"While the mystery is compelling, it is Hobbs's deft weaving of Makah culture into the story that resonates, from their harvesting of wood without cutting any trees to their generosity to friends. A robust adventure in an intriguing setting."
"While his unfolding of the mystery is less than successful, Hobbs's strength is in his portrayal of setting, in this case a Makah village on the northwest coast of Washington in 1874."
From the Publisher
Editors Note When a ship is found wrecked on a deserted beach of the Pacific Northwest there are no survivors. Nathan and his Makah friend Lighthouse George hunt for clues to the unexplained footprints on the desolate beach, theft at the trading post, glimpses of a wild "hairy man, " "a skeleton . . . and a ghostly canoe that may hold the secret to ancient treasure, mystery, and murder. From the author of "Far North."
Editors Note 1 After a sailing ship breaks up on the rocks off Washington's storm-tossed Cape Flattery, Nathan McAllister, the fourteen-year-old son of the lighthouse keeper, refuses to believe the authorities, who say there were no survivors. Unexplained footprints on a desolate beach, a theft at the trading post, and glimpses of a wild "hairy man" convince Nathan that someone is hiding in the remote sea caves along the coast. With his new friend, Lighthouse George, a fisherman from the famed Makah whaling tribe, Nathan paddles the fierce waters of the Pacific--fishing, hunting seals, searching for clues. Alone in the forest, Nathan discovers a ghostly canoe and a skeleton that may unlock the mystery of ancient treasure, betrayal . . .and murder. 2000-2001 Georgia's Picture Storybook Award & Georgia's Children's Book Award Masterlist 01-02 Land of Enchantment Book Award Masterlist (Gr. 6-9)
