A follow-up to Next Spring An Oriole, this book book tells the story of the forced removal of the Potawatami Indians from Lower Michigan from the perspective of a sympathetic white girl.

This story has some great adventure, and a moving cross-cultural friendship at its heart. It deals with a dark event in American history in a way that is true but sensitive to young readers (2nd-3rd grade level).

1841, near Saginaw, Michigan.

Libby Mitchell and her family are good friends with Fawn and her family. When Libby sneaks off to visit the Potawatomi village so she can attend the naming ceremony of Fawn's little brother, she along with the entire village is rounded up by soldiers and forced West. Fawn's father assures Libby that he'll find a way to get her home and Libby hopes that he is right.

This book (other than the setting) reminded me of "Cherokee Sister" by Debbie Dadey.

This was a "read aloud" to my 4th graders who thoroughly enjoyed it. As this is book #2 of a series, some are now interested in reading the other books on their own.
