£12.50
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Keet, a ten-year-old Tlingit Indian boy, stows away for a voyage on his father's canoe ...and soon finds himself caught in the middle of a wild seastorm. The story carries him far from his home village, and when he makes land, he winds up right in the middle of a dangerous dispute between two Indian clans. The story of how he copes with these surprises and extricates himself from danger is dramatic and unforgettable. And it's mostly true. Roy Peratrovich here builds a wonderful children's tale on the bones of a story his own grandfather passed down. His accompanying illustrations bring the people and landscapes of Alaska to say nothing of the adventures! to stunning life, drawing young readers into a long-gone time when the whims of nature and man could suddenly test a boy's courage.
