It has been also classified as multicultural, ecofiction and cli-fi (climate change fiction).Drawing on her experience growing up in a family blending indigenous Alaskans and Outsiders, Thomas tells the story of a Native woman who studies shamanism and conflicts with a bird scientist during a time of great cultural and ecological change.There was a war and a university, an oil company and a small village, all run by men.

There was a young man who hunted geese to feed his family and another who studied geese to save them. And there was a young woman who flew into the world of spirits to save herself...So relates Kayuqtuq Ugungoraseok, the red fox. An orphan traumatized by her past, she seeks respect in her traditional Inupiat village through the outlawed path of shamanism.

Her plan leads to tragedy when she interferes with scientist Leif Trygvesen, who has come to research the effects of oil spills on salt marshes - and evade the draft.Told from both Kayuqtuqs and Leifs perspectives, Flight of the Goose is a tale of cultural conflict, spiritual awakening, redemption and love in a time when things were, to use the phrase of an old arctic shaman, no longer familiar.
