"In Toronto, Rory Macdonald, a fiercely ambition young Scot studying to be a naturalist, wins a summer job banding Canada geese to trace their migration. The the bleak muskeg country of James Bay, a Cree Indian girl, Kanina, educated with white people but rejected by the white community when she became a teacher, is returning with bitterness in her heart to rejoin her illiterate family and sink back into the harsh, primitve life of her people. Caught in the backlash of a hurricane, a wild barnacle goose is blown westward across the Atlantic. The lives of these three are interwoven as the mating of the lost goose is linked to the forbidden love that grows between the naturalist and the Indian girl." (from the jacket).
