The education of Augie Merasty:A courageous and intimate memoir, The Education of Augie Merasty is the story of a child who endured life in a residential school. There he faced the dark heart of humanity, let loose by the cruel policies of a bigoted nation.
Birdie: A darkly comic and moving first novel about the universal experience of recovering from wounds of the past, informed by the lore and knowledge of Cree traditions. Bernice Meetoos, a Cree woman, leaves her home in Northern Alberta following tragedy and travels to Gibsons, BC. She is on something of a vision quest, seeking to understand the messages from The Frugal Gourmet that come to her in her dreams, but also driven by the leftover teenaged desire to meet Pat Johns, who played Jesse on The Beachcombers, because he is, as she says, a working, healthy Indian man. Bernice heads for Molly's Reach to find answers but once there finds she is making the same poor decisions as always. Part road trip, dream quest and travelogue, the novel touches on the universality of women's experience, regardless of culture or race.
