Item description for The Choctaw Code by Brent K. Ashabranner & Russell G. Davis...
Overview Together they navigate the secrets of the forest-a boy of fifteen and a wise and honorable Choctaw. One prepares for the life ahead of him, while the other prepares to leave his life behind. Suddenly his mood changed and he was scared. Or at least if he wasn't scared, he felt creepy, like something was going to happen. He sat up on a log and he shivered a little, even though it was very hot and humid in the undergrowth. He saw nothing and heard nothing, but he knew that something was different now. He noticed that it was quieter than it had been; there were fewer bird calls and no rustling noises of small animals in the brush. Then out of the corner of one eye, he was aware of something standing beside the trunk of the big cottonwood tree, something that hadn't been standing there a moment before. Tom turned his head slowly and gasped.

The Choctaw Code May 16, 2000
Good reading for impressinable youngsters. Issues dealing with integrity, clashing cultures and a man who chooses not to take the easy way out. Inspiring.
a good example of respecting values of different cultures Jul 16, 1998
The Choctaw Code is one of my all time favorites and was an especially liked read aloud chapter book for my fifth grade students in Atoka, Oklahoma. Readers relate to the growing beautiful friendship between Jim and the boy and the values being taught by example of the Choctaw people's way of dealing with justice and life. The story paints a picture of unselfish communication between two people of two very different cultures. I am pleased that it is back in print.
