I rate this 2 stars,because i did not like that it wasn't from all perspectives .But i did like how he has to get his own supplies ans food.plus It was when America was settling in.
The main two characters are Ateen and Matt. i'll start with Ateen,he is a native in the area where Matt and his family had settled. Matt is the person that has moved in Ateens land and tries to fit in with the Indians after they saved them.
The setting is some where in America . Matt has a small cabin in a clearing by a river where he catches fish. Ateen has a village and his grandfather is the is the chief.
The problem is that Ateen doesn't like Matt. Because he does not want to learn to read or write from white man. And acts like he is getting forced by his grandfather.
The solution is that though they don't like each other they learn to get along. By fishing and both showing their way of things. at the end Ateen asked Matt to come with the Indians.
At the end his family comes back.Then they exchange their experiences. Then they eat dinner and he tells them about Ateen.
