Summary
"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."
