In a world where dreams are belittled and apathy has become a staple, War Party proves that one unlikely hero can still make a difference. Tommy Galiwee, a native-American teen, wants desperately to be a warrior despite having been taught that Indian warriors no longer exist. Criticized and harassed by his father and tribal elders, Tommy sets out to prove he is much more than an idle dreamer.
In a world where genetically altered humans herd commercial tuna on the open ocean, Olga, a third-generation bio-engineered “shepherd” and two shipmates live aboard the Factory raft, Homestead. Commercial tuna farming has all but wiped out the wild fishing industry, so when Toivo Nurminen, an independent Finnish trawler captain, discovers a shepherd raft’s murdered crew, he suspects embittered fishermen. In radioing for help, he alerts the real killers, marking his ship for death. Injured and adrift, Toivo is rescued by the Homestead. When Homestead’s crew investigates other raft attacks they uncover a deadly drug operation. Despite emotional conflict, Toivo and Olga unite, and with their shipmates and dolphins, ingeniously fight against overwhelming odds.
