ANGUS: FROM THE HEART
Angus: From the Heart is the life story of a man who transcended childhood loss, poverty and alcoholism to become beloved by people throughout the Americas.

Adopted by the Tlingit people of Alaska, he was also honoured by receiving the most sacred possessions of a Saskatchewan First Nation chief. This is a story of very human struggles and transformation, of love, sacrifice and spirituality, which will give you a new perspective on life and happiness.
EQUALS AND PARTNERS
A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TOWARDS RECONCILIATION AND ONENESS, WAZIN ÎCHINABI
Canada is poised to reconcile its centuries-long fraught history with Indigenous peoples and to establish justice. What fundamental spiritual principles should guide this challenging process and bring together peoples who have been separated for so long?
In this part-memoir, part-scholarly work, Patricia Verge records her decades-long friendship with the Stoney Nakoda Nation in southern Alberta. She explores how her spiritual journey has been intimately entwined with service among Indigenous people and confronts her own ignorance of the true history of Canada, taking for her guidance this quote from the writings of the Bahá'í Faith: “a massive dose of truth must be administered to heal.”
An engaging and timely work, Equals and Partners is ultimately a story of love and commitment to the principle of the oneness of humanity.
RETURN TO TYENDINAGA:
THE STORY OF JIM AND MELBA LOFT, BAHÁ'Í PIONEERS
In 1949, the first Canadian Native American Bahá'ís, Melba and Jim Loft, abandoned a comfortable middle-class existence in Marysville, Michigan, to teach their Faith in the land of Jim's forefathers, the Tyendinaga Mohawk Indian Reserve in Ontario, Canada. Despite hardship and tragedy, the Lofts persevered, fulfilling Jim's cherished dream of bringing Bahá'u'lláh's word to First Nations people. This, their daughter Evelyn's memoir, is the record of that challenging and exhilarating time.
