Continously in print for over twenty-five years, the Loon Feather is a story of universal appeal and one of the most popular books ever written about the conflict of alien peoples.
"The Loon Feather matches in the beauty and freshness of its writing that north country which it describes. Into the tempo of quiet serenity that makes this book an idyll there is interpolated the quick beat of suspense and excitement that makes it also an absorbing novel."
