Raymond, a fourteen year old Aboriginal boy, is torn between two cultures. He lives in a blended family with all of the modern conveniences of a white Canadian family, yet wants to learn more about his Aboriginal culture. His Cree mother tries to shelter him from the pain of the past. As a rebellious teenager, he learns about his grandfather (mosôm) from a Cree woman (elder) in Old Town. His grandfather went missing in a blizzard on Dog Island in Lesser Slave Lake and has never been found. Raymond restores an old snowmobile and takes a winter excursion to the island with his twelve year old step brother Larry, to find some clues about the disappearance of his grandfather. The trip ends in a serious crash on an ice ridge. Raymond uses his first aid and winter survival skills to prevent death from hypothermia. During this time, he discovers a mystery on the island. Does he find Mosôm? Read the book and find out.
