Twelve-year-old Matt is left on his own in the Maine wilderness while his father leaves to bring the rest of the family to their new settlement. When he befriends Attean, an Indian chief’s grandson, he is invited to join the Beaver tribe and move north. Should Matt abandon his hopes of ever seeing his family again and go on to a new life?


From the Trade Paperback edition.In the late eighteenth century, eleven-year-old Matt befriends an Indian boy of the Beaver clan who helps him survive alone in the wilderness.
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.
