The aboriginal people of Canada known as the First Nations, the collective term given to Canadian Native Americans not a member of the Inuit or Metis, have over 700,000 members countrywide. To showcase their robust culture and educate young readers on their people comes the new book,Golden Eye and the Killer Cat (published by Trafford Publishing), written by Judith Moody.

Golden Eye and the Killer Cat tells the story of a brave and curious First Nations boy named Golden Eye who journeys to explore new lands and new people. On his quest, he finds himself being stalked and attacked by a blood-thirsty mountain lion. Luckily, Golden Eye escapes using his spirit powers and the help of his animal friends. “He has lots of fun too and takes part in some of the ancient First Nations legends, even accompanying a whale hunt,” explains Moody.

Moody has created an exciting and colorful cast in her new book. Golden Eye is of course the adventurous hero and protagonist. His best friend Tan Buck accompanies him at the beginning of his journey, encouraging Golden Eye to use his spirit powers to help defeat a greedy killer whale endangering their people. Moody also introduces readers to Air Walker, a girl who floats when scared or excited who helps him care for the injured mountain lion.

Within the adventure, children learn of the earth-friendly ways of the early First Nations people who took only what they needed, and left no mess behind. Young readers and even their parents are sure to be swept away by the danger and adventure, and wondrous beauty of the land, and the glory of early First Nations’ culture.
