Strong and Smart - Towards a Pedagogy for Emancipation tells the story of how Dr Chris Sarra overcame low expectations for his future to become an educator who has sought to change the tide of low expectations for other Indigenous students. The book draws upon Roy Bhaskar's theory of Critical Realism to demonstrate how Indigenous people have agency and can take control of their own emancipation. Sarra shows that it is important for Indigenous students to have confidence in their own strength and ability to be as "able" as any other group within society.

The book also compares and contrasts White perceptions of what it is to be Indigenous and Indigenous views of what it is to be an Aboriginal Australian. The book calls for Indigenous Australians to radically transform and not simply reproduce the identity that Mainstream White Australia has sought to foster for them. Here the book explores in what ways Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are "othered" by White Australians. Sarra seeks to advance the novel position that it is OK to be other to White Australia. The question becomes, "which other?" The Indigenous Student should not be treated as the Feared and/or Despised Other, nor should they be coerced into wholly assimilating into White culture.

Emily Carr, often called Canada's Van Gogh, was a post-impressionist explorer, artist and writer.

Travels in the wilderness introduced her to the totem art of the Pacific Northwest coast at a time Aboriginal art was undervalued and believed to be disappearing. Carr vowed to document it before turning to spirited landscapes of forest, sea and sky. The second part of the book presents a Jungian portrait of Carr, including typology, psychological complexes, and archetypal features of personality. An examination the individuation process and Carr's embracement of transcendental philosophy reveals the richness of her personality and artistic genius.

Emily...with A Russian Heart

This book is in honor of my television co-host and daughter, Emily Libhart, who had a passion for ministry using Russian interpreting as a tool to reach the Slavic countries. Putting her faith in action, she was compelled to share the gospel by risking it all. God used her to send and take a million Bibles across the communist border. Shortly after her return, Emily was soon visited and interviewed by the CIA, and a week later, she was killed, being hit by a car while she was walking on foot. As a columnist for Valley news, my editor wanted me to investigate the CIA and the death of Emily. Her daddy, Tony, would not go along with it because he said he had to let it go. He said, "I must let it go-I will not spend the rest of my life fighting the CIA..." and so it was let go. The notes in this book are a sampling that arose out of Emily's heart's cry-her transparent compassion for ministry and her love for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ...
