WOLF BROTHER by Jim Kjelgaard

Email this review


Mr. Kjelgaard contributes another superior tale of outdoor adventure and historical significance in this chronicle of Apache fighters of Arizona's 1880's, as the last frontier was being inexorably scaled off by written treaties and mustached American cavalrymen. Jonathan, whose Indian name is Wolf Brother, experiences in sequence the white man's schools, the degrading red man's reservation, flight from a cavalry manhunt, life as an Apache outlaw, capture, and escape from a life sentence aboard a Florida-bound prison train. Wolf Brother, chosen by the last fighting Apaches to lead his people into the new world of co-existence with the whites, discharges his trust with intelligence and courage.
