Jean Craighead Georges' Water Sky is a story about a boy, who goes to Alaska to find his Uncle Jack who mysteriously disappears after going there to stop the hunting of wales. The boy (whose name is Lincoln) has to adjust to many different things wile living with the Eskimos, especially racism. Many Eskimos do not like “Taniks” (white people) because they destroyed the Eskimos lives by stopping wale hunting. I liked seeing how Lincoln figures out the pieces of the story leading to his uncles disappearance and how he learns from the Eskimo people. “ My family needs a wale; it really does” Lincoln says. It's a very good book!
