Synopses & Reviews
Based on a popular Northwest coast tale, Eagle Boy is the story of a young orphan whose love of eagles has made him an outcast from his tribe, which distrusts the birds. One year, the tribe has trouble finding enough food and must leave its land. With space in the boats at a premium, Eagle Boy is left behind. His beloved eagles save him from starvation, but can he convince them to help the rest of his tribe? Colorful, richly detailed illustrations highlight this story of eagles, individualism, and Pacific Northwest Native life.
