At first battling homesickness, Xiao Mei soon ventures out on her own, discovering the excitement of a different way of life and a new appreciation of her Chinese heritage. When it is finally time to leave, Xiao Mei must gather up her memories and bring "a little bit of China" back home.

Stories of Robin Town: #6 The Robin Song
Format: Paperback
  • This is the sixth book in the series Stories of Robin Town.

    This series is the result of a community-based initiative started in 2005 by Gila Kyew Nluulk Head Start and Daycare Manager Lillian Samson. The goal of the initiative was to create educational books for children at the daycare which would teach them about the heritage and values of their community and their ancestors. Lillian asked Jim McDonald to write these children's stories based upon the history of the community using archival stories about Robin Town, the ancestral community of the Kitsumkalum people. Community member Gerald Samson was later asked to contribute the artwork for the series. The Gila Kyew Nluulk Heritage Project was initiated in 2008 with the help of Success by 6 Northwest and their ongoing support has allowed us to produce this series of books. In 2010, we formed an important partnership with the Department of Aboriginal Education of Coast Mountains School District 82, ensuring the successful completion of this series. These books have been created for young children of Kitsumkalum descent with the intention of fostering pride and strength through knowledge and learning. It is hoped that they will create important connections for the children both within the community of Kitsumkalum and between communities in the Northwest of British Columbia.

The Whale People
Format: Paperback
  • In The Whale People, young Atlin must one day succeed his father Nit-gass, a great whaling chief of the Hotsath people. The boy trains for his role with the mixture of yearning and apprehension experienced by every youth racing toward adulthood - except that in Atlin's case, his whole community is depending on his success.

    With lean, sure-footed prose, Haig-Brown captures the tangled emotions of adolescence, and in the process conveys a vivid portrait of pre-Columbian life on the West Coast. Never preachy or condescending, The Whale People is richly furnished with the material and spiritual mainstays of its characters: canoes, harpoons, animals and "tumanos," the personal magic a great whaler and leader must possess.

    "Timeless" is a term too freely bandied about, but seldom has a story so deftly married the moment with the millennia. Written 40 years ago - it was named Book of the Year for Children by the Canadian Library Association in 1964 - it could be set 400 years ago, yet there is not one quaint or dated sentence in it.
