It is finally time for Little Hawk to go into the woods alone with only a metal knife, a bow and arrows, and the tomahawk his father made for him. He must survive three moons in the wild, and then return to his village a man. He returns to a village ravaged by disease, however, and he is forced to interact with the new settlers and his own people in a way he has never experienced. After Little Hawk dies at the hands of a settler, a young man named John Wakely realizes how prejudiced the colonies are against the native tribes. He creates a friendship with Little Hawk’s spirit, but finds out that very few of his fellow countrymen share his ideas. What happens to John and Little Hawk? Find out in August when Ghost Hawk comes out. Personally I didn’t enjoy this book as much, but that’s because I typically don’t read historical fiction. If you liked Crispin: The Cross of Lead, however, you’ll like this book.
