Bregy's versatility and sensitivity combine to deliver the tale of True Son, who learns at age 15 that he is actually John Butler. Raised by the Lenape Indians since his capture at age 4, he now must be returned to his white family under the terms of the latest treaty. The confused adolescent, his Native American friends and his estranged white family are each presented with clarity and precision. While there are no special effects, there is never confusion regarding action and emotion. This is an excellent choice for families or classrooms, where adults can work with children to discuss the tragic effects of prejudice.
