Publisher's Summary

"Johnny Butler was just four years old when his Lenni Lenape "father," Cuyloga, spoke the words that siphoned out his white blood and put Indian blood in its place. Now the Yengwes, the white soldiers, were taking him back to his "true" home. Inside of him hate and anger spread like poisons. The Light in the Forest, by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Conrad Richter, will touch a new generation with its lasting truths.

Wrong story

This is not the right story at all. I wanted to read along with my book and it's not even the right book.

Short, but it packs a punch!

What great lessons are to be learned from this story. I think I could become a Conrad Richter fan. This book had so much to say in a short time, and it left the drawing of morals up to the reader. The young protagonist of this story, True Son, was left in the middle of the whole mess, not knowing which way to turn. It was brilliantly written

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.
