Her unique background, education, and international experience have informed and inspired her writing. This has resulted in three books that offer insight into her worldly experiences, enhance our knowledge base, and invite discussion on these important topics. Her international experiences in administration, teaching, and research in local and remote North American communities (First Nations, Native Americans), provide her with a unique vision of how to see with new eyes and act accordingly to create balance and harmony in our world.
Tabart's Jack and the Bean Stalk is a favorite folk tale conveys that no matter how poor one is, there is a solution for every problem; we only have to grow and climb to find it. The author explores what individuals sometimes forget in the search for their pot of gold. She is a woman who has ascended mountains (rising to new heights of thinking), clambered among rose bushes (experiencing the beauty and sweetness of the petals and the pain of the thorns), and climbed scaffolds (building upon levels of consciousness). Like Jack and his bean stalk, Waters reveals how country people and giants relate to the real world today. Since diversity permeates everything we do, Ludmer's purpose is to build understanding about relationships among all types of people, whether powerless or empowered, whether intellectual or lowbrow.
