This book is great, it is now one of my favorite books. So great that I even used on a book report. It's a great book for everyone, even my grandpa wants to read it!(He reads all books, he LOVES books and cowboy/indian things!) ANYWAYS Moccasin Trail is a great book to read and I recommend it to everybody who likes cowboy stories and such. Also, to people who like good books, of course!

I think Moccasin Trail is great book. It shows how Jim Keath, a white man who has lived with the Indians for 6 years, reunites with his family. Take the trail with Jim and read Moccasin Trail.It will touch your heart! I had to read it for school. I'm in 5th grade. Read it for your own pleasure! Any comments are welcome e-mail me back.

this was an awesome book, writen by a talented writer. This book drew me in, and I wanted to stay. This book just didn't have to be about an indian, it's about everyone looking for themselves. Jim Keath was more then and indian or white boy, or mountain man, he was a wild boy waiting to be tammed. When he was found he was accepted but didn't accept them. This is a truley wonderful book.
