After a sailing ship breaks up on the rocks off Washington's storm-tossed Cape Flattery, Nathan MacAllister, the 14-year-old son of the lighthouse keeper, refuses to believe the authorities, who say there were no survivors. Unexplained footprints on a desolate beach, a theft at the trading post, and glimpses of a wild hairy man convince Nathan that someone is hiding in the remote sea caves along the coast. With his new friend, Lighthouse George, a fisherman from the famed Makah whaling tribe, Nathan paddles the fierce waters of the Pacific - fishing, hunting seals, searching for clues. Alone in the forest, Nathan discovers a ghostly canoe and a skeleton that may unlock this mystery of ancient treasure, betrayal and murder. Download and start listening now!

    " The adventure and pace of the book are good. The parents are flat and how the boy comes to be living in town is weak. "

    " I really am not enjoying this book, it sucks! I don't think there is much of a story to it, its just a bunch of blah. In fact the story is very blah. Its really boring and there are so many other good books out there, SO GO FIND THEM DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME READING THIS! "

    " I really liked this book at the time though now that I think about it I probably would never consider reading it again. I believe he finds a canoe in a tree and there's some mystery that revolves around it. The first time I read it in school, then I begged my mom to read it to me. "

    " I read Ghost Canoe by Will Hobbs December of 2010. I thought that it had some interesting parts and was an easy " Thats who it is, thats what happened" storyboard. I would recommend this book who enjoys mystery and likes young adultish books. "
