Kisiskatchewan: The Great River Road
Based on the journal entries written by William Tomison, a native Orkneyman hired in 1760 as a labourer by the Hudson’s Bay Company who rose to become “Governor, Inland”. These writings paint an outline of life at a time when smallpox swept across the northern Great Plains and the determined march west of European traders transformed North America forever.
Barbara Huck spent two decades as a National Newspaper award-winning journalist and broadcaster. She has authored or co-authored nine books, including four national bestsellers, and won five awards as a writer and editor. During the same period, Heartland Associates has won twenty-six awards and been nominated for many more. Barbara is married to Peter St. John, the 9th Earl of Orkney.

Robert Herjavec, the former co-star of CBC TV’s Dragons’ Den and current co-star of ABC TV’s Shark Tank, wants to push his readers towards greatness. The most important decision you can make is to reject mediocrity. “Good enough” is never good enough. Drawing on anecdotes from his own life and from the lives of celebrity friends such as Oprah, Georges St-Pierre and Celine Dion, Herjavec delivers valuable life lessons.
