Tuesday, October 15, 2013: Where would we be without whites who like Indians?
And read Elizabeth Bird's review, too: Review of the Day: Ghost Hawk by Susan Cooper.
Below is my first post on Ghost Hawk, posted on June 5, 2013.
On Monday, June 3rd, I received (from a colleague) an advanced reader copy of Susan Cooper's Ghost Hawk. My thoughts, as I read, are in italics.
"I was that son. Because Flying Hawk was my father, the name they were giving me was Little Hawk" (p. 6).
"South of here, not far from the Pokanoket village of Sowams, where our great sachem Yellow Feather lived, a trader from across the sea had invited a number of our people aboard his ship and suddenly, for no reason, had killed them all." (p. 94)
