A member of the Abenaki tribe, he works with his mother selling hand-made baskets. The author bases this story on the life of his own ancestor, a young Native from Canada who joined up in the Civil War mostly for the promised money that would go to give War stories are not my first choice when looking for a genre, but I picked this one up with a particular student in mind who truly enjoys them. A really strong and spiritualistic main character, Louis, grabbed my heart strings from the start.
