Little Hawk is sent into the woods with only a bow and arrows to help him survive the winter and become a man. When he returns to his village, he is not prepared for what awaits him there. This historical fiction novel describes what life was like in the 1620’s when European settlers first came to the America’s with their greed for land and resources, and their diseases.  Little Hawk tries to help John Wakeley’s father when a tree falls on him, and in return, he is cold-bloodedly murdered, and young John is sworn to secrecy.  Years later, John is visited by the spirit of Little Hawk, who tries to teach him to love and respect for the land and its resources.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award, 2015)
