His Indian Brother by Hazel Wilson

His Indian Brother

By Hazel Wilson
Level 6

Brad and his father paddle up the river to land they have just purchased in the wilds of Maine. After building a simple cabin and starting a garden, Brad’s father leaves to get the rest of his family. Brad is brave and industrious while his father is gone, but the young teenager starts to worry when he sees signs of Indians passing through the area. Things, however, go terribly wrong for Brad, and it appears his father may never return. Will he need the help of the Indians to survive? Based loosely on a true experience, this exciting book shows how two very different teenage boys, both of whom think they are superior to the other, learn important life lessons about respect, tolerance, humility, brotherhood, hard work, and appreciation. Beautiful writing, wonderful messages, an engaging plot, and fantastic educational value make this book a top pick. This is just the kind of book that engenders the love of reading worthwhile, uplifting books.
