Publisher's Summary

Native American legends of Puget Sound tell of fierce battles between an enormous snake and a mountain eagle. Being supernatural entities, neither could destroy the other. Yet their battles were so fierce that the very Earth would tremble and shake, mountains and forests would collapse. 

In the year 900, the worst of all clashes occurred. As the Earth shook violently, the waters of Puget Sound rose and surged in the form of a tsunami, wiping away the coastal villages and all the people who lived by the water’s edge. As the souls of the dead streamed into the Spirit World, they told of their terrible and frightening deaths, and the spirits of the children lamented their lives cut short. 

Moved by the sad stories, the spirit of an Indian woman, Owiyahl, shaman and midwife in her former life, decides to try and prevent the loss of life. Through her bones, preserved for over a thousand years within the wood of a massive cedar tree, she is drawn to the present day, where she convinces a time walker to go back in history to warn the people. But not all goes as planned.

Captivating story!

I love history! Give me a book with some history and folklore and you have me hooked, and this book did not disappoint. A mixture of First Nation folklore, history and time travel make for a captivating story. Narration added to the mystique of this story; Ms. Li's portrayal of each character was fantastic. I am looking forward to a follow up book. I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Redirecting the past

I loved this story it was heartbreaking, genuine, and heartwarming. I will not give spoilers and this book is long but the details are very important. The story is well developed and reads like a diary that is feasible in this day and age. This book may be a work of fiction but as a person of Indigenous heritage is rings true to some of our teachings. Kathleen Li did a fantastic job as narrator her voice is smooth but yet full of emotion. I highly recommend this book it is amazing.
