White Bird Returns

La description

White Bird Returns White Bird was born under very strange circumstances. His mother Sweentouk had just given birth when a band of strange Indians passed nearby. One of the men began chasing her and she knew she couldn't outrun him and hid the baby in a hollow tree. He got his name from a Great Snowy Owl that lived in that tree. Later, White Bird would be an outcast from his own tribe and join with a band of French trapper. He would begin a journey of thousands of miles because of that association, but it would be the English that carried him back to the old world as a bonded slave. During this period he would be captured by the Iroquois Indians to be sold in slavery. He would escape and become a lifelong enemy to the Iroquois who he continually outfoxes throughout his association with them. He also meets his future wife during his first encounter with these slave trading Indians. Naragomset will be his lifelong partner and the mother of his children. His return and experiences is the story in this book. He faces many, many challenges and one great challenge is a more than twenty year separation from his wife and two sons. His destiny is to find an Irish lad who will accompany him back to the New World and become the most famous chief in all of Wisnook history. The Irish lad, Alvy will become the guiding spirit of the Wisnook tribe for a thousand years and is the spirit behind all of the books about the Wisnook Indians.
