, finding both the lines that tie the two voices together and the ones that falter.

Backtrack


Against a backdrop of traditional Cree mythology, and its cultural tilt, Johnson’s novel arcs through the world of four Cree brothers, bound to each other through family and tradition, separated from each other by their chosen life paths. As one brother kills, another reinforces his desire to live; as one capitulates to weakness, another conquers his demons. What drives the action is a manhunt for the killer of conservation officers; but at the heart of the story is reparation of cultural wisdom and the restoration of traditional beliefs that heal a family.

Backwater Mystic Blues


<i>Backwater Mystic Blues</i> is a suite of intimate essays that summon the secret hiding spots, makeshift rafts, and uncomplicated childhood joys that lay the foundations for adult philosophy. Lloyd Ratzlaff is in tune with the vivid simplicities of the sensuous world and the honour of unassuming people. These essays assemble the disguises shaped by religion, family, and memory as much as they recreate the delight, discovery, and illumination that his past has offered. And whether you sit back and savour the ribald yarns of Sandra Dee or pick up a bit of Christian dating advice circa 1950s, remember, the tombstones are talking, and the child’s cookie box found in the river may contain miracle or misery. But you won’t know until you open it.

Balletomane: The Program Notes


Balletomane: The Program Notes of Lincoln Kirstein is a sequence of poems in the voice of a ballet enthusiast whose passion for dance inspired him to bring George Balanchine to America in 1933, a decision that fifteen years later led to the founding of the New York City Ballet, today one of the world’s preeminent dance companies. Balletomane pays tribute to the programs that ballet goers in the mid-twentieth century would have been handed at the door and leafed through prior to the curtain rising.

Barnabas Bigfoot: A Close Shave


The first book in the Barnabas Bigfoot Series introduces us to Barnabas, adolescent sasquatch, and his family and tribe who live in the woods of BC. The story is told in the first person by Barnabas, who is a wonderfully engaging and genuine character, immediately relatable to preteens. He is experiencing the normal pangs of growing up: physical changes, pesky girls, embarrassing parents. On top of all that he experiences what for sasquatches is a dire handicap: small feet. He is determined to keep this terrible flaw a secret.

The action begins right away and never stops. Soon the peaceful, hidden society of sasquatches is being exposed to the human world, with dangerous results. The central story arc involves Barnabas’ adventures when he is sasquatchnapped and finds himself having to be a sasquatch in a human, “baldface”, world. His friendship with a helpful human girl, Jaime, weaves in threads of multicultural understanding and personal identity, as Barnabas must sacrifice his unique sasquatch appearance to literally save his hide! Of course young readers will be able to identify with the fish-out-of-water flavour of these adventures: “Do I look normal? How will I fit in? Does how I look define who I am? What happens when my own friends reject me?”

Chan has created a social structure, history, and vocabulary for his sasquatch society that is accessible and fascinating. For example, over the course of the three books, readers will learn many sasquatch idioms, based almost exclusively on the race’s hairiness. The series raises emvironmental questions as well by connecting the treatment of one’s fellows with the treatment of the earth, the implication being that greedy and selfish behaviour toward other beings will naturally cause one to be greedy and selfish with one’s environment, and vice-versa.

Barnabas Bigfoot: A Hairy Tangle


As A Hairy Tangle, the second book in the Barnabas Bigfoot series, begins we pick up the action from Book One, A Close Shave. We are in the woods with Barnabas, Hannah and Ruth and Barnabas’ father has just fallen off a cliff. The three, now fast friends, know they must soldier on to rejoin their tribe and escape the hunting baldfaces. Throughout this book and the next, these three characters grow closer and closer. Barnabas and Hannah emerge as a possible “couple”, which is dealt with subtly and appropriately in the context of the action, as their growing friendship becomes tinged with, at least on Barnabas’ part, growing romantic feelings. But Barnabas’ betrayal by Dogger Dogwood and his family and the capture and rescue of Hannah from the creature compound of the evil Mr. Roland place Barnabas again in a human sphere, but this time he does so voluntarily to rescue Hannah. He has grown from resourceful victim to brave hero. Along the way Barnabas and Hannah cross paths with Lysander, a mysterious human who proves to be a pivotal figure from Sasquatch history. Lysander, whose presence both tests and cements the friendship between Hannah and Barnabas, fills in more gaps regarding the history of the tribe, laying the groundwork for the primary storyline of the series.

