    Elizabeth George Speare was born on November 21, 1908, in Melrose, Massachusetts. She attended Smith College and received bachelor's and graduate degrees from Boston University. Though she always wanted to be a writer, she didn't begin her career until after she had raised her family. Among her many wonderful works are two Newbery winning novels, The Witch of Blackbird Pond and The Bronze Bow, and the Newbery Honor book The Sign of the Beaver. In 1989 she was presented the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for her substantial and enduring contribution to children's literature. Elizabeth George Speare died in 1994.

    Although he faces responsibility bravely, thirteen-year-old Matt is more than a little apprehensive when his father leaves him alone to guard their new cabin in the wilderness. When a renegade white stranger steals his gun, Matt realizes he has no way to shoot game or to protect himself. When Matt meets Attean, a boy in the Beaver clan, he begins to better understand their way of life and their growing problem in adapting to the white man and the changing frontier.

    Elizabeth George Speare’s Newbery Honor-winning survival story is filled with wonderful detail about living in the wilderness and the relationships that formed between settlers and natives in the 1700s. Now with an introduction by Joseph Bruchac.
