Cecile is on her way home with a loaf of bread in her hands when she first sees Lesharo. His is a pani, the indian slave of a cruel master who brands and taunts him before the eyes of the outraged Cecile, who was brought up to believe that slavery is wrong. Not long after she returns to the spot, buys Lesharo, and grants him his freedom, but the Pawnee indian stays by her side to protect her as she journeys to Detroit with her father.

I saw this book in a small bookstore when I was vacationing in Maine and decided to buy it even though I had never seen it before- the chances of finding it in Borders seemed slim. I read it not long after I returned home and decided it was some of the best historical fiction I had read in years. I ended up doing my what-I-read-over-the-summer book report on this book, but did not read it again until now.

While admittedly on the longer side of average, this book does not present much of a challange for a student in late elementary school and can be enjoyed up through adulthood.
