The Light in the Forest
by Conrad Richter
The Light in the Forest is the classic tale by Conrad Richter. This is one of my boys’ favorite books. Based on a true story, it marvelously depicts the misunderstandings between the Indians and the white man. True Son, a white child, had been kidnapped and adopted by the Lenni Lenape Indians. Now, when it is time to return to his biological parents, he cannot shed his Indian upbringing. A tragic story depicting the unhealable breach between the people groups. An excellent addition to any study of American history or PA state history.
