About This Book
Eight-year-old Kahu, a member of the Maori tribe of Whangara, New Zealand,
fights to prove her love, her leadership, and her destiny. Her people claim
descent from Kahutia Te Rangi, the legendary "whale rider." In every generation
since Kahutia, a male heir has inherited the title of chief. But now there is no
male heir, and the aging chief is desperate to find a successor. Kahu is his
only great-grandchild--and Maori tradition has no use for a girl. But when
hundreds of whales beach themselves and threaten the future of the Maori tribe,
it is Kahu who saves the tribe when she reveals that she has the whale rider's
ancient gift of communicating with whales.
