A new collection of warm, wise and inspiring stories from the author of the bestselling One Native Life. Since its publication in 2008, readers and reviewers have embraced Richard Wagamese’s One Native Life. “In quiet tones and luminous language,” wrote the Winnipeg Free Press, “Wagamese shares his hurts and joys, inviting readers to find the ways in which they are joined to him and to consider how they might be joined to others.” In this new book, Richard Wagamese again invites readers to accompany him on his travels. This time his focus is on stories: how they shape us, how they empower us, how they change our lives. Ancient and contemporary, cultural and spiritual, funny and sad, the tales are grouped according to the four essential principles Ojibway traditional teachers sought to impart: humility, trust, introspection and wisdom.

Celebrated Ojibway author Richard Wagamese shares the traditions and teachings of his people, entwining them with an account of his own life-long struggle for self-knowledge and self-respect. Richard Wagamese stares the modern world in the eye and takes careful note of its snares and perils. He sees people coveting without knowing why, people looking for roots without understanding what might constitute rootedness, people looking for acceptance without offering reciprocal respect, and people longing for love without knowing how to offer it. And underneath all lurks the seductive oblivion of substance abuse. These are the pitfalls of his own life, dangers he hopes his estranged son, Joshua, will be able to navigate with the guidance afforded by this heartfelt memoir. Richard Wagamese has no easy answers. His road to self-knowledge has been long and treacherous -- and it is in part this series of trials that has furnished him if not with a complete set of answers then at least a profound understanding of the questions. Again and again Wagamese brings universal problems into astonishingly sharp focus by sharing the special wisdom of Canada’s First Nations, while reminding us that we are not so different after all.

The history of European occupation in South Africa dates from 1652 when the Cape was garrisoned by the Dutch East India Company as a revictualling station. The early settlers were sailors and vagabonds from Amsterdam. They were quite unsuited for agricultural life, and so Malays and Chinese, imported from overseas, and, later, the Hottentots of the Cape, were made use of as slaves. After the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, some three hundred French Huguenots came to the Cape. This book tells the history of colonization in South Africa. It is divided into four parts: the brief outline about the attitude of the African tribe; the situation obtaining on the Witwatersrand; the African's reaction to this situation, and the writer's conclusion.

In June of that year a Native member of the Manitoba legislature, Elijah Harper, shrewdly manipulated the rules of that body to effectively kill the Meech Lake constitutional accord because its' provisions for entrenching Native self-determination were insufficient ... Before the shock of this evenet had subsided the Oka crisis was exploding from the nation's televisions and newpapers. In a now infamous confrontation, members of the Quebec provincial police stormed the barricade set up by Mohawk warriors ..."--Back cover.

A cowboy forced into early retirement bonds with a stubborn teenager in this novel from the award-winning author of Indian Horse and Medicine Walk. Canadian champion bull-rider Joe Willie Wolfchild is poised to win the most sought-after title in rodeo when a devastating accident at the National Finals leaves his body and ambitions in tatters. Unsure of what else to do, he retires to the panoramic family ranch, Wolfcreek, to mend. Claire Hartley and her fifteen-year-old son Aiden have nearly been torn apart by abusive boyfriends and an unjust world when a friend sends them to the Wolfchild ranch. Thrown together by terrible circumstance, it appears Aiden and Joe Willie have more in common than their childhoods would suggest. After a rocky start, they strike a deal: Aiden will help Joe Willie repair his ’34 Ford V8 pickup if the former champion teaches the city kid how to ride a bull. As Wagamese reveals their story, he rewrites the history of the North American cowboy. In taut, muscular prose, Wagamese explores how independence, self-determination, and a return to cultural tradition can heal body, mind, and community. “Richard Wagamese is a born storyteller, and Dream Wheels is his finest book yet. Cover to cover, a ripping read.”—Louise Erdrich, New York Times – bestselling author of The Night Watchman “A worthy testament to the healing power of family and tradition.”—Publishers Weekly “Ojibwa author Wagamese mixes cowboy lore and Native American mysticism in this affecting novel about the healing effects of family…. His soaring descriptions of the desert landscape, action-packed rodeo scenes, and reverence for hearth and home will strike a chord with readers.”—Booklist
