The first English edition of the popular young adult novel Les fant mes de Spiritwood originally published in French by ...ditions de la nouvelle plume translated by the author

One summer night Ethan and four friends are heading north of Spiritwood Saskatchewan for a weekend of camping to watch the northern lights but their car swerves off the road and ends up in the ditch. The teenagers head back to Spiritwood on foot but a severe thunderstorm strikes before they reach the town forcing them to break into an abandoned country school to take shelter. After exchanging scary stories for a while they fall asleep. When they wake a few hours later the storm is over and the sky is filled with bright-coloured northern lights.

Ethan recounts the legend of the northern lights. "Those lights are produced by the spirits of the departed. It's a sign that they want to communicate with the living. To establish contact we just have to whistle at them." Then Ethan produces a spirit whistle that he had bought at Wanuskewin and he starts to whistle at the sky.

Moments later weird things begin to happen...
