About this title

Synopsis:

Based on extensive research in the Fort Langley archives, this novel offers a rich and colourful portrait of the Hawaiians’ role as "servants" of the Hudson’s Bay Company in the 1830s and their relations with the Native peoples of the northwest coast. Susan Dobbie takes us inside the world of Kimo Kanui, a young Kanaka man who leaves his native Hawaii in the early nineteenth century at a time when thousands of his people were leaving to find work abroad. For Kimo, the new life proves transformative as he grows to enjoy life "on the edge." He becomes deeply involved with the natives through his growing love for the half-Kwantlen, half-French Canadian woman, Rose Fanon, and when her life is threatened by marauders, he breaks Company rules to rescue her. As his attachment to Rose and the land grows, he foresees a time when the Company will no longer control the territory, when men can freely trade and lay claim to the land.

About the Author:

Susan Dobbie was born and educated in Edinburgh, Scotland. After immigrating to Canada, she worked with her husband in the family business and raised three children. She received her B.A. from Simon Fraser University as a mature student and for ten years has worked as a volunteer docent at the Langley Centennial Museum, where she gained an in-depth understanding of the early Hawaiians living on the Northwest Coast. When Eagles Call is her first novel. She lives in Langley and at Harrison Lake, BC.
