Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: The history of the Canadian West has been greatly influenced and enriched by the achievements of outstanding indigenous leaders. Among them was Maskepetoon - Broken Arm - chief of the Rocky Mountain Cree during the turbulent mid-1800's. Injured and abandoned in a buffalo wallow as a boby, Maskepetoon overcame adversity to become a strong and respected chief who took his people from the woodlands out to the open plains to seek the declining herds of buffalo. Although he aided Methodist missionaries and guided settlers through the mountain wilderness, he followed his own path, always acting in the best interests of his people. Warrior and diplomat, he fought like a lion in times of war, but sought peace whenever possible, risking and ultimately losing his life in the pursuit. 256 pages, notes, bibliography, index.

Description:
Nathan Staples is consumed by loathing and love in roughly equal measures. He is sustained only by his passionate devotion for his estranged wife, Maura, and their teenage daughter, Mary - whom he hasn't seen in 15 years, and who thinks he's dead. When Nathan contrives to have Mary invited to the island where he lives in retreat, he sets in motion the possibility of telling her he is her father, and becoming complete again. The path to grace, however, is strewn with obstacles. The obsessive island-dwellers are truy to cure themselves through trial by extremity, while in London, Nathan's editor, only friend and one link with literary career, is drinking himself into the ground. And Mary herself is torn between familial love for the two uncles who brought her up in loco parentis, and the beginnings of a romantic, sexual life beyond.

Description:
'Noble Savages is Napoleon Chagnon's equal-time response to the libels that were piled upon him by reckless journalists and irresponsible colleagues. For those who followed the debate it is a welcome summary and for those who did not it is a brilliant introduction to the innocent nobility of the fierce Yanomamo and the pettry savagery of the mean-minded savants who saw their outworn ideologies under attack. Chagnon has always himself a fighter, and this book is his final knockout punch in a fight he didn't pick but has most assuredly won.' -Robin Fox, University Professor of Social Theory, Rutgers University

Collection of Passages on the Nembutsu is the principle work by Honen. It ranks along with Dogen Zenji's The Treasured Eye of the True Dharma and with Honen's disciple Shinran's major writings as one of the three most influential bodies of Buddhist teachings of the Kamakura period. Together, the doctrinally revolutionary ideas contained in these works radically and permanently changed the face of Japanese Buddhism. And among them Honen's Senchakushu was, in terms of its originative and transformative effects on Japanese Buddhism, the most powerful of them all. As new.

Description:
As new. Tannisho sets out to refute deviations from the True Pure Land school teachings. Written by Yuienbo, a follower of Shinran, the Tannisho has continued to exert a profound influence on Japanese life and thought since it was composed. It falls into two parts. The first part of the book consists of Yuienbo's personal recollections of the words of Shinran himself, as received directly from the Master. The second part gives Yuienbo's own refutation of those deviations of Faith that had arisen after Shinran's death, quoting in support of his argument further sayings of the master. There is also an Appendix giving details of the wrongful punishment and exile of Honen, Shinran, and other followers. Rennyo Shonin Ofumi is a collection of eighty pastoral letters written to True Pure Land school followers. They focus on clarifying the process of entrusting oneself single-heartedly to the Other Power of Amida Buddha.
