Can a troubled boy and an earthbound spirit together find freedom?
-It's not a punishment.- His mother looked into Ethan's face, her eyes pleading for understanding. -Four Horses is a wonderful man. Three months with your grandfather will give you time to think things through.-
Ethan turned back to his father. -B-b-but I don't even know your father. You said he's a superstitious old fool.-
Mr. Hunter ignored Ethan's words. -You are leaving on Tuesday.- He picked up his fork, signaling the end of the discussion...
After getting into trouble with the law, fourteen-year-old Ethan Hunter is sent to live with his Native American grandfather. In the small, remote village of Long Pond, he learns a new way of life, adopts a new set of values, and finds that to free himself from his past, he must free another.
