After reading the first book, Incident at Hawk's Hill by Eckert, my class begged to read the second book. I enjoyed it, though I do understand their chief complaint that it repeated many ideas in from the first book. What I liked best about it was its theme: do not judge others or their actions until you know them. My students wanted more action and mostly do not care to think about theme unless forced to:).

So our final on this one was not a test, but any essay detailing why they liked or hated

Although Eckert wrote this 25 years after writing Incident at Hawk's Hill, it flows seamlessly. I love how both of these stories promote understanding and love of differences in people and between people. The only bad race is a bad human or animal.

The writing is beautiful and the relationships between the characters are strong.

Thanks for the sequel Mr. Eckert.

Sequel to Incident at Hawk's Hill, I had to read it to see what happened. I enjoy it, a nice comfortable story with a good ending. My sixth graders enjoy it as well.

Didn't love it like the Incident at Hawk's Hill. But I do think adventurous boys would enjoy the story. It's been a while since I read juvenile fiction!

A sweet children's book I ran across. It's a sequel, so now I want to read its predecessor.

Interesting sequel with an exciting storyline, in parts a bit more like a textbook (on Cree/Metis lifestyle and the history of government and settler interactions with the natives) than a story but still a fun, educational, quick read.

Disappointing -- the original Hawk's Hill is fabulous, and made more incredible by the fact that it is based on a true story. This one is ever-so-much more contrived. Probably the only time I've ever been disappointed by Allan Eckert!

This book is really good. Its sad how the boys badger died but great how he handled it. I really think you should reconmend it.

A little preachy and not nearly enough animal interaction for my taste, but a good read.
