Ghost Hawk by Susan Cooper
Synopsis: 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 ten 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.
