Synopsis: Moved by his love for a captive orca whale, young Derek Simpson makes discoveries about himself and his Haida Indian heritage as he struggles to free S'gana.
Review: Twelve-year-old Derek is the unwilling link between the mystical world of his Native American ancestors and a beautiful black-and-white orca, or "killer whale." The orca is dying in a nearby marine park, pining away for the freedom of the open ocean. When Derek meets a young Indian girl, who claims she is the spirit of the great whale, he is drawn into the drama of the whale's desperate bid for freedom. In the process, the young people begin to rediscover their own cultural heritage. The threads of an ancient Haida tale reach out across the centuries to weave a net of suspense and mystery, a tale of heroism that will captivate 8 to 12-year-olds. Exciting and convincingly written, S'gana offers a timely message of respect for all beings. We feel certain that this new book is destined to become a favorite. Highly recommended! -- Review By HearthSong Books
