Time of the Eagle

When smallpox strikes her family, thirteen-year-old Autumn Dawn flees into the forest with her little bother, Coyote Boy. Together, the two native youngsters must draw on their survival skills, and learn to tell friend from foe, as they travel in search of a safe haven.

Set in the late 1700’s, when deadly diseases like smallpox were sweeping through native communities, this is the story of one girl’s heroism and strong spirit.

Time of the Eagle is not only an exciting adventure story, but can be used by educators when studying the history of the Lake Superior region and the fur trade. Through interviews with Ojibwe people as well as extensive primary source research, I studied the history of Native Americans in Wisconsin for over ten years. I’m very proud that the Council for Indian Education gave Time of the Eagle their seal of approval.
