Description

This action and adventure story takes place in the 1960s. Revelle highlights the skills required to be part of the Elk Whistle Warrior Society, an organization that was founded 650 years ago by Anishinaabe and Cree teenagers. Characters who have made not so great choices in their lives are given an opportunity to change, come back to their roots, and become strong role models in their community. This story dates back to the original pre-contact series Algonquin Quest, but it can be read and enjoyed on its own.

Readers see these modern characters as “superheroes” who have the powers of education and martial arts used for the good of their community; they are strong, Indigenous, female role models. Rick’s books are read in Native Studies classes across Canada. The Elk Whistle Warrior Society is his fifth book and the start of a new series.
