Read full description of the books:
Wow! Wisniewski tells a story of warning from a Native American's view of European greed. 1780's sea otter trade in its prime - 1820 sea otters almost extinct. 1850- whaling and sealing at their height - 1870 so few whales remained the industry collapsed, sealing ended 30 years later. Logging decimated the ancient rainforest... Tlingit and other peoples have made a valiant effort to preserve their culture, but it remains to be seen if the environment will survive.
""Until that time comes," she said aloud. "I must be like this canoe. As it once carried me to safety, so must I carry the ways of my people past this danger."
This she did, and the generations between then and now have brought her wisdom forward to this very day."
This might be my first choice for a third grade class coming Monday.
