Escape to the Evergladesby Edwina Raffa
Synopses & Reviews
Running Boy of the Snake Clan of the Seminoles has turned fourteen and has received his adult name, Will Cypress, at the annual Green Corn Dance. In the eyes of his tribe Will is now a man, and he is eager to prove his courage as a warrior against the U.S. Army in the Second Seminole War.
Will sets out to join Osceolas band of warriors who are fighting to remain in Florida. He never loses his will to overcome, even when the whites break their truce and capture the Seminoles and imprison them in St. Augustine. Will faces the daunting challenge of honoring his mixed heritage while desperately struggling to hold on to his dream.
