Life would be pleasant, if not for two village bullies. Kanti bets her prized spear against Ahanu’s bear-claw necklace in a canoe race. To win, Chogan and Kanti will need help from Mishosha (the Magician of the Lake). Chogan and Kanti come face-to-face with the Windigo—a stretch of river so treacherous villagers named it after a mythical beast that devours human flesh. During a full moon the wailing of a thousand souls can be heard within Windigo’s mournful roar. If Chogan and Kanti are not careful, their voices will be added to that number.
Author’s Note: Chogan and the White Feather is a unique hybrid between fiction and non-fiction. Inter spaced among the pages of historical fiction are links to stand-alone web pages covering a cultural event or skill essential to survival in early America. Topics covered include: wigwam construction, acorn preparation with acorn cookie recipe, totem and Manitou, birch bark canoe building, spear construction. This is the second book in the Chogan Native American Series.
