      I read this in the 60s in my youth Absolutely loved it It was my fantasy life for much of my growing up It made me think about resiliency, frugality, respect for nature and what it means to be a good person Some of the terminology may not hold up the best with time or be the best written book but certainly made an impact on me.

      This had great historical reasearch and I enjoyed learning how the Indians of the early 1700 s lived and functioned It was a great young adult book and quite fasinating.
