On the winter day Little Hawk is sent into the woods alone, he can take only a bow and arrows, the tomahawk his father crafted, and the amazing metal knife that his father traded for with the new white settlers. If Little Hawk survives three moons by himself, he will be a man. But his triumphant return is crushed by the death of his entire village by disease. The rest of his life is shaped by interactions between his people and the new settlers.

John Wakely is ten when his father dies, but he has already experienced the warmth and friendship of the native tribes. He is a minority in the settlements, though, as his fellow colonists are not as accepting as he. When John is apprenticed to a barrel-maker, he sees how quickly the relationships between settlers and natives are deteriorating. Before long his friendship with Little Hawk will put both boys in grave danger.

The intertwining stories of Little Hawk and John Wakely are a fascinating tale of friendship that illuminates the history of our nation.
