Content descriptions

General Note: "American girl."
Summary, etc.: In the early 1700s, twelve-year-old Suzette, an Ojibwa-French girl, hopes that her father will win the fur-trapping contest so that he can quit being a voyageur and stay with his family year-round, but when he is accused of stealing, Suzette must use her knowledge of both French and Ojibwa ways to find the real thief.

    Gr. 4^-8. Twelve-year-old Suzette, her Ojibwe mother, and her French voyageur father live on the coast of Lake Superior near the fur trading post at Fort La Pointe. Papa has entered a fur competition and, if he wins, he will be able to spend the entire year with his family instead of wintering in Montreal with the voyageurs. Unfortunately, someone is conspiring against Papa: a bale of furs disappears from the trading post and the evidence suggests that Papa is responsible. Suzette investigates and uncovers the identity of the true thief. Ernst has created a well-plotted mystery, sprinkled judiciously with clues, and she does a commendable job of integrating setting and cultural details into the story. Less convincing is Suzette's determined, independent personality, which, although an essential part of the story, seems out of sync with the novel's early-eighteenth-century backdrop. Still, mystery fans and children who liked other books in the History Mysteries series are sure to enjoy this, and probably pick up a little history along the way. --Kay Weisman Copyright 2000 Booklist 2000
