Author:  Shelley Pearsall

From the Author:  
"The year is 1812. A white trapper is murdered. And a young Chippewa stands accused.

Captured and shackled in leg irons and chains, Indian John is imprisoned in a settler's loft to await his trial. All the while, thirteen-year-old Rebecca Carver sleeps and cooks and cleans below, terrified by the captive Indian in her own home.

As the trial approaches, the Chippewa man struggles to make sense of the white man's court. In a world of crude frontier justice, where evidence is often overlooked in favor of vengeance, his young lawyer faces the wrath of the settlers who are hungry to see the Indian hanged for murder. And Rebecca must decide for herself what--and who--is right. At stake is a life.

Told in the alternating voices of Indian John and Rebecca Carver, Crooked River offers a probing look at prejudice, early American justice, and the true meaning of courage. An author's note and bibliography provide additional historical details for readers."
