I really liked this book. I enjoy historical fiction and this one was very interesting.

This story takes place on Mackinac Island in the Great Lakes. The island was the center of the fur trade in the late 18th and early 19th century. The island, the Great Lakes, and the scenes of nature are beautifully described. The story revolves around the cultural clash between the Native American (Chippewa), American and French (of French Canada)cultures. The main character is the daughter of the famed Indian fighter Tecumsah (he, however, was not Chippewa). She grows up on Mackinac during the height of the fur trade and has to make her own way. This book would appeal to all ages, but especially to people who live, or spend their summers, on the Great Lakes.
