The woods of southern Michigan are getting corwded, so Libby Mitchell and her family load up their covered wagon and move north. They settle on the shores of Lake Michigan--right next to the Indian camp where Libby's friend Fawn lives! But Libby and Fawn soon find out that greedy men are trying to cheat the Indians out of their land. Now the girls must think of a way to stop them--before the people and animals who call the forest their home lose it forever. This poignant, beautifully-told story concludes Gloria Whelan's American history trilogy.
