Quick Overview

Candy Gourlay tells this brilliant adventure story from the point of view of a young boy from highlands of the Philippines in 1899. He has never met anyone from the world outside of his tribe. But then the American invaders provide a much greater threat to everything he knows and loves. Paperback, 252 pages. Size: 12.6cm x 17.8cm


Samkad dreams of becoming a mighty headhunter like his father, carrying his own weapons and etching tattoos across his chest to proclaim his greatness as a warrior. His best friend is a girl his age, Little Luki... who wants to become a mighty warrior too. Except, in their culture, girls don't grow up to become warriors. The two friends have no idea about the world outside their isolated mountain village until a boy from the 'Lowlands' turns up... a boy who can speak many tongues and who tells stories about the world outside that seem ridiculous and unbelievable. Especially the part about invaders called 'Americans' who are coming to take over! Paperback, 252 pages.
