They Came

Author: Billie Milholland
Publisher: FriesenPress
ISBN: 9781525518997
Release Date: 2018-07-25
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

European settlement of Western Canada was both rapid and dramatic. People came from all over the world to take advantage of cheap land ($10 for 160 acres/64.7 hectares). Women most often came with parents, or followed husbands and brothers. They traded extended family life in familiar landscapes imbued with ancient histories for life in an undeveloped country with few roads and rough, new communities full of people from diverse cultures, speaking dozens of different languages. We know the stories of men who settled and developed the West, but of the women, except for a handful of rich and famous, we know little. They Came tells the heroic stories of 113 women who came to Western Canada from somewhere else between 1890 and 1950. Following each story is a recipe, something their children and grandchildren remember fondly.

ISBN: 9781631358449
Release Date: 2015-01-28
Genre:

The story Foolish Fish and Wise Monkey is folklore set in a wildlife environment depicting a community where people of different cultures live together. Within these cultures, a friendship develops between a young fish and a young monkey. The consequences of their friendship come at the expense of not following parental advice and guidance, which makes both Little Monkey and Little Fish suffer consequences. Little Monkey’s love for adventure and his imagined heroism on Little Fish’s back through the deep waters where his kin has never travelled, brings him to the brink of death. Similarly, Little Fish’s tactics to get her friend Monkey to the bottom of the water leads to losing the friendship that developed between them. The story shows how the fish’s foolishness was topped monkey’s wisdom in being able to think quickly and calmly enough to save his life. The tale exposes problems faced within societies regarding child rearing and upbringing. Children often turn deaf ears to parental advice and guidance while giving in to peer pressure. To this end, social ills and problems such as lies, dishonesty, substance abuse, and ignorance can breed into juvenile delinquency.

Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader

Author: Bradley K. Martin
Publisher: Macmillan
ISBN: 1429906995
Release Date: 2007-04-01
Genre: History

Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader offers in-depth portraits of North Korea's two ruthless and bizarrely Orwellian leaders, Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il. Lifting North Korea's curtain of self-imposed isolation, this book will take readers inside a society, that to a Westerner, will appear to be from another planet. Subsisting on a diet short on food grains and long on lies, North Koreans have been indoctrinated from birth to follow unquestioningly a father-son team of megalomaniacs. To North Koreans, the Kims are more than just leaders. Kim Il-Sung is the country's leading novelist, philosopher, historian, educator, designer, literary critic, architect, general, farmer, and ping-pong trainer. Radios are made so they can only be tuned to the official state frequency. "Newspapers" are filled with endless columns of Kim speeches and propaganda. And instead of Christmas, North Koreans celebrate Kim's birthday--and he presents each child a present, just like Santa. The regime that the Kim Dynasty has built remains technically at war with the United States nearly a half century after the armistice that halted actual fighting in the Korean War. This fascinating and complete history takes full advantage of a great deal of source material that has only recently become available (some from archives in Moscow and Beijing), and brings the reader up to the tensions of the current day. For as this book will explain, North Korea appears more and more to be the greatest threat among the Axis of Evil countries--with some defector testimony warning that Kim Jong-Il has enough chemical weapons to wipe out the entire population of South Korea.
