Sign Of The Beaver
The Sign of the Beaver is a children's historical novel by American author Elizabeth George Speare, which has won numerous literary awards.
The idea for this book came from a factual story that Elizabeth George Speare discovered in Milo, Maine about a young boy who was left alone for a summer in the wilderness and was befriended by a Native American, named Attean, and his grandfather. The novel has been adapted into a television film titled Keeping the Promise. (Wikipedia)
