"Thirteen-year-old Matt's vividly and sensitively related in this compelling novel."
From the Publisher
Annotation In late 18th-century Maine, 12-year-old Matthew is left alone in his family's newly built cabin for several weeks while his father returns to Massachusetts to fetch the entire family. A series of mishaps leads to Matthew's rescue by the chief of the Beaver tribe. Over a period of months, Matthew teaches an Indian boy, Attean, English, while he learns a great deal about hunting. When the tribe plans to travel, Matthew must make the most challenging decision of his life: to join them, or continue waiting for his family to return. A stirring pioneer tale of perseverance and cooperation, this was a 1984 Newbery Honor Book. The same author wrote THE WITCH OF BLACKBIRD POND, the 1959 Newbery Medal recipient.
