THE SIGN OF THE BEAVER

25th of September
The best part about THE SIGN OF THE BEAVER was when Attean and Matt were walking through the forest and they heard a growl and they saw a bear. They both froze and then Matt threw his rabbit that he had caught at the bear and suddenly Attean shot an arrow and hit the bear in the head and then Attean shot another arrow that hit it in the tummy. Then both of the boys put their knives in the bear and after they had killed it they had a party at the Indian village.

By Elizabeth George Speare / Random House, Inc


Now that twelve-year-old Matt and his father have finished building a comfortable cabin for their family in the Maine wilderness, Matt's father must leave to bring the rest of the family to the new settlement. Until the day his father returns, Matt must try to survive on his own. Matt is brave, but he's not prepared for an attack by swarming bees, and he's astonished when he's rescued by an Indian chief and his grandson, Attean. As the boys come to know each other, Attean learns to speak English, while Matt becomes a skilled hunter. Many months pass with no sign of Matt's family. Then Attean asks Matt to join the Beaver tribe and move north. Should Matt abandon his hopes of ever seeing his family again and go on to a new life? Recommended for ages 10 to 14. A 1984 Newbery Honor book.