Throughout Book Two readers continue to be educated in the unique features of the Sasquatch culture. Chan has created a social structure, history and vocabulary for his sasquatch society that is both accessible and fascinating, contributing richness to this non-stop adventure.

Barnabas Bigfoot: The Bone Eater


The Bone Eater is the third installment of Marty Chan’s successful and hugely entertaining Barnabus Bigfoot series.
Book three once more follows the daring adventures of sasquatch Barnabus and his pals, Hannah and Ruth. This time, the intrepid trio must confront the Bone Eater; a legendary creature from sasquatch mythology who suddenly enters their world. Barnabus, Hannah, and Ruth must warn the scattered sasquatch tribe about this fearsome monster who surely poses a greater threat to their existence than the dreaded hunting humans. Or does she?
Throughout the novel, established loyalties are pushed to the limit as our protagonists face a triple threat: the Bone Eater, Mr. Roland’s relentless sasquatch hunters, and double-crossing sasquatch Dogger Dogwood. As the action-filled narrative develops, Barnabus is forced to stand up for what he knows to be right, even in the face of disbelief from his own tribe. Resultingly, the long-standing values of sasquatch culture — loyalty, selflessness, honesty — are thoroughly tested. Will they prove to be solid and unyielding, or will they crumble at the hand of adversity?

The Bone Eater is a tense, fast-paced tale which is balanced perfectly by an abundancy of Chan’s trademark warm humour and inviting dialogue. The book also provides many teachable, lesson-filled moments about tolerance, identity, and forgiveness. These messages are always delivered with subtlety and blended seamlessly into the action. The ending, pointing towards a new and great adventure, is guaranteed to leave young readers wanting more from Marty Chan and his charming sasquatch creation, Barnabus Bigfoot.

Bear Bones and Feathers


First Nations Cree writer Louise Bernice Halfe sets out to heal the past in this powerful first book of poetry.

Among her healing arts are Native symbolism and history, the memories of her childhood on the reserve, and her own dark brand of humour. Like Tomson HIghway and Thomas King, Halfe is actively involved in reclaiming the long overlooked Native comedic tradition. Her poems about the erosion of old ways, the terrors of residential school and hth pain inflicted by alcoholism abound with satiric portraits and shared jokes, yet pierce the heart with their truthfulness. Her angriest poems, infused with dark humour, are written in a Cree-inflected English she calls her "grassroots tongue." It is with this voice that she comes to terms with the legacy of Catholicism in the moving poems "ten hail mary’s" and "dear poop."

In this powerful book of poetry, Plains Cree writer Louise Bernice Halfe sets out to heal the past. Employing Native spirituality, black comedy, and the memories of her own childhood as healing arts, she finds an irrepressible source of strength and dignity in her people. "Bear Bones and Feathers" is rooted in Halfe’s own life. She offers moving portraits of her grandmother ? a medicine woman whose life straddled old and new worlds ? her parents, and the people whose pain she witnessed on the reserve and at residential school.

Beautiful Children, The


A man wakes up in a hospital with one word in his head: <i>Sapporo</i>. He dimly recalls this as the palce where he was raised, and it becomes his name and identity. Like an immigrant without language or memory he relies on his young son as guide and interpreter, but soon drifts away into what some might see as madness.<br><br>In Sapporo’s floating world, he is also Prospero, summoning the ancestors and channeling the lost dreams that gave way to the modern industrial era.<br><br>His son, meanwhile, has escaped to the city’s underworld. His lacconica ccount of the anarchic, callous, tender tribe of street kids is beyond the scope of any realist fiction, yet compelling as a documentary and fiercely poetic.<br><br>Parallel to these worlds, and destined to reconnect them, is a young woman’s journey through what is indded the Third World – as surreal in its poverty and shifting realities as anything in Sapporo’s visions or his son’s predations.<br><br><i>The Beautiful Children</i> is a triumph of language and structure; it is also a haunting, and haunted, elegy upon innocence.

