This book is about the nuances of college life as viewed from a Christian perspective. Dr. Martin came to the conclusion that the quest for human knowledge is endless in its own seductive way. Our educational bastions are an arms length from the church; yet it appears the church is being neglected by many who labor in the halls of academics by their lack of participation in church. It is durable and manageable for one to participate in both the educational process and the church, however, these individuals are becoming a rare breed and that is why Dr. Martin challenges the educator to return to his/her spiritual roots. Dr. Martin asserts spiritual values are a reality and to be negligent here is without excuse.

Coppa Hembo was a fascinating historical figure. Born of a Maidu father and Washoe mother he would rise to become the primary Huuk (Chief ) for nearly 50 years over the Hill Nisenan band of the Southern Maidu, with authority over the Maidu and Washoe people living on the Divide between the forks of the Natoman (American) River. As a young man he had been attacked by a grizzly bear which he managed to kill, permanently disfigured by the mauling he was given the name Coppa Hembo (Grizzly Bear Killer). He would lead his people in battles against slave raiders but managed to keep his people out of both the First and Second Indian Wars of El Dorado County continuing to live in peace with the horde of invading miners. Coppa Hembo’s leadership included arranging for his people to be vaccinated against small pox in 1852. His reputation for wisdom and impartiality found him serving as both a judge and keeper of the peace for both Indians and non-Indians. A staunch proponent of education he arranged to help the local school system during conflicts arising from the American Civil War. He would guide his people into full integration into the American society thus saving them from being rounded up and herded onto reservations. His is not a story of tragedy but instead one of triumph for a true American Hero.
