A great book with interesting sort of plot through it. Jan 1, 1999
A boy named Matt is left alone in Maine Woods. His father has left him to go and get his new baby sister. The really cool things happen when a boy is left in the woods with Indians. Matt and an Indian meet and the book get really good. I think that the best thing in this book is the relationship and the way it changes. They start out as true enemies, but weird events in this story make the relationship grow. The amazing part is the reactions that Attean (the Indian) has. Also the stories he tells. This is a great book with a really great plot and very fun to read. I really enjoyed it.