Beggar King, The


Beware this door! Beware your soul! May this door never be opened, or the beggar shall be king. As Jordan Elliott stood before the brass door, he knew the risks. Beware the beggar who would be king! He knew of the “undermagic”, that ancient and dark source of power that had been locked away because prophets of old deemed it too unpredictable and destructive. But he opened the door anyway, because he was the one who could. What he unleashed would take down the peaceful world in which he lived; it would imprison his family and slowly poison the girl he loved. The price was great, but what Jordan received in return, almost unlimited power, was so seductive that he could not refuse this gift from the king who ruled the darkness beyond the door.

Beyond Blood: Rethinking Indigenous Identity


The author argues that the Indian Act’s registration provisions will lead to the extinguishment of First Nations as legal and constitutional entities. The current status criteria contain descent-based rules akin to blood quantum that are particularly discriminatory against women and their descendants. Beginning with an historic overview of legislative enactments defining Indian status and their impact on First Nations, the author examines contemporary court rulings dealing with Aboriginal rights and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in relatiion to Indigenous identity. She also examines various band membership codes to determine how they affect Indigenous identity, and how their reliance on status criteria perpetuates discrimination.

Beyond the Farm Gate: The Story of a Farm Boy Who Helped Make the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool a World-Class Business


One of Canada’s greatest sons, E.K. (Ted) Turner helped set the stage for Saskatchewan’s economic miracle.

Raised on a farm in rural Saskatchewan, Turner threw open the farm gate to lead the farmer-controlled Wheat Pool to its greatest heights – the Globe and Mail called it "one of Canada’s best run companies."

He diversified its holdings and took on governments and vested interests in order to do it. Never afraid to make tough decisions, he even closed grain elevators in the face of farmer-led protests.

Turner witnessed the rise and fall of the family farm, the rise and fall of the cooperative movement, and the transformation of agricultural policy in the age of globalization.

From working the land to working with prime ministers, his memoir reveals a man who fought on behalf of farmers – both at home and internationally – while maintaining a sense of balance and the greatest integrity.

Bicycle Brand Journey


Bicycle Brand Journey is a series of poems based on a cycling tour Yvonne and her husband took in Southeast Asia. The poems are inspired by the trip and the game of cribbage – a game they played on rainy days and in quiet villages. Ultimately, though, these are love poems. Poems that reflect on the connection between two cyclists and the world they cycle through; a world we all inhabit and influence as human beings. They are poems centered on humanity. This project was a deep and direct collaboration as Regan took the poems and crafted visuals offering an entry point into each poem – a glimpse – while leaving space for individual interpretation. The cards, housed in hand-made folders, are digital reproductions of originals comprised of text and mixed media drawings. There are 14 poems in total – as if two people were playing cribbage, with a dummy hand, a card for the cut and a Joker. The gold dot paper recalls the pegging holes in a cribbage board. The cards can be arranged and rearranged for reading, just as a deck of cards can be shuffled.
Materials: Box folder constructed from Daler~Rowney canford card Plum. Background: India Dot SB3851. Cards made from 10 pt C1S Cover FSC white (10% PCW). Title font Calligraph 421 BT. Text font Times New Roman.

Big Bear: The End of Freedom


When the white settlers came to western Canada, Big Bear realized the the Cree Indians’ way of life was threatened, and he fought to prevent his people from being reduced to poverty-stricken outcasts in their own land. Although his protests were peaceful, he was labelled a troublemaker. Years of frustration and rage exploded when his followers killed the white people of Frog Lake, a tragedy Big Bear was powerless to stop. The old chief stood trial for inciting rebellion–though all he had sought was justice and freedom.
