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.
