Archaeologist, Jake Lalonde, visits Skidegate to search for his mother. All she left him is a picture of a totem pole that upsets everyone who sees it. The Queen Charlotte Haida are embroiled in a logging dispute. Dead animals are turning up everywhere, rekindling belief in the mythical Seawolf. And an Elder, Jimmy Sky, decides they must kill a seal to put an end to the talk.
When Jake learns that his mother is dead, he goes searching for his father and the answers to a recurring dream. He risks all to discover the truth - even his love for Angeline.
Set against breathtaking Pacific Coast scenery, White Raven, the sequel to The Raven's Pool, brims with adventure, ancient myths, and a bitter dispute between environmentalists and loggers. A fast-paced novel, alive with colour, romance and suspense, it continues the saga of Jake Lalonde's search for his Haida heritage.
