    Gr. 6^-10. Ben MacDonald, the introverted 7-year-old whose ability to communicate with animals inspired Eckert's 1972 Newbery Honor Book, Incident at Hawk's Hill, is in danger again. Narrowly escaping an attack by vengeful neighbor George Burton, Ben drifts downstream in a canoe, eventually ending up in a Metis Indian village, where his spiritual power over wild animals earns him respect from the peace-loving tribe. Driven by misconceptions about Indian savagery, Ben's family members separately race to rescue him from the Metis village. On the way, his mother is nabbed by Burton, whose attempt to sell her into slavery brings all the characters into an exciting fight for freedom and reunion. Eckert's success as a historian adds dimension to the story as he effortlessly weaves a fascinating lesson on the Metis into his brisk adventure. Throughout, his affirming theme that "we are all human outside and brothers inside" registers effectively, thanks to the nonstereotypic characters that make this a most welcome sequel.
