juno (junothrp) | 8 comments - goes back to his original hometown years later and starts to remember pieces of it.
- Part where he spills a bowl of oatmeal/soup causing him to remember puking and being kidnapped, if I remember correctly, he eventually realizes the evil his people are doing and goes back to his original life/family/town.

Avery, can you tell us more about the boy - how did he get separated from his family, what jobs/skills do his parents have, any siblings/friends, do they live in a small U.S. prairie town or are they traveling in a wagon train (going to where), etc.?

juno (junothrp) | 8 comments The Native Americans captured him, after that there is little mention of his parents or old life.

He's playing hide & seek (with who?) and hiding in a log? Who are his birth parents, and where were they born?

He might've been playing hide and seek with his sibling, and I'm not sure his parents are a significant part of the story. From what I remember, they are barely mentioned until later on in the book.

No, none of those look familiar. I think the title of the book was short and included the name of an animal.
