This book was O.K., but I didn't really like it. It's all about an Indian named John that is accused of killing a white trapper. He is going to be put on trial for murder and if he gets convicted, he will be sentenced to hang. Rebecca is trying to save him, but all the town is against John, so in the end, he is sentenced to hang. Rebecca doesn't like this, so she goes and cuts the rope he will be hung on. The rope ends up breaking when John is hanged and he escapes from the whites. I learned that you should not hate someone because of race.
