Displays the mysticism and wonder of the First Nations cultures of the West Coast. Manages to show the depth of the pain and the damage that colonialism and residential schools has had on many First Nations peoples and communities.

Written at a junior high school level. Repetitive, boring, too long, stereotypical, confusing characters, lecturing tone.

What a compelling story. I read another review that mentioned how 'white' they felt by the time they read the end and I have to agree. This is a whole other culture that I've ignored for years, even though it's in my own backyard, so to speak. I've only recently started to take any notice of the terrible consequences colonialism and religion has had on this community. It often amazes me what they've survived as a people and I'm impressed with their resilience and forgiveness.
This book relates some of that history and some of those consequences, often in a poignant way and more often in a terrible way. This story is heart breaking and hopeful, beautiful despite the terrible tragedy it contains.
