Loosely based on true events and on Native American Indian legends, “Tali Nohkati, the Great Crossing” is a powerful story of survival and resilience. Its main character, a young boy named Tali, was here, on the American continent, at the beginning of times, before all of us.
“Tali Nohkati” tells the readers of his growing up in the wild in search of his people. His odyssey from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego takes him to meander into unknown territories, to experience peculiar animal encounters and to discover ancestral customs and traditions.
A cross between “My Father’s Dragon” and “The Little Prince”, rich in twists and colorful events, written in a poetic and rhythmic manner, “Tali Nohkati, the Great Crossing” enthralls its reader’s heart with a breathtaking world that has long vanished, while teaching a valuable lesson.
“…covers more ground and cultural range than most such tales, but retains a classic feel and a solid heart.” –IndieReader
“Often allegorical and always magical, the book manages to feel simultaneously ancient and contemporary… A delicately rendered homage to Native American storytelling.” –KIRKUS REVIEWS
