A Tale of Hard Work and Hard Won Friendship and Respect

Rated 5 out of 5

Wow, what a great tale of a young teen boy left to care for a new homestead all alone while waiting for his father and family to return. I didn’t want to stop reading about his hardships and to see what would happen next. I can’t imagine having to leave my boy alone in the woods like that to fend for himself for so long. The book also speaks of hard won respect and friendship with the native people. Definitely worth reading.


Similar feel to Sign of the Beaver

If you’ve read The Sign of the Beaver, this story may remind you of that.
However, this would still be a great addition to your home library.
It’s easy to get caught up in the characters. I found myself agreeing with each of the main characters at different-which shows how engaging this book can be. It’s fun to see how they work out their differences. I feel it’s a great example of how we can relate that to our lives as well.
It’s a great rabbit trail book as you think and disuss the different situations they find themselves in.

My 9, 10 and 12 years old boys particularly loved this book. It contains adventure and great detail about surviving in the woods and honouring nature.

My children really loved this book. I read a chapter out of it every morning before school. They love reading the Good and the Beautiful books.

Brad and his father paddle up the river to the land they have just purchased in the wilds of Maine. After building a simple cabin and starting a garden, Brad’s father leaves to get the rest of his family. Brad is brave and industrious while his father is gone, but the young teenager starts to worry when he sees signs of Indians passing through the area. Things, however, go terribly wrong for Brad, and it appears his father may never return. Will he need the help of the Indians to survive?

Based loosely on a true experience, this exciting book shows how two very different teenage boys, both who think they are superior to the other, learn important life lessons about respect, tolerance, humility, brotherhood, hard work, and appreciation.
