This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and every once in a while they even write home to say what they've been doing.

It's 1954. 11-year-old Sonny lives in a mill town in northern New York state, near the Vermont border. His father works at the paper mill and doesn't approve of "Uncle Louis", an old family friend of Sonny's mother who visits often and teaches Sonny how to feel at home in the woods. There are so many things Sonny's parents won't talk to him about..but over the course of this story he manages to learn quite a lot about himself and his family's past.

Some of the characters take a trip to Vermont during the story, and as it turns out, past events in Vermont are very significant to Sonny's family, so I'd count this book as my 2016 Vermont read for NancyNova's 2015-16 States Challenge if I didn't already have one...

Mom read this. Next it might be offered to someone who I believe has Abenaki roots of her own. The history told in this story isn't pleasant, but I think it's important to know about.

Please take a moment to make a journal entry and let the book's previous readers know that it's safe with you.

How and where did you find the book? What did you think of it? What are you going to do with it next?

It's now your book, for you to do with as you please: keep it, pass it to a friend, or maybe even leave it where someone else can find it!

If you've ever wondered where your books go after they leave your hands, join BookCrossing and you may find out: you'll be able to follow the further adventures of your books as new readers make journal entries - sometimes from surprisingly far-flung locations.

(Think of it like Where's George for books: a little like geocaching or a treasure hunt - you can follow a registered book's journey every time someone makes a new entry. Some BookCrossers even leave books *in* geocaches!)
