0919441505 172 pages. "Aboriginal heroes are everywhere... Who is Yours?" With these words, the Aboriginal Heroes Contest on which this book is based was introduced to students and teachers across Canada. The heroes theme is an important one. The very concept of heroes invokes special images for nearly everyone - of someone who eximplifies courage, moral strength, or other sterling qualities which somehow allow them to exceed the normal bounds that seem to limit human endeavour. Aided by this book, teachers and parents can communicate to students that everyone has something of the heroic in her or him; that everyone can think deeply and feel deeply about issues of importance; and, as a curricular consideration, that everyone can learn to express those feelings in thoughts and written words. Moderate wear. Unmarked. Glossy colour illustrated covers. Two inch tear to top of front cover at spine. Children's hero stories are grouped by province/territory.
