In a world that knows too well the anguish inherent in the clash of old ways and new lifestyles Margaret Craven's classic and timeless story of a young man's journey into the Pacific Northwest is as relevant today as everHere amid the grandeur of British Columbia stands the village of Kingcome a place of salmon runs and ancient totems a village so st This book will stay with you as long as you live I should know I first read it nearly 60 years ago I was a callow pre teen To a kid like I was life is getting things YOUR way But the life we MUST learn to live is SHARING your life in ways that mean something to the ones with whom you share itSo it is with young Father Mark A stranger preaching a strange message of forgiveness to strangers he must learn his lesson FAST and share it WELL HIS OWN wayOnly a few years before I read this wonderful story my family and I had boarded the intercontinental trans Canada passenger train for British Columbia It was to be my first glimpse of the PacificMy Great Aunt Lila and Uncle Jack had invited us for a pleasant lunch then had driven us all down to the old ferry terminal in Vancouver for the trip across the strait to Vancouver IslandAnd oh that salty and enlivening first breath of sea air If you’ve never visited our continent’s Northwest Coast you’d find yourself enraptured by that fresh salt tangy breeze Imagine yourself there with the kid I was back then casting croutons into the ocean as the wake of the ferry widened behind you the warm brash winds over the open water ruffling your hair and watching spellbound those expert plummets of the raucous seabirds into the foaming wake to retrieve their midday snacksAnd oh their wild raucous criesAh the deep blue Pacific Ocean with its abundant evidence of undersea marine life flourishing so gloriously in that warm deep Alive Blue Water And the famed Haida Totem Poles along the shore with their phantasmagorical animal facesWell young Father Mark finds himself in just such a nature reverent coastal aboriginal village as these richly painted poles suggested to me on that delightful day in my own life 63 years agoBut poor Mark Brian doesn't know he has less than two years to live His doctor has hesitantly announced the news only to his wise BishopBut his Bishop doesn't want young Mark to know Because ‘If he knows he'll try too hard’ he says wistfullyYou see Mark is just a kid fresh out of theology collegeSo Mark has to learn to EASE uickly into his role his role as chosen local proclaimer of the coming of the Kingdom in this remote band of aboriginal survivors on the Pacific coast in British Columbia And to do that he needs to uickly find who he HIMSELF really IS in a village fittingly called KINGCOME Otherwise he’ll never truly know his OWN version of that beautiful Bible storyBut his uest for identity won't be easy Telling how he pulls it off is Craven's story and she does it brilliantly This has been an cult classic here in Canada for many many years Our better booksellers STILL stock itYou have to READ this uiet and charmingly evocative little bookIf you read it through a misty rainy Sunday afternoon you'll feel as if you're right there with Father Mark in the sacred spaces of our West Coast rainforests alone among a straggling struggling band of descendants of our proud Canadian First Nations who are themselves as much at sea in life as
