On Daniel Tucker's 13th birthday, a hawk flies over his family's
farm. Does the hawk announce a visitor, or warn of imminent danger?
Daniel's mother and sister listen for the hawk's message, while
something urgent stirs inside Daniel. He is struggling to find his
own path between the heritage of his Pequot mother and the customs
of his English father.
Meanwhile, a new family has moved into the crumbling cabin next
door. Hiram Coombs can't believe his parents have returned to
Vermont now that the Revolutionary War is over. Don't they remember
the terror of the raid, when Indians and Redcoats burned the
family's previous farm and kidnapped Hiram's uncle?
When Hiram encounters Daniel at the trout stream that separates the
two farms, he sees only a "dirty Injun," while Daniel regards Hiram
as "buffle-brained." The arrival of two more unexpected visitors
heightens the tensions between the boys and threatens to rekindle
the smoldering embers of the war.
