Description

The Canoe He Called Loo Taas celebrates the true story of a 50-foot, community-carved canoe made from a single cedar tree, which was designed and carved by Amanda Steven's late father, Bill Reid. Loo Taas, pronounced, loo toss, are the Haida words meaning wave eater. In 2009, Loo Taas was the alternate mode of transportation for the Olympic Torch while touring Haida Gwaii. Elder Percy Williams was the torchbearer. Award-winning illustrator Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas has created a beautiful and charming 24-page full-colour picture book about the creation of this legendary canoe.
