The Moccasin Trail by Eloise Jarvis McGraw is about a teenage boy named Jim. He was taken by Crow Indians and grew up as one after being attacked by a bear at the age of nine. Jim is white and was attacked while on a hunting trip with his uncle. Unfortunately, he gradually forgets that he is British. So when a letter comes to him from his real family, he leaves the Indians and goes home.
The question is will he survive the wilderness and get to his family in time? And if he does, will his family accept him?
