Deskripsi

From Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper, a story of adventure and friendship between a young Native American and a colonial New England settler.

On the winter day Little Hawk is sent into the woods alone, he can take only a bow and arrows, his handcrafted tomahawk, and the amazing metal knife his father traded for with the new white settlers. If Little Hawk survives three moons by himself, he will be a man.

John Wakely is only 10 when his father dies, but he has already experienced the warmth and friendship of the nearby tribes. Yet his fellow colonists aren't as accepting of the native people. When he is apprenticed to a barrel-maker, John sees how quickly the relationships between settlers and natives are deteriorating. His friendship with Little Hawk will put both boys in grave danger.

The intertwining stories of Little Hawk and John Wakely are a fascinating tale of friendship and an eye-opening look at the history of our nation. Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper also includes a timeline and an author's note that discusses the historical context of this important and moving novel.

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

    This is a story of Little Hawk, a member of the Wampanoag tribe. The book's timeline is around the time of the Pilgrims coming to America to settle. The book is really interesting, but may be a bit slow for young readers. In the middle of the book, Little Hawk is killed and the rest of the story is told by Little Hawk as a spirit following John (a pilgrim Little Hawk met years before and who was present at Little Hawk's death). I didn't love that Little Hawk dies, I think it makes a drastic change to the feeling of the story half way through. I am also unsure of the accuracy of the depiction of the Wampanoag people. That being said, I did enjoy the story and the perspective it gave.

    heard as audio tape, so I may not have remembered things correctly.The book is separated into before & after Hawk's death. Hawk is a Native American living in what will be known as New England, on the coast. The time is just at the beginning of English immigrant contact with their tribe. The book opens as he is leaving on his fast to become a man, but there is a fair amount of flashback on his younger years--including his meeting with a young Pilgrim boy when Squanto brought some new settlers to the village so they could learn how to fish.After Hawk dies, his spirit remains and is able to communicate with this young boy, John. We follow John's life as he becomes an apprentice cooper and as he resists the dominant restrictive religion which is also the government.Some parts are a bit awkward at trying to write of emotions and lifestyles which are not innate to the author, but overall a good book with a good lesson on equality (as well as acceptance of the unknown).

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Ghost hawk follows the story of little hawk, a Native American, and a young English settler . This book is very insightful and told with a lovely tone and enjoyable pace. I loved the way the book is over such a long period of time as the reader can see the characters develop throughout there lives. I found this book took a bit to get into but once I was comfortable with the writing I found myself not being able to put it down.

    Narrated by Jim Dale. A slow start and a slow ending. Even with the great Jim Dale reading, this didn't pick up for me until Little Hawk returned to find his village decimated, and then it petered out after John moved to New Providence as a grown man. The values of tolerance and bridging differences are noted, but it all felt too "white man saves the Indian."

    When Little Hawk leaves his village for a winter in the wilderness, a rite of passage that every Wampanoag boy must face. When he returns, however, it is to find that nearly the whole village has succumbed to a fever spread from the white traders who have recently come to the region. As Little Hawk and the few survivors are incorporated into another village which has also seen losses from the fever, by chance he meets John Wakely, a boy a few years younger than himself. Little Hawk will meet John Wakely once again in his lifetime, and that meeting will change both boys' lives in profound and startling ways.This is a gripping read that deals with an historical period that may be unfamiliar to some readers. Life in Little Hawk's Wampanoag village is respectfully described, and the conflicts between the settlers over issues of church and state are shown in dramatic and interesting ways. While the book has its flaws -- for instance, I thought a character that appears toward the end of the book was too obviously a stand-in for the author -- I found it an enjoyable read overall, and would recommend it to readers who enjoy stories set in the colonial era.

    I enjoyed the story. I can see Debbie Reese's points, however, about how the story is problematic. And once you see that, it's hard to unsee it and appreciate the story for what it is.

    Where do I begin. First I saw Susan Cooper was going to be in our area for a book talk and signing, unfortunately I would not be able to attend but I did have my favorite indie bookstore Blue Willow Bookshop get a signed copy for me. When I stopped by to pick up the book the bookseller told me how wonderful Ms Cooper was and did I want to hear the spiel for selling the book. Of course, and her it is page 128 will blow you away! Now do not run out and immediately go to page 128 you will want to but it will spoil the wonderful build up to this climatic point in the story. I had to give myself a day to digest what I had read before moving on to complete the book.

    On a flight to Florida I started the book and just as we were landing I hit page 128 and I was not disappointed with this one two punch. The first half of the book is Little Hawks story with an introduction to John Wakely. John's story is told in the second part of the novel and his continued friendship with Little Hawk carries on. The novel gives background to the Pilgrims coming to the new world escaping religious intolerance only to create more fanatical religious intolerance. Slowly encroaching on the Native Americans land. We watch as John grows into a man first holding back then taking a stand on the supposed values his community holds and bearing the punishment for having a more tolerant view of religion and the Native people.

    I believe that a well read young adult will enjoy this novel and many adults could use this novel for many great discussions. This novel is a work of historical fiction some events or people did take place or exist while the majority is a work of the authors great imagination. I would highly recommend this novel.
