The fourth installment in the bestselling Legends of the Sechelt Nation series.
Ch'askin is the great thunderbird whose appearance heralds rumbling thunder, a darkening sky and flashes of lightning -- as well as good luck for the people of the Sechelt Nation.

This compelling book recounts how this enormous and awe-inspiring bird -- who looks like a golden eagle except much, much larger -- aided and protected the members of the Sechelt villages for many years in many ways. From helping Chief Spelmu'lh, the father of the Sechelt Nation, build both the first longhouse and the many villages of his people, to delivering goats and grizzly bears for the hungry people to eat and creating islands from pebbles for the tired Sechelt hunters to rest, the story of Ch'askin is a story of protection, friendship and respect for fellow living beings.
