Broken Trail
by Jean Baxter




Overview -
Broken Trail is the story of a thirteen-year-old white boy, the son of United Empire Loyalists, who has been captured and adopted by the Oneida people. Striving to find his vision oki that will guide him in his quest to become a warrior, Broken Trail disavows his white heritage. He now considers himself to be Oneida. But everything changes when Broken Trail, alone in the woods on his vision quest, is mistakenly shot by a redcoat soldier. He is taken to the soldier's camp and then sent south on a mission to deliver a message to Major Patrick Ferguson that could save many lives. Narrowly escaping being slaughtered in the Battle of Kings Mountain, Broken Trail finds his long-lost older brother, who had been fighting for the British and has been captured by the rebels. Seeing his brother seriously wounded, Broken Trail knows he must try to rescue him, but a choice must be made: do his loyalties lie with his brother, or with the First Nations who offer him the chance to become a warrior? And with his knowledge of both ways of life, can Broken Trail find a way forward that will benefit both peoples? A sequel to the bestselling The Way Lies North, Broken Trail is an absorbing and swift-paced story that brings to vivid reality one of the most exciting eras in North America's past.
