Publisher's Summary

From Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper, a story of adventure and friendship between a young Native American and a colonial New England settler.

On the winter day Little Hawk is sent into the woods alone, he can take only a bow and arrows, his handcrafted tomahawk, and the amazing metal knife his father traded for with the new white settlers. If Little Hawk survives three moons by himself, he will be a man.

John Wakely is only 10 when his father dies, but he has already experienced the warmth and friendship of the nearby tribes. Yet his fellow colonists aren't as accepting of the native people. When he is apprenticed to a barrel-maker, John sees how quickly the relationships between settlers and natives are deteriorating. His friendship with Little Hawk will put both boys in grave danger.

The intertwining stories of Little Hawk and John Wakely are a fascinating tale of friendship and an eye-opening look at the history of our nation. Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper also includes a timeline and an author's note that discusses the historical context of this important and moving novel.

    Story
    "Wonderful book!"

    This was a wonderful book yet sad in that it shows the cruelty of the white settlers towards the Native Americans. This is the story of so many peoples who are misunderstood and who are mistreated because others want what they have. The story is well written and, as always, Jim Dale did a superb narration.

    Story
    "Fine Historical Novel"

    Although classified as YA - Young Adult - this is a thoughtful, sometimes painful story filled to the brim with detailed descriptions of daily life among the local Native Americans and the early settlers. It also describes socioeconomic realities like the apprenticeship program and New-World religious persecution. It peels away some of our most pervasive myths - noble Squanto, for example. Highly recommended for ages 10+.

    "Enjoyed so much listened to it twice"

    The story line was unpredictable. Even though it was fictional it was believable. Great book for whole family to listen to on a road trip.

    "excellent!!"
    Would you listen to Ghost Hawk again? Why?

    I wold highly recommend this for just listening, or for a junior high school reading text, the history is accurate, the story is wonderful and the use of historical fiction would ignite the time period for students.
