From treaties to contemporary arts and literatures, Aboriginal peoples have helped to define Canada and have worked to secure a place of their own making in Canadian culture. For this volume, editors David R. Newhouse, Cora J. Voyageur, and Daniel J.K. Beavon have brought together leading scholars and other impassioned voices, and together, they give full treatment to the Aboriginal contribution to Canada's intellectual, political, economic, social, historic, and cultural landscapes. Included are profiles of several leading figures such as actor Chief Dan George, artist Norval Morrisseau, author Tomson Highway, activist Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, and politician Phil Fontaine, among others. Canada simply would not be what it is today without these contributions. The first of two volumes, Hidden in Plain Sight is key to understanding and appreciating Canadian society and will be essential reading for generations to come.
In this second volume of the series, leading scholars and other experts pay tribute to the enduring influence of Aboriginal peoples on Canadian economic and community development, environmental initiatives, education, politics, and arts and culture. Interspersed are profiles of many significant Aboriginal figures, including singer-songwriter and educator Buffy Sainte-Marie, politician Elijah Harper, entrepreneur Dave Tuccaro, and musician Robbie Robertson. Hidden in Plain Sight continues to enrich and broaden our understandings of Aboriginal and Canadian history, while providing inspiration for a new generation of leaders and luminaries.
Now in his mid-seventies, Russell Banks has indulged his wanderlust for more than half a century. This longing for escape has taken him from the “bright green islands and turquoise seas” of the Caribbean islands to peaks in the Himalayas, the Andes, and beyond.
In each of these remarkable essays, Banks considers his life and the world. In Everglades National Park this “perfect place to time-travel,” he traces his own timeline. Recalling his trips to the Caribbean in the title essay, “Voyager,” Banks dissects his relationships with the four women who would become his wives. In the Himalayas, he embarks on a different quest of self-discovery. “One climbs a mountain not to conquer it, but to be lifted like this away from the earth up into the sky,” he explains.
Pensive, frank, beautiful, and engaging, Voyager brings together the social, the personal, and the historical, opening a path into the heart and soul of this revered writer.
This gripping book tells of the two women’s experiences whilst travelling through Melanesia between 1926 and 1930.
In this frank, well-balanced account of the Reformed Church's Native American missions and churches, LeRoy Koopman recounts the spiritual journey of the "Jesus Road" shared by Reformed and Native American Christians. "Taking the Jesus Road" outlines how government and church often cooperated with each other in implementing shifting policies that allowed the native peoples little or no voice in their own destiny. Koopman does not hesitate to point out how early missionaries often equated the Christian faith with white culture but also gives credit for their tireless efforts to seek a better life for the people they were serving.
Much of the book is devoted to the stories of particular ministries, including the six Native American congregations that remain a vital part of the Reformed Church today.

Aimed at three main constituencies - Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal social scientists, government and Aboriginal policymakers, and Aboriginal communities - the book has multiple purposes. First, it presents findings from recent research, with the goal of advancing research agenda, and stimulating positive social development. Second, it encourages greater links between the social scientific and external research communities and demonstrates the kind of research needed as a foundation for public policy. Finally, it acts as a guide to research methods for Aboriginal communities and organizations, and promotes cooperation between researchers and Aboriginal peoples in an effort to ensure that research decisions serve both groups equally.
A vital addition to public policy and Native studies, Aboriginal Conditions will be welcomed by social scientists, policymakers, and academics working in these fields.
Hal Roth is the Homer of our generation, a wandering storyteller who for years has sailed distant oceans in small boats. The tales he brings back are all the more incredible because they are true, and three of his all-time classics are gathered here, for the first time, between one set of covers.
A journalist before he was a voyager, Roth combines a journalist's powers of observation and flinty realism with the poetic insights of a long-distance sailor and a graceful phrasing all his own. His utterly distinctive voice can be confused with no other nautical storyteller. He hides vast stores of seagoing knowledge in simple descriptions. Sailors are advised to read each story twice: first for the pleasure of a great adventure, then for a wealth of insights on overcoming adversity at sea.
In "Two on a Big Ocean," we accompany Hal and his wife, Margaret, on their first major sea trek from San Francisco to Japan by way of the South Pacific islands, and back via the Aleutians, Alaska, and Canada. Hal's flowing narrative and vivid photographs reveal the many ways in which this dream passage became a voyage of discovery. The two sailors learned to cope with everything from equipping their 35-foot sloop "Whisper" for a voyage of nineteen months to the perils of scalpel-sharp coral reefs and opaque fog. Roth's gritty, authentic narrative underscores his singular ability to explore the quintessential aspects of the human condition as revealed in a small boat at sea.
Not content with surviving and thriving through 19,000 unpredictable miles at sea, Hal and Margaret decided to test their mettle against the most daunting stretch of water any sailor can face. "Two Against Cape Horn" tells two stories: a delightful tale of the couple's pioneering cruise down the Chilean coast, followed by a harrowing account of turmoil, shipwreck, and recovery in savage, storm-tossed seas.
In "The Longest Race," Hal delivers a taut, crisply written account of the greatest sea adventure ever undertaken: the first solo, nonstop race around the world in small sailboats. Of the nine men who undertook the challenge, only one would finish; all the others would drop out--or worse. Drawing from the sailors' firsthand accounts and his own understanding gained as a contestant in two later round-the-world solo races, Hal zeroes in on the essence of this competition: the ability to withstand a barrage of physical, mental, and emotional rigors over hundreds of days alone at sea.
Here are three classic tales of crossing huge oceans in small boats, three irresistible invitations to escape a winter night or a fogbound anchorage for the wild heart of a distant sea.
Hal Roth and his wife, Margaret, have crossed all of the world's oceans and sailed to a thousand foreign ports. Hal has also raced twice around the world single-handed in the BOC Challenges of 1986-87 and 1990-91. A magazine writer and photographer (over 400 articles), Hal has written eight books about his adventures and two how-to books, including "How to Sail Around the World," also available from International Marine.
Big adventures on the high seas--from one of the greatest seafaring writers of our age
Hal Roth's vivid, authentic tales of the sea have riveted readers around the world for forty years. Here, in one volume, are three of his classic sea stories, each one a white-knuckled, rail-down voyage into the unknown.
A hard-working San Francisco husband and wife abandon their jobs, their security, and, some would say, their sanity to sail their 35-foot sloop to Japan and back--the long way! Over the next nineteen months, they discover exotic islands, fascinating people, and a whole new way of life.
A few years later these intrepid voyagers decide to try their luck against Cape Horn, but they will need a lot more than luck to survive the vicious storms, violent seas, and perilous shores of the world's most dangerous stretch of water.
Then nine courageous sailors accept a challenge to do what has never been done before: to race alone, in a small sailboat, around the world--nonstop. Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear.
