Synopsis

Eagle Boy A Pacific Northwest Native Tale by Richard Lee Vaughan

Based on a popular Northwest Coast Native tale, this book recounts the story of Eagle Boy. The title character is an orphan who grows up to love eagles, despite the fact that the people of his tribe distrust them. In return he is ridiculed and made an outcast. One year, the tribe has difficulty hunting and fishing and must depart their land. With not enough room in their boats, Eagle Boy is left behind. He is saved from starvation by the eagles he loves and using their assistance saves his starving tribe, who have not been able to find a fertile place to live since their departure. The gorgeous illustrations and tales of adventures and bald eagles will thrill children, while also instructing them about individualism and humanity.
