Description

Wounded in a vicious attack on his village by British soldiers, 14-year-old Saxso awakens to discover his mother and two sisters have been taken prisoner. On his own, he sets out to track his family and their captors through the rugged Canadian wilderness. The author of more than 70 books for children and adults and the winner of a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas, Joseph Bruchac draws on his Abenaki cutural heritage to bring a little-known episode from colonial history to life.

Professional reviews

"Esteemed author Joseph Bruchac brings American history to life, presenting events of the mid-1700s from the point of view of "the other side." The 1759 raid on the Quebec village of St. Francis during the French and Indian War is seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old Abenaki. In the wake of destruction, Saxso must find the remaining members of his family. Robert Ramirez narrates Saxso's passion and urgency. His clipped voice and brisk pace mirror Saxso's guilt over not living up to his father's standards and the desperation of his search to locate his mother and sisters. As Saxso forges on, the lore and wisdom of survival and family traditions are interwoven. The listener comes away in awe and hoping for the possibility of a sequel, as life continues. A.R.
