Publisher Favourites

Some may think it odd that a publisher would list books on their website from competing publishers... and yes, they would be right, it is odd. But like yourself, I have favourite books that I would like to share with the world.

 

The Back Of The Turtle

The Back of the Turtle

Admittedly I just ordered this one. But I'm a big fan of Thomas King and anticipate that this book will be great.

The Inconvenient Indian

The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America

This book was my introduction to Thomas King and as required reading while I was completing my Bachelor of Education, it lead me to explore further works by this author. For this I thank the powers that be for placing it on the reading list.

Green Grass, Running Water

Green Grass, Running Water

I particularly like the humor of Thomas King. Read the book, you'll see what I mean.

A Coyote Columbus Story

OK. This will be my last Thomas King book... for now. My favourite children's book, I read this to my class while in teacher's college.

Heeding the Voices of Our Ancestors

Heeding the Voices of Our Ancestors: Kahnawake Mohawk Politics and the Rise of Native Nationalism

"This book is the first comprehensive study of the driving force behind Native political activism, and the only scholarly treatment of North American Indian politics which integrates an explicitly Native perspective. With a broad historical scope rich in detail, and drawing on the particular experience of the Mohawks of Kahnawake, it offers an explanation of Indian and Inuit political activism focusing on the importance of traditional values and institutions in shaping Native responses to the state." - Oxford University Press

I found this book difficult to put down and discovered many new things about the place my father called home.
