Born to a white family and captured by Mohicans at age four, Echohawk is now thirteen. He and his father, Glickihigan, and little brother, Bamaineo, are all that remains of the once thriving Monhican settlement in the Hudson valley. They set off for the Ohio Territory, where they hope to find more of their people, burdened with the frightening knowledge that the government is offering a ransom for any captive returned to white society. Echohawk is ready to face hunger, fatigue, and the usual hazards of a long journey on foot, but the real threat to the survival of the Turtle clan wears a human face. With sensitively drawn characters and a vividly realized setting, this sequel to the acclaimed Echohawk is an action-filled adventure that clearly depicts the pull of conflicting loyalties and the clash of cultures in eighteenth-century America. Afterword.
