The Light in the Forest, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Conrad Richter, will touch a new generation with its lasting truths.

    Story
    "Early America in Check"

    This book brings the view of the author towards early American inhabitants, who were taken by Indians and adopted into the tribe. These children, later returned to the white people, longed to go back to their Indian families, and this conflict is well written in a very involving manner here.
    This book brings many reflections upon our moral values, and the hypocritical world in which we live today.
    I just feel as if the protagonist's story was left incomplete. Disappointing.
