Jack Funai had weathered terrible storms, and now he wanted a hole to retire in. A nice dry predictable hole without trouble or adventure. What he gets is a giant overgrown greenhouse, superstitious village people, and perfect children. Good teachers are hard to find. Friends you can trust are even harder, but if Jack can keep from being drowned, jailed, shot, hung, and bonked on the head, his perfect students may find a way to keep him. Because they know what Jack really needs, and they like him enough to call him family. But pirates and a dark parish priest stand in their way. There's a storm brewing this time that Captain Jack may not survive.
Trigger's work integrates insights from archaeology, history, ethnology, linguistics, and geography. This wide knowledge allows him to show that, far from being a static prehistoric society quickly torn apart by European contact and the fur trade, almost every facet of Iroquoian culture had undergone significant change in the centuries preceding European contact. He argues convincingly that the European impact upon native cultures cannot be correctly assessed unless the nature and extent of precontact change is understood. His study not only stands Euro-American stereotypes and fictions on their heads, but forcefully and consistently interprets European and Indian actions, thoughts, and motives from the perspective of the Huron culture. The Children of Aataentsic revises widely accepted interpretations of Indian behaviour and challenges cherished myths about the actions of some celebrated Europeans during the "heroic age" of Canadian history. In a new preface, Trigger describes and evaluates contemporary controversies over the ethnohistory of eastern Canada.
Relaxing Tales for Children is the sequel to Sleepy Bedtime Tales, which introduced a revolutionary new approach to helping children sleep, which Dan Jones had developed over 15 years ago during his time working in children's homes with children who struggled to fall asleep. Relaxing Tales for Children uses these same techniques, but the stories are focused on helping children to relax, rather than helping them to fall asleep. Each of the eleven stories follow the same characters who were in the stories in Sleepy Bedtime Tales as they take on different adventures. These stories are ideal for reading to children at home to help them to relax, or to read to groups of children at 'story time'. The target age range for these stories is 4-7 year old's, although the approach works with younger and older children than this age range. The stories have all been written to be read to children, rather than by children, so that they can relax and listen along with their eyes closed imagining the stories unfold.
