Moccasin Trail

Jim Keath was saved by the Crow Indians and spent the next six years living and learning their way of life.  This is who Jim was... a Crow.  That is until he leaves the Indians and is sort after by his brother and sister, who have lost their parents and need him to purchase land.  Jim is reunited with his family yet finds it hard to fit in with their culture.  As he adapts he finds it hard to fit into either culture.  His brother and sister also find it hard excepting and understanding his way of living.  Together they realise that to survive they need to accept each other and truly reunite as a family.
This book is well written.  I read it aloud to my children and they really enjoyed it.  They have asked for more books by the author, as they enjoyed the description in the novel.
I recommend this book for 11+ if reading independently, depending on reading confidence.  As a read-aloud I highly recommend for any age.
This was available from: Book Depository, Fishpond and amazon
