The Screech Owls' Northern Adventure (#3): The Screech Owls #3

by Roy Macgregor

McClelland & Stewart | July 15, 1996 | Mass Market Paperbound

The Screech Owls' Northern Adventure (#3): The Screech Owls #3 is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
The Screech Owls are on the road again, on a bumpy plane ride way up North that will land them in some very deep trouble!

When Jesse Highboy’s dad asked the Screech Owls how they felt about going to James Bay to play in the First Nations Peewee Hockey Tournament, everyone thought it was a great idea.

It was the first time a non-native team had been invited, and the pressure would be on the Owls to live up to the honour and play some good clean hockey. More important, Travis and his teammates would also get the chance to stay with local native families, eat traditional food, travel by Ski-Doo, and experience what life in the North is all about.

But freezing to death all alone in the bush, with a storm howling and the dreaded Trickster stalking the night? No one had asked the Screech Owls how they felt about that!

The Screech OwlsNorthern Adventure is the third book in the Screech Owls Series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a book! I think that this is a great adventure for kids of around the age of 9-14.

He still plays old-timers hockey and has been a minor-hockey coach for more than a decade.

Roy MacGregor is the author of several classics in the literature of hockey. Home Game (written with Ken Dryden) and The Home Team were both number one national bestsellers. He has also written the game’s best-known novel, The Last Season. His other books include Road Games, The Seven A.M. Practice, and A Life in the Bush, a memoir of his father. He has also written books about native leaders and the Ottawa Valley.

Roy MacGregor is now a senior columnist for the National Post. He and his wife, Ellen, live in Kanata, Ontario. They have four children, Kerry, Christine, Jocelyn, and Gordon.
