Abstract:

"Elbow, Saskatchewan is a tiny village situated in Canada's middle prairie province. Every summer, a group of cousins visited their Grandmother in the quiet town where they enjoyed a playground of secluded beaches on an immense lake. This particular summer, however, the group stumbles onto the magical Mistaseni rock, a holy stone once worshipped by the Plains Cree aboriginals. The encounter hurdles them into a mythic adventure where they meet the peace-loving Mamekewsesuk tribe of the sand-hills and must face-off against the Young-Dogs of Elbow, a rogue tribe of aboriginals that kidnap the smallest of their group. This work combines a series of aboriginal myths, legends, and historical reports about The Elbow to tell the story of the Young-Dogs and how the cousins escaped the world of aboriginals to safely return to their Grandmother's house."--Publisher's website.
