  • Journeys wih a thousand heroes

    Journeys with a Thousand Heroes A Child Oncologist’s Story

    The title of the medical memoir by John Graham-Pole “Journeys with a Thousand Heroes: A Child Oncologist’s Story” borrows from Joseph Campbell’s concept of the hero’s journey—one that we must all undertake in our lives.

  • Re-Reading CPR book cover

    ReReading Catharine Parr Traill: Stranging the Familiar

    ReReading Catharine Parr Traill: Stranging the Familiar is a decolonizing memoir and a Truth and Reconciliation project, building on the life jolt Dorothy experienced on re-reading CPT’s 1852 children’s story Canadian Crusoes: A Tale of the Rice Lake Plains during the pandemic lockdown. Sixty-five years after last hearing her father read it aloud over several successive Sundays, Dorothy owns the “truth” of her unaware complicity in Canada’s colonization project. She exposes the colonizer messages in Canadian Crusoes—messages that support white supremacy and the Doctrine of Discovery, which must have been “read” into her very cells as a child.  Dorothy faces up to the contradictions that her revered “floral godmother” represents. Without missing a beat, CPT moves from racialized stereotypes of Indigenous Peoples as stupid, uneducable, dirty, bloodthirsty, and uninventive to her positive portrayals of the Mohawk maid Indiana whose Indigenous knowledge carries the three Settler Canadian Crusoes through three winters on the Rice Lake Plains.
