I love this book, and the author. I grew up reading Jim's books, "Nuki" was the first. His respect for the cultures of his focus is profound. Reading this particular book is like escaping to a hideaway through a true elder. I recommend "Hideaway", as a way to the Haida. Other greats are his memoirs, "Confessions Of An Igloo Dweller" & "Zigzag", also "Spirit Wrestler", "The White Dawn"... For children, he's written many... I miss him.
