In a seaport town in the late 19th-century Pacific Northwest, a group of friends find themselves drawn together —by chance, by love, and by the marvelous changes their world is undergoing. In the process, they learn that the family we choose can be just as important as the ones we're born into. Join their adventures in The Tales of Chetzemoka
"Except a living man there is nothing more wonderful than a book! A message to us from the dead —from human souls we never saw, who lived, perhaps, thousands of miles away. And yet these, in those little sheets of paper, speak to us, arouse us, terrify us, teach us, comfort us, open their hearts to us as brothers." —Charles Kingsley, 19th-century. A Dictionary of Thoughts., 1891. p. 47.
