Summary, etc.:
"So much of life today is different from life in an 1800s Chinook village. Located in the present-day states of Washington and Oregon, the Chinook are one of North America s native cultures. This book introduces young readers to the lifestyle of the Chinook through a fictional journal chronicling the daily life of an 8-year-old fisherman s son. Fact boxes throughout the text present the historical context for the journal s stories, and an engaging table sums up just how different their life was from young readers lives today." -- from publisher.
