Flight of the Goose: a Story of the Far North

Lesley Thomas


(published by Far Eastern Press of Seattle) In "Flight of the Goose", an award-winning literary novel that is deeply researched by Alaskan author Lesley Thomas, who grew up in a multicultural family in rural Northwest Alaska, the protagonist is an Indigenous woman who sets out on a forbidden path of shamanism. In her Christianized village, she is considered a witch. She clashes--then grows familiar with--with a western scientist who studies birds and evades the draft. A triangle forms with a traditional hunter and tragedy ensues. Praised by anthropologists, Alaska Natives, scientists, missionaries and shamans as well as literary critics.
