About this product
- DescriptionA dark Tlingit war cae sped silently along the shore. More than twenty paddlers stroked in a strong, easy rhythm...Mickey assured himself that it was a dream as he pushed his scow into the strait and shakily started the motor. Young Mickey Church, a Tlingit from Wrangell, Alaska, saw a vision of his ancient forebears that would change his life. With the help of his friends, Mickey builds the legendary war cae and learns how horing the past creates a present and future worth believing in. Readers of all ages will be inspired by The War Cae, a vel that captures both authentic Native traditions and beliefs and the flavor of contemporary Alaska.
