About the Book
At age thirteen, Broken Trail is ready to become a warrior. Captured and adopted by the Oneida people in the midst of the war between the British and Americans when he was a child, he has refused his white name, and avoids speaking English. But everything changes when he's mistakenly shot by a redcoat soldier.
From the Publisher
Broken Trail is the story a thirteen-year-old white boy, the son of United Empire Loyalists, who has been captured and adopted by the Oneida people. Striving to find his vision oki that will guide him in his quest to become a warrior, Broken Trail disavows his white heritage - he considers himself Oneida.
