Doukhobor Pioneers' Strategies for Living
Koozma J. Tarasoff
The CD-ROM ordered separately
The book (and separately purchased CD-ROM) promises to dispel many myths about this minority group as well as to show the Doukhobors' growth from Russia 350 years ago. Its main focus will be on the 20th century of Doukhobors in Canada, Russia, and United States of America, with a special tribute to its pioneers, who like those receiving the Order of Canada Awards, have made a valued contribution to both the local and wider communities.
One will find that tenacious
work unites them all like a magic colourful thread
of creative and
caring humanity. Lev N. Tolstoy, the Russian
literary giant who helped
them, is highlighted. The Time Line gives the
quick look at where the Doukhobors fit into the
world scene. A
concluding chapter summarizes their wisdom of the
ages. This multimedia
ensemble helps to preserve the universally
human values of pioneers such as hard work,
cooperation, community, hospitality, nonviolence,
mutual respect for
cultural diversity, and dedication to excellence. In
effect, the book
