THE DARK HORSE
New York : Wendy Lamb Books,
IL 5-8, RL 7.2
inside the closed society of the Storn. The tribe has very little
contact with the outside world. Every now and then a trading ship
stops by but the Storn keeps to itself. The story is told mainly
by young Sigurd. He and his family took in a strange girl who was
raised by wolves. Although she had trouble settling into the life
of the village at first, she has since become a beloved part of the family.
Sigurd feels a particular bond with her. He even gives up his position
on the fishing boat to stay on shore and do menial tasks with little Mouse.
Life is hard in the village. There has been little fish to eat and
the grain stores are dwindling. Things are looking bleak. Just
when things seem too discouraging, a stranger appears in the village.
But is he bringing good fortune or evil?
