Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

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.

This book explores the old and new customs and superstitions of this ancient people and affect the life of the vicar in this story. It is a fabulous story that will make the young and the older consider how they are living their lives and how each life touches another.
