Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Award-winning author Mary Pope Osborne's first middle-grade novel is a gripping girl survival story reminiscent of such classics as *Island of the Blue Dolphins* and *Julie of the Wolves*.

LOVE AND LOYALTY PUT TO THE TEST

Adaline is a fiery child--an irrepressible combination of her white explorer father Kit Carson and her Arapaho mother. When Ma dies and Pa sets off on an expedition out West, Adaline finds herself living in St. Louis with racist white relatives who call her a savage and work her like a slave.

When Adaline realizes she may have been abandoned, she decides to find her own way back to her mother's people, where she is sure her father will find her. With the company of a stray dog, Adaline sets out on a journey that will either save her life--or end it...

Adaline wants to find her mother's people, and, with a stray dog as her companion, sets off on a journey that will either save her life or end it.

Richard Carson, May 4, 2007 (view all comments by Richard Carson)
I have to tell you that the premise of this book is both historically incorrect and personally offensive. As a descendant of Kit Carson and Waanibe (his Arapahoe wife), I can tell you there is nothing in the history books saying that he abandoned his daughter to white racists. In fact, all of the two dozen books in print say just the opposite. He he went on an expedition, he left his daughter in the care of good friend Charles Bent at Bent's fort. Bent had a daughter of the same age that was also part native american.
