Light in the Forest

by Conrad Richter, Warren Chappell (Illustrator)
Price: $15.95

The classic adventure story of a frontier boy raised by Indians.

Once upon a time, his name had been John Cameron Butler, but now it was True Son. His adopted father, a great Lenni Lenape Indian warrior, had renamed him and reared him as his own. True Son grew up to think, feel, and fight like an Indian.

But now, at fifteen, True Son was ordered to go back to the white man. The Indians had made a treaty and agreed to return all their white captives. It was an impossible situation for True Son. He couldn't understand that his people were white and not Indian. He had learned to hate the white man. And now he learned to hate his new father, his new house, his new family. He hated that name John Butler. Where did he belong now—and where could he go?
