After a sailing ship breaks up on the rocks off Washington's storm-tossed Cape Flattery, Nathan McAllister, the fourteen-year-old son of the lighthouse keeper, refuses to believe the authorities, who say there were no survivors. Unexplained footprints on a desolate beach, a theft at the trading post, and glimpses of a wild "hairy man" convince Nathan that someone is hiding in the remote sea caves along the coast. With his new friend, Lighthouse George, a fisherman from the famed Makah whaling tribe, Nathan paddles the fierce waters of the Pacific--fishing, hunting seals, searching for clues. Alone in the forest, Nathan discovers a ghostly canoe and a skeleton that may unlock the mystery of ancient treasure, betrayal... and murder. 2000-2001 Georgia's Picture Storybook Award & Georgia's Children's Book Award Masterlist 01-02 Land of Enchantment Book Award Masterlist (Gr. 6-9)

Ghost Canoe was one of my all-time favorite books to read to my 4th graders. My kids would literally run OFF the playground after lunch recess to get there in time. We read it together as Readers' Theater, complete with the prop of a 12 inch lighthouse flashing and sounding the warning of rocks nearby, in our semi-darkened classroom. We started to make a Makah dictionary of words from the book and learned a lot about Pacific Northwest history. I highly recommend this book and reading it aloud with others adds to the enjoyment.
