    " Totally a guy book. But, as a girl reading it, I must say that I stayed interested the whole time! Matt and his father, in the 18th century, go to Maine to get everything ready for his mother and sister's arrival such as building the log cabin and planting crops. But Matt's father must go back to get the girls and Matt is left alone in the cabin for the time. Things happen that he can't control and he must learn how to deal with these things until finally some local Indians have pity on him and help him in many ways. This was actually a pretty good book and I can see why it won the Newbery Honor. "
