I read this book to my fourth grade class when I was teaching years ago. The students loved the interesting narrative which involves a shipwrecked boy from England who lives among the Indians.

I first read this book many years ago, when it was given to me as a sixth grader. It is a fascinating and (I think) well-researched book depicting the lifestyle of the original inhabitants of southern New Jersey. Told from the point of view of a young English boy who is shipwrecked, the story tells of the religious beliefs and ecologically sound way of life of the Lenni Lenape in a way that is never condescending. The boy, Dickon, seems to have an altogether great time living with the Lenape, and at the end, it's almost a disappointment when he is rescued by another English ship. I highly recommend this book.
