Seasons of Hope

(2016)
A non fiction book by

 
A look back over Bartleman's seventy years, from his childhood of poverty to becoming the Queen's representative in Ontario.

James Bartleman, Ontario's first Native lieutenant governor, looks back over seventy years to his childhood and youth to describe how learning to read at any early age led him to dream dreams, empowering him to serve his country as an ambassador. In time, Bartleman's exciting and fulfilling career as a Canadian diplomat took him to a dozen countries around the world, from Bangladesh to Cuba, and from Australia to South Africa.

After a vicious beating in a hotel room robbery in South Africa, however, he was forced to come to terms with a deepening depression. In the end, Bartleman found new meaning in life when he became the Queen's representative in Ontario and mobilized the public to support his initiatives championing books and education for Native children.

Seasons of Hope is the extraordinary story of an extraordinary man, and of his constant journey to hope.
