I loved this book, it was a very hard one to put down! After I read it I listened to it in my car and my kids even enjoyed it! Very well written and a great story line. I've now read all of Garth Steins books and wish there were more!

The images of Alaska were beautiful and the stories and myths from the Tlingit culture were fascinating. Well worth the read from the author of The Art of Racing in the Rain.
I do like the authors writing style. The topics he touches on in this book were not ones I immediately embraced but the content and pacing kept me intrigued.
Steins' 2nd book (How evan broke his head...) is still my favourite followed by The Art of racing in the rain and Raven stole the moon.
I recommend them all.
This is a haunting book about a woman who lost a child and is on the verge of losing her marriage. Lots of Alaskan Native American folklore. Totally different from “The Art of Racing in the Rain”, this is a worthy first novel.
A woman whose young son drowned in Alaska searches for a way to release his soul with the aid of a Tlingit shaman.
