Christmas at Wapos Bay

This novel follows Talon, T-Bear and Raven as they spend Christmas at their Moshom’s (Grandfather’s) cabin. The whole family is supposed to be coming to stay for Christmas, but, due to a large forest fire, Moshom and the kids might not be able to hunt enough meat to feed everyone. Moshom is also getting older and is ill, and Talon, T-Bear and Raven are worried that he’ll make his health worse trying to get the food. They decide that they’ll go out hunting on their own, but there’s a big winter storm coming. This story is an engaging portrayal of family relationships and the importance of life on the land for this extended Cree family.

This book is part of the From Many Peoples series and is also connected to the Wapos BayTV series.
