Synopsis: When I was young, I lived beside a wild river. The river was always going somewhere, and I never tired of watching it. My mother told me the river began in the mountains to the north and ended in the ocean to the west. But this I had never seen.
Rivers, oceans, and clouds will never seem quite the same again after "Go Home, River." In this turn-of-the-century story, a young Eskimo boy follows his family into the mountains to the river's beginning, sails down the gathering river to its end, and marvels as the river takes itself apart in its delta.
From the Publisher: Historically accurate as well as entertaining, Go Home, River was inspired by the author's own travels with his family in northwest Alaska. It is based on accounts of traditional life by Eskimo elders and explorers, and on descriptions of traditional culture by contemporary scholars. This multidimensional book can be used to teach Alaska history, Eskimo culture, the water cycle, and geography, even to very young children. Children will be fascinated to learn that the illustrations are painted in octopus ink, a natural pigment with rich warmth and great depth.
