This is a beautiful book. Chandler's sensitive and descriptive prose draw us into Addy's life, to feel her joys and pains. Her thorough knowledge of the British Columbia wilderness builds vivid pictures of the strength and endurance required to survive. Cask had taught her how to navigate by the stars...but it was difficult to see the stars through the dense treetops....Addy was woken in the dark by the rain falling through the trees...she rose and built a makeshift shelter, weaving spruce and hemlock bows... . Kootenay Silver is a lively read of a young girls adventures and coming of age in the interior mountains of British Columbia during the first world war. A must read for anyone interested in Canada's western province.

A very well written book. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. The book also taught me about life durnig that time period in Canada (world war I era). I recommended this book to my friends and teacher and they all liked it. I really enjoyed reading this book.
