Being only twenty-seven years old, he never stops to consider his own mortality. He plans for the future, yet he has only two years to live. He has so much to learn about life and so little time in which to learn it.
This inlet is located in British Columbia, a beautiful Canadian Province in the far northwestern part of North America.
When Mark arrives, he thinks the villagers, who are his congregation, all look alike. He believes they lead a simple life and are generally ignorant about the ways of the world. Mark grows to love the people, and they grow to love him. He sees that the Indians are not at all the same, that each is unique.
Mark does everything he can to help and comfort the people. They, in turn, teach him the meaning of life. On the second day after his arrival in the village, Mark comes to know the rules, which the Indians of the village have to follow.
For instance they aren't allowed to bury the dead body of a little Indian boy until the RCMP officer hasn't observed it to permit the funeral, although the boy died ten days ago in an accident and all the time has lain out in a hut.
Finally the RCMP constable arrives and doesn't apologise for coming so late but complains of the fact, that the dead body was brought into the village despite the rule that 'in an accident the body mustn't be moved'. After the constable has departed the Indians and their new vicar bury the young boy.
By this way Mark is told that in the old days each family had its own grave tree, on which the boxes were hoisted by ropes and tied one above another in the tops. As he notices at the burial ground many of them have fallen and so also have the grave sheds that were built later and most of the old carvings.
Months later the vicar would help the Indians to give the bones of their ancestors a last place of rest at a new burial ground. The first time in the village Mark is very lonely because the Indians certainly are very polite but held a distance to the newcomer.
But during the following months the people of the village come to know their vicar better than he knows himself and they respect and like him of his own.
A deep friendship develops between the young vicar and Jim Wallace, a young Indian, who navigates the float at the different trips of the vicar, for instance to extended Indian families, other tribes or to Alert Bay, where he once meets his twin sister and notices that he has become estranged from his white friends.
Jim also learns him to steer a boat or a float. Already at his first meetings with the Kwakiutl Indians Mark notices the deep sadness not only in Jim's eyes but also in the eyes of the other Indians. First he has no explain for it but with the time he begins to understand. He learns what the Bishop meant when he said that 'The Indian knows his village and feels for his village as no white man for his country, his town, or even for his own bit of land.
His village is not the strip of land. The myths are the village and the winds and the rains. The river is the village, and the black and white killer whales. The village is the salmon who comes up the river to spawn, the seal who follows the salmon. The village is the talking bird, the owl, who calls the name of the man who is going to die, and the silver-tipped grizzly who ambles into the village.
The fifty-foot totem by the church is the village, and the Cedar-man who stands at the bottom holding up the eagle, the wolf and the raven! They no longer listen when the elders speak.
So do the young Indians who have to go to the church residential school in Alert Bay and are allowed to visit their families at Christmas.
They only speak English and forget the words of Kwakwala and the customs of their families. They do not remember the myths and the meaning of the totems and emulate the Whites.
After school the young Indians often decide to live in the world of the Whites and fail there. Keetah, a young pretty Indian woman, also decides to go with Gordon, an Indian boy who wants to become the first university - student of the tribe, in the world of the Whites.John Russell Bartlett () was well educated in history and literature before he and a partner opened a bookstore that became popular with scholars and literary figures.
