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
idealism and hard 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 visitor a 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 recognized enduring human values of
pioneers such as hard work, creativity, innovation,
cooperation, community, hospitality, nonviolence,
mutual respect for cultural diversity, and
dedication to excellence. In effect, the book is an
important resource for you as it's aptly dubbed
subtitle suggests, ...Strategies for Living.
The Mac/Windows hybrid CD-ROM is adorned with new one-of-a-kind features to this sort of development. The CD-ROM contains every page of the book itself, with expandable images and also includes (though not depicted) a Video Library — sample music and choirs of this colourful culture, a TimeLine, and Audio Library.
