Excellent, Intermediate, Young Adult, Native Americans, War of 1812, Indiana Territory, Friendship
Awikwa and James are twelve-year-old boys that spend their days hunting, fishing, and exploring in the nearby forests. Their lives are suddenly changed and their friendship is at risk when the War of 1812 makes it way to their small and remote Indiana Territory. They begin to question their loyalty when the Native American and British allies prepare to meet in Fort Wayne to battle the American soldiers. However, as people become divided, these two boys keep alive a deep friendship that war itself cannot tear apart.
