KIRKUS REVIEW

This story doesn't quite come off. Set in America in 1643 it concerns an English lad, Peter Hale; his experiences while living for a year with an Indian tribe; his escape to warn Jamestown of an impending raid; and his subsequent journey by land and sea to the Massachusetts Colony in search of his uncle, Roger Tillotson. It is too loosely constructed to be convincing -- characters that appear to be important fade out of the picture completely, and the ending is disappointing.
