Item description for Nacar: The White Deer (Living History Library) by Elizabeth Borton de Trevino...

Location: North America, Mexico Time Period: Early Modern Era (1500-1700 A.D.), New World Settlement Mexico 1630 A deep friendship springs up between a boy, who had lost his voice and his mother at the same tragic moment, and an ailing albino deer sent from China as a gift to the King of Spain. It is Lalo's task to nurture the sick deer back to health in the mountains of Mexico so that he will be well enough for the sea voyage to Spain. This gentle story of Mexico in 1630 follows young Lalo on his journey back to the Mountain of the Sleeping Lady. The journey and months the deer and the boy spend with Lalo's goats are full both of dangers found in a wild landscape and of charming incidents found in a people brimming with life and faith. As with any friendship there is sorrow as well as joy, and Lalo grows in wisdom and courage as he comes to accept even the uncertainties and difficulties of the trust he has been given. By the Newbery Award-winning author (I, Juan de Pareja, 1966) of My Heart Lies South.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nacar: The White Deer (Living History Library)?

A sweet little story  Jul 1, 2007
This is the tale of a young, mute Indian boy named Lalo and his gift with animals. Lalo, an orphaned goatherd in 17th century Mexico, is given charge of a very special creature--a white deer sent from the orient to be a gift to the King of Spain. The deer is named Nacar and he's in bad shape after a perilous journey from the Orient in the hold of a galleon. It's up to Lalo to nurse the deer back to health and shepherd him across Mexico to disembark for Spain.

Nacar the White Deer is a gentle story easily read by kids and young as 10. It's light on the action and the "nuzzling" and "cuddling" might be a little much for your average young boy reader, but it's a good tale nonetheless with a bit of a surprise ending.
