Old Keb Wisting is somewhere around ninety-five years old, and he’s the last living canoe carver in the village of Jinkaat in southeast Alaska.
When his grandson James, a promising basketball player, ruins his leg in a logging accident and tells his grandpa that he has nothing left to live for, Old Keb comes alive and finishes his last canoe with help from his grandson. Together (with a few friends and a crazy but likable dog named Steve) they embark on a great canoe journey. Suddenly all of Old Keb’s senses come into play, so clever and wise in how he reads the currents, tides, and storms. Nobody can find him. He and the others paddle deep into wild Alaska, but mostly into the human heart, in a story of adventure, love, and reconciliation.
