Hawk by Jennifer Dance

2017 Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award -- Winner, Young Adult Category

As a cross-country runner, Adam aims to win gold in the upcoming provincial championship. But when he is diagnosed with leukemia, he finds himself in a different race, one that he can't afford to lose. He reclaims the name Hawk, given to him by his grandfather, and begins to fight, for his life and for the land of his ancestors and the creatures that inhabit it. With a little help from his grandfather and his friends, he might just succeed.

Reviews

The tapestry Jennifer has woven is a brilliant representation of the ongoing tragedy in Northern Alberta today. It's a story that young people need to hear, and it gives me hope!--Dr. John O'Connor
