White Bird Returns

White Bird was born under very strange circumstances. His mother Sweentouk had just given birth when a band of strange Indians passed nearby. One of the men began chasing her and she knew she couldn't outrun him and hid the baby in a hollow tree. He got his name from a Great Snowy Owl that lived in that tree.

Later, White Bird would be an outcast from his own tribe and join with a band of French trapper. He would begin a journey of thousands of miles because of that association, but it would be the English that carried him back to the old world as a bonded slave. During this period he would be captured by the Iroquois Indians to be sold in slavery. He would escape and become a lifelong enemy to the Iroquois who he continually outfoxes throughout his association with them. He also meets his future wife during his first encounter with these slave trading Indians. Naragomset will be his lifelong partner and the mother of his children.

His return and experiences is the story in this book. He faces many, many challenges and one great challenge is a more than twenty year separation from his wife and two sons. His destiny is to find an Irish lad who will accompany him back to the New World and become the most famous chief in all of Wisnook history. The Irish lad, Alvy will become the guiding spirit of the Wisnook tribe for a thousand years and is the spirit behind all of the books about the Wisnook Indians.

Meet the Author

The author published his first book in 1979, In Search of Paradise, now in the fourth edition. After retiring from teaching, he decided that he wanted to continue helping young people read more and understand better what they were reading. He realized that interest and the feeling of association gave more support to reading better than anything else. During his many years of teaching, he found that the student who read well made the best grades and profited the most from the educational system. His goal is to offer easy reading material which is interesting and challenging and makes the use of the reader's own imagination and problem solving skills. This book is part of a third series and much of the written material is relevant to the two book series that have already been written and with six in the market place as of this writing. There are five books in each of the two series and it is expected that the books will be read in the order that is intended.

Dr Robert E McGinnis was raised on land that was once settled by a large Indian population and grew up on property that was once an Indian settlement which was laden with thousands of visible artifact, many of which were just at the surface and required no searching at all. He developed a closeness with those who once lived there and has felt that association ever since.
