This story follows young Squawally, a Native American from the Haida tribe, as he watches his uncle lead his people. Knowing that someday he will be chief, he is very proud of his people's customs and traditions. However, his thoughts keep returning to the prisoners his people captured during the war. Will their sickness infect his people, too? Illustrations, nonfiction features, photographs, and a map support the text.
