Summary
Old Keb Wisting, the last living canoe carver in Jinkaat, is somewhere around ninety-five years old (he lost count awhile ago), in constant pain, and thinks he wants to die. When his grandson, James, ruins his leg in a logging accident and tells his grandpa that he has nothing left to live for, Old Keb comes alive and finishes his last canoe, with help from his grandson. Along with a few friends and a crazy but likeable dog named Steve, Keb and James embark on a great canoe journey. Suddenly all of Old Keb's senses come into play, so clever and wise in how he reads the currents, tides and storms. He and the others paddle deep into wild Alaska, but mostly into the human heart, in a story of adventure, love, and reconciliation"
