by | Read by Pamela Fernie

Children Ages 10+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

Pamela Fernie's gentle voice carries the listener into the nineteenth-century wilderness with young Michael Gentle Deer, who travels from his war-torn home on the Detroit River to Mackinaw Island in search of his Shawnee family. With only a few vocal characterizations, Fernie shows subtleties of emotion, suspense, concern, and excitement. Her narration enhances the strong plot, rich descriptive language, and vivid characterization that form the texture of this multilayered novel. Spare but well-chosen sound effects reinforce story elements, and musical passages smooth transitions between chapters. This is the last in a trilogy of historical novels for young adults.
