      Description
      "I hope that telling and preserving my Garlic Flats stories will keep the past alive. I want to chronicle what it was like to grow in this place. Life was simpler back then. Basic. No indoor plumbing. We hauled water from a local standpipe. Our houses were simple and functional. We planted big gardens and we ate well. We were people of several cultures, each with its own peculiarities, exuberant inventiveness and unorthodox thinking. We were a family of makers. Our hands were always making things. The prairie landscape and my love of gardening shaped my life and how I look at the world and how I express myself through art. And that is part of this story too." Vic Cicansky, 2018

      Description
      Adam's Tree is a fictional account of life on the Cowesses First Nation in Saskatchewan during the 1940's and 50's.This period in history finds forces like regulatory policy, World War II, systemic racism, and the long reach of the depression defining reserve life and rural relationships. These short stories are told from the perspective of various characters on the reserve: an Indigenous teenage girl named Sophie, men who return to Cowesses after the war, struggling with untreated and unacknowledged PTSD, settlers like the local school teacher and the "Indian agent". This book contributes to the dialogue on reconciliation, freeing Indigenous voices during a period of time that is rarely written about. It encourages readers to examine the sources and meaning of today's inheritance of complex relations.

      "If, since Hemingway, the benchmark for complex short stories is their "iceberg"-quality--i.e. the fact that the largest part of what informs a complex and well-written story is actually hidden underneath the surface of what appears on the page -- then Mehlmann's stories easily reach this level of complexity. Her characters and conflicts have profound psychological depth, but only a fraction of that complexity is manifest on the surface, while underneath there is an entire world of what is displaced, repressed, "forgotten," dis-remembered and untold; with nuanced dialogues and roaring silences, this book will captivate and be of interest to all readers, regardless of their ethnicity, nation, gender or socio-cultural standing. Indigenous authors in Canada today are producing world literature that does what oral traditions and literature in any language have always done: teaching us who we are, who the others are, and how we must live as good human beings so that coming generations can also live meaningful lives on this planet." Dr. Hartmut Lutz, professor emeritus and former chair of American and Canadian Studies: Anglophone Literatures and Cultures of North America at the University of Greifswald, Germany. "The stories and memories contained in this book are honest, gritty, harsh, and uncensored. They depict a reality that needs to be told. It is about the resilience of a People, who have lived through racism, poverty, hatred and blame - but in the end - continue to build with unwavering pride." Carol Rose Daniels, author of Bearskin Diary

      A young school teacher learns about strange lights in a foreboding marsh; a nurse in a remote outport visits the baby she delivered weeks before to find a devastating change; a woman meets a mysterious funeral procession late one evening; a musician falls thrall to a group of strange little people and can't stop playing. The pages of Spirited Away are populated by the fairy-led, by changelings, by people who stray onto fairy turf and experience unnerving events.

      These literary renderings of stories and anecdotes that author Tom Dawe has collected from across Newfoundland offer an accessible and engaging introduction to one of the Newfoundland and Labrador's most powerful and peculiar folk traditions. Darkly poetic woodcut illustrations by Veselina Tomova plumb the fascinating heart of these strange and affecting tales.

      Description
      An Old Man's Winter Night is the most recent gathering of ghost tales by Tom Dawe, one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most distinguished writers. It includes tales of visitations both malevolent and benign. There are stories of ghostly galleons, of unsettling graves, of strange omens and fetches; an eerie tale of a notoriously haunted house, and another of a ghostly sled dog that returns to save its master when he is lost in a blizzard. All the stories are based on ones that Dawe himself has collected over the years. Veselina Tomova's haunting woodcut illustrations capture perfectly the book's dark moodiness.
