Most of the references seem racist

but i believe 
I believe re historically accurate with this time periodWe didn t enjoy this book as much as Old Yeller It s a completely different type of a story and very raphic with animal killing scalping and eneral violence throughout Of course I do understand that very raphic with animal killing scalping and Judy Blume: Fearless Storyteller for Teens general violence throughout Of course I do understand that was prevalent at the time people had to survive I just didn t expect it to take up the majority of the book due to the fact that this is a children s book I thought the plot was interesting but drawn out My main issue was that nearly half the book was spent on the children being mistreated and beaten by the Native Americans In addition there s Lisbeth who s fourteen and really close toetting molested by her captor Sam has a huge part to play but really remains in the background for much of the bookI m not oing to say that reading this book was a waste of time because it surely wasn t I personally loved the detailed writing just like with Old Yeller We also appreciated the appearance of many of the original characters from the previous book Bud Searcy s character is somewhat redeemed in this installment which was nice It just wasn t as enjoyable of a read but we did still enjoy parts of the story The book also lacks the artistic element that Old Yeller possessed because there aren t many illustrations so we did miss thatOverall it was the descriptive writing of the country landscape wildlife details and of course our curiosity to discover what would happen to Sam and the family that kept us reading to the finish We ll be reading the third and final book Little Arliss nextHardcoverPublisher HarperCollins Publishers First Edition edition January 1 1962Language EnglishISBN 10 0060115602ISBN 13 978 006011560935 star.
