This is the story of the native people of British Columbia and how they hunted the giant whales of the Pacific. Haig- Brown tells the story in a wonderful way, enchanting to all who will read it.
Goodreads: “Timeless” is a term too freely bandied about, but seldom has a story so deftly married the moment with the millennia. Written  years ago – it was named Book of the Year for Children by the Canadian Library Association in 1964 – it could be set 400 years ago, yet there is not one quaint or dated sentence in it.
