"Shawnee lance" written by Leroy Allen. Published by Delacorte Press, first printing, 1970.
"Daniel, 14 has been brought up tough and free as men had to be when they were carving out a home and a way of life in the Ohio Valley wilderness. Then, during a sudden Shawnee raid he is taken captive, to be adopted into the tribe-or killed."
"Among the Shawnee he suffers severe penalties for being white. Drawing on enormous emotional and physical strength, Daniel pits himself against the hatred, jealousy, and ridicule of Buffalo Skull, son of a Shawnee Daniel killed; of Sparrow, whose twisted mind drives her to treachery and evil; of Running Fox, whose uncontrolled hatred and mistrust of all white men makes him dangerously unpredictable; and of his young Indian "brother," Black Eagle, whose place in his father's affections seems threatened by the "Yengee" intruder."
In the short period of one moon, Daniel is forced to pass horrendous tests of skill, strength , logic, and bravery in return for his life. He secretly plots his escape to freedom among white men, but when the time comes and his chance is there, Daniel finds he has new loyalties, even to the people who still mistrust him."
