Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This fascinating autobiography chronicles the life of John Tanner (the Falcon) who was captured in 1789 at the age of nine by the Shawnee tribe and then sold to an Ojibwa family with whom he spent the first half of his adult life ranging the north woods of Minnesota, Michigan, and Ontario. Tanner attempted to return to white society but ultimately decided his home was with the Ojibwa.

"An intensely personal and emotional tale, [Tanner's] life was a paradigmatic quest to belong, a restless search for peace and place."-- Louise Erdrich, from her Introduction
