Two boys (Anikwa, a member of the Miami tribe, and James, a trader’s son) are friends living near the border of the American and British territories. On the eve of the War of 1812 their worlds are about to clash—and things will never be the same.

Still a fan of Frost. I appreciate how she consciously formats the poetry so the forms share a story as well. Gifted story teller in verse.
