Wait for Me, Watch for Me, Eula Bee

(1978)
A novel by

 
A sense of dramatic irony marks this exciting novel about a young boy who struggles to carry out the rescue of his four-year-old sister from the Comanches and then encounters resistance where he least expects it.

The only survivors of an Indian raid on their Texas farm, Lewallen and Eula Bee are taken captive. Kept apart in the village, Lewallen whistles his sister's favorite song to remind her he is near. After a daring escape, he meets a former neighbor named Cabral, who has always been mistrusted by Lewallen's family. However, because Cabral's two children are also captives of the Comanches, they reluctantly set out together to ransom them and on the way find unexpected kinship. Despite setbacks and agonizing delays, Lewallen finally sets out on his dangerous mission and forces a confrontation with the Kiowa brave who killed his family - the same man Eula Bee now looks to for protection. Patricia Beatty's affecting novel of courage and determination is set against a realistic background of frontier life in the 1860s.

"An excellent historical novel." The Horn Book

"An exciting story of the Western frontier." School Library Journal

"Tightly plotted and eventful." Booklist
