The White Oneida

Jean Rae Baxter d

In her fourth historical novel dealing with British North America and the American Revolution, Jean Rae Baxter focuses on Broken Trail, a young boy who was born white but captured and adopted by the Oneida people. The great Mohawk leader Thayendanegea — known to Euro-Canadians as Joseph Brant — has chosen Broken Trail to assist him in the daunting task of uniting all the tribes and nations with the goal of establishing a country of their own. In preparation, Broken Trail must attend a Christian boarding school for native youth, where he soon finds that he has to gain

the trust of young men from many different tribes whose ancient enmities lie barely concealed beneath the surface. With the help of Yellowbird, the only woman student, he discovers that the school — racist in the extreme

  • is a place of secrets where appearances can be deceiving and loyalty is

sometimes proven in unexpected ways. As a first step, Brant sends Broken

Trail on a long journey to meet with Tecumseh, the young Shawnee leader, to begin the work of union. In this tale of intrigue and adventure, Baxter

once again demonstrates her ability to convert the past into living history.
