Item description for The Wolf's Head Journal by Larry Kennedy...

Overview
Josiah Marston, at the age of fourteen, seems little different from other boys growing up in frontier Kentucky. But then his mother dies suddenly, and he and his father, Levi, a legendary Indian fighter, leave their familiar surroundings in search of a new beginning for their lives. As they begin their journey to the Ohio Country in search of a new life, they encounter a Miami Indian boy badly wounded in a fight with white militia. Their accidental meeting with the boy, his father, and the Shawnee warrior Tecumseh, as well as the mystical event that follows, lead them into an unimaginable adventure. Stalked by an unseen enemy, Josiah must learn to be a man before his time while dealing with personal issues that govern his waking moments and his troubled sleep. As their life with the Miami Indians continues, Josiah and Levi find new ways to live as father and son in their mission to bring peace between Indians and whites in the midst of mistrust, hate, and savage warfare.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wolf's Head Journal?

A Father and Son Adventure  Jan 21, 2005
The Wolf's Head Journal chronicles the travels of a father and son, Levi and Josiah Marston, as they're drawn into the conflict between the settlers and Indian tribes of Ohio during the late 1700s. It's a very real and often troubling tale of their efforts to survive and bring peace to the territory.
Their story is told from the perspective of 14 year old Josiah who keeps a journal of all he experiences during this volatile period of American history. Every moment of the day is a learning experience for the boy as he's taught to track, hunt and survive in the wilderness. When father and son are captured by Miami Indians, Josiah is exposed to a different way of life and a different way of thinking about the world and his place in it. The book will appeal to young teen readers who, like Josie, are beginning a confusing and difficult time of their lives - leaving the security of childhood and entering the enigmatic world of adults. This is where the relationship between father and son is so poignant. As a pioneer, Levi has learned valuable lessons in life and survival. He is also a man of few words, and allows his actions to serve as a model for his son. Wisely, Levi gives Josie a strong moral base and passes on knowledge he feels will help his son make good decisions. Thus enabled, Josie can meet life head on with the courage and strength to take charge of his own destiny.
I highly recommend The Wolf's Head Journal. It is well written, full of characters and action so real and compelling that the feeling of being part of the story lingers long after you've finished the book.
 
A Great Book  Nov 9, 2004
This is a book where the author makes you feel like you are on the journey with Josie and his father. You will find once you start reading it is hard to put down. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it.
 
Courage, Respect & Loyality  Oct 5, 2004
The lessons of courage, respect and loyality are powerful as are the parenting skills of a white father and an Indian father as fourteen year old Josiah Marston and his father Levi venture into the late 18rh Century Ohio Country. Historically accurate, the struggle between whites and the Miami and Shawnee Indians makes The Wolf's Head Journal a stimulating and instructive read.

A New Tale in the Old Northwest!  Sep 25, 2004
Your middle school students will be transported back in time as they are pulled into young Josiah Marston's life in the old frontier. Historical events were well researched and much appreciated as the fictional account of Josiah Marston's adventures are revealed in The Wolf's Head Journal.
I loved the book because it included real people and events as they occurred in the Northwest Territory in 1788. It was full of action, human conflict, and suspense. Young readers will enjoy reading this novel.
