"Jim DaleÕs deep tones recount the tale of Little Hawk, a young warrior of the Pokanoket tribe, and John Wakeley, a young colonist from Plymouth, Massachusetts, in the mid-1600s. Little Hawk and John meet in the wilderness, introduced by Squanto, a native interpreter. Not long afterward, Little Hawk is accidentally killed by a white colonist, yet he remains in the area as a ghost who teaches John the words and ways of the natives. With broad accents and dramatic phrasing, Dale performs this story of growing up in early America. CooperÕs words and DaleÕs performance provide a dramatic backdrop for learning about religious tolerance, hardship, and survival in New England. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
