During a very special summer, Michael learns that the cabin and the lake he has known and loved throughout his childhood is a special and mysterious place that belongs to many. As he sets out one morning to catch a fish, he meets Leland Yellowbird, a young First Nations man, and suddenly, strange things begin to happen!
Can birds talk? Can Leland and his grandfather really disappear? How do they know special things about the lake? Are First Nations people magic?
This chance meeting teaches Michael that the lake he loves has existed with many neighbors from generation to generation and that some of the greatest lessons learned come from an appreciation of nature, and the harmony of young and old, from one culture to another.
Leslie Yaremko has been a teacher for many years and began her writing career as a young girl. She lives in Western Canada and when she's not busy with her students, she enjoys travel and spending time with family and friends.
