I Heard the Owl Call My Nameby Margaret Craven
Synopses & Reviews
A place of salmon runs, ancient totems, and a lesson a young vicar must learn....
Amid the grandeur of the remote Pacific Northwest stands Kingcome, a village so ancient that, according to Kwakiutl myth, it was founded by the two brothers left on earth after the great flood. The Native Americans who still live there call it Quee, a place of such incredible natural richness that hunting and fishing remain primary food sources. But the old culture of totems and potlatch is being replaces by a new culture of prefab housing and alcoholism. Kingcome's younger generation is disenchanted and alienated from its heritage. And now, coming upriver is a young vicar, Mark Brian, on a journey of discovery that can teach him — and us — about life, death, and the transforming power of love.
A young minister who has two years to live learns about the meaning of life when he is sent to an Indian parish in British Columbia.
