The woman sat in the door of the cabin rocking in her chair. With the hem of her apron she fanned herself, saying over and over, "Where is that boy? Where is that boy?" (from the first line)
"Faced with the imminent danger of attack by marauding Indians while both his parents are away, twelve-year-old Dewey Martin prevails upon his grandmother to escape by means of his homemade log raft".--Booklist.
From the Publisher:
When he builds his raft, a twelve-year-old boy never dreams that it will serve as the sole means of escape for him and his grandmother when hostile Indians threaten their prairie cabin.
Author Bio
Betsy Cromer Byars
Betsy Byars is well known for her series of books about a young boy named Bingo Brown and her series on members of the Blossom family, including WANTED...MUD BLOSSOM, about the family dog. She is a graduate of North Carolina's Queens College. Byars won the Newbery Medal in 1970 for THE SUMMER OF THE SWANS, in which a young adolescent girl comes to terms with her family and herself. A dedicated pilot, Betsy Byars even lived in a house on an airstrip--the house's bottom level was an airplane hanger while the top level contained her writing studio.
