    Sign of the Beaver


    Matt’s father leaves their wilderness cabin with the promise that he will return. Until then, the 12-year-old boy knows that he must bravely fend for himself. Time passes without a sign of his father and Matt nearly dies when he disturbs a bee hive.

    Thankfully, Attean, a First Nations teen and his father, the chief, rescue him in the nick of time. A lot of time passes and eventually Matt teaches Attean how to speak English and Attean teaches Matt how to hunt.

    Realizing that the boy’s father will probably never return, the chief asks him to join the tribe. Should Matt leave his old life as a white settler child behind and start fresh as a Penobscot?
