Hatchet

He crushed the berries against the roof of his mouth with his tongue and drank
the sweet juice as it ran down his throat. A flash of metal caught his eye and he
saw his hatchet in the sand where he had thrown it at the porcupine in the dark.

Can’t fight … Axelle, a Belgian woman who takes pity, nurses Michel to health. But she has her own problems. A German war hero wants her womanly virtue. An unhinged neighbor wants her land. And Axe?

A Better Kind of Hatchet

Law, Trade, and Diplomacy in the Cherokee Nation During the Early Years of
European Contact John Phillip Reid. - A A Better Kind of Hatchet A Better Kind of
Hatchet.

Author: John Phillip Reid

Publisher: Penn State University Press

ISBN:

Category: Cherokee Indians

Page: 249

View: 680

The first thorough examination of the impact of European culture on an American Indian nation, this book builds on the author's pioneering work, A Law of Blood: The Primitive Law of the Cherokee Nation. The emphasis of the present book is on trade and the laws of trade, but it also shows how trade affected diplomacy--especially during the Yamasee War (1715-16), when Cherokee intervention on the side of the English settlers was vital to the survival of South Carolina. The Cherokees (and the southern Indians in general) had laws and customs governing trade, barter, sales, contracts, and debts; thus they did not have to learn from the Europeans about these activities and the legal principles governing them. Indeed, contrary to general belief, Cherokee legal institutions were resistant to change and, where British and Cherokee law came into conflict, it was the former that usually had to yield. In the Yamasee War there was no formal alliance between the Cherokees and the English against the Creeks; most Cherokees simply joined the side with which their trade relations seemed more valuable than Indian solidarity. The geopolitical, commercial, historical, and anthropological importance of the Cherokees is made clear by Professor Reid. They held the mountains on the marchland of three empires: British, Spanish, French. Indian trade, moreover, was the first successful commercial enterprise of the Carolina settlers. Yet by 1725 all recognized that South Carolina could survive without Cherokee deerskins, whereas the Cherokees could not survive without Carolina-supplied ammunition and hardware. Although the Cherokees did not need to be taught the laws of trade, they were forced to learn about the profound changes in their institutions inexorably caused by European technology.

Celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of the Newbery Honor–winning survival novel Hatchet with a pocket-sized edition perfect for travelers to take along on their own adventures. This special anniversary edition includes a new introduction and commentary by author Gary Paulsen, pen-and-ink illustrations by Drew Willis, and a water resistant cover. Hatchet has also been nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read. Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson, haunted by his secret knowledge of his mother’s infidelity, is traveling by single-engine plane to visit his father for the first time since the divorce. When the plane crashes, killing the pilot, the sole survivor is Brian. He is alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother had given him as a present. At first consumed by despair and self-pity, Brian slowly learns survival skills—how to make a shelter for himself, how to hunt and fish and forage for food, how to make a fire—and even finds the courage to start over from scratch when a tornado ravages his campsite. When Brian is finally rescued after fifty-four days in the wild, he emerges from his ordeal with new patience and maturity, and a greater understanding of himself and his parents.
