Samkad lives in a tribe deep in the Philippine jungle at the end of the nineteenth century, and has never encountered anyone from outside his own tribe before. He's about to become a man, and while he's desperate to grow up, he's worried that this will take him away from his best friend, Little Luki.
Kathleen's Review - This is great historical fiction that gives an insight into the lives of the First Peoples of the Philippines and the American colonisation. It's also a terrific adventure story with some hard-hitting scenes.
