Talk about Light in the Forest - Teacher Guide by Novel Units

The first time I read this, as a school assignment, more than 50 years ago, I accepted it as little more than a nice story.

Yes, this is a work of fiction but the fiction exists only in terms of the specific dates, names and places. Everything, which occurs, in this book, really happened, commonly, in our country’s 17th through 19th century histories.

Unfortunately, most of our public grammar schools, even most of our public high schools, still teach history as little more than a series of unrelated, unconnected dates, places and names, to be committed to memory. No connections are made, to the circumstances, causes or conditions, which surrounded the people and places or generated the actions. It’s not until one gets into undergrad school that one has evan a small chance of understanding history, in the related-circumstances or bigger picture senses.

This book is an excellent introduction, for youngsters, to understand how and why some things occurred, not just that they happened in an apparent vacuum.

While our Native American tribes had absolutely no comprehension of the concepts of DNA, RNA or heredity, they knew, from the first-hand results of their continuous inbreeding, that they needed diversity, from outside their limited circle, to keep their groups functional and competitive, with the other tribes. Theft/adoption, of women of child-bearing ages and children, from other tribes or societal groups, was their way of exercising their sole ability to cope with those diversity needs.

This novel explains these things, at a level compatible with tweens and early teens, without making it seem like they’re receiving a history lesson.
Conrad Richter spins a powerful tale in a short time. His writing style reminds me of Richard Connell ("The Most Dangerous Game") in that he can deliver so much with so few words.

This is as much about the collision of vastly different cultures as it is about a boy caught between them. John Butler, the son of a prominent Pennsylvania frontier family was kidnapped as a child by Delaware Indians during a massacre; Indians who were seeing their homeland usurped by white settlers and were making a last stand against them.

The Indians brought up the boy as an Indian, giving him the name True Son; his own acceptance of the new way of life began to grow and deepen within him, so that when he was brought back to his own family eleven years later, he had formed distinct opinions of his own against the whites; in his own mind, he was not White, but Indian. He loved and appreciated all things Indian; the forests, the rivers, the animals and birds of the woods; the religion of the Great Spirit. Richter's descriptive passages delve deep into the psyche of a youth torn by opposing forces between two worlds, while one single world is the one he has accepted as his. As his birth family struggles to reclaim him, it drives all of them against each other, in a fierce battle of wills that none of them will truly triumph over when all is said and done.

Another excellent novel with a similar, more modern theme regarding a childhood friendship between two boys,one white,one red,until adulthood intervenes,is "Crazy Weather" by Charles McNichols.

Another Conrad Richter tale I highly recommend is "Sea of Grass" which is also about the frontier, (New Mexico) but with an entirely different context. "Sea of Grass" and "The Light in the Forest" are both slim volumes, but with a lot in between the pages.
Conrad Richter paints a masterpiece with mere words. This is a most beautiful story. I want to read everything he has written. I'm starting with The Trees and am not disappointed. He creates characters and scenes that live and breathe.
Perhaps somewhat dated in terms of its handling... but much has happened which has changed the way we think since the 60s... This book was well suited for me as a budding adolescent, and it still touches me in my late 60s... I believe that I described the book as 'Provocative' when I was 12 years old.
I liked this book because it resists the temptation to Idealize the American Indian. The main character was taken as a youth by indians from his family then forced to return years later. He does not get along well with his real family He does not admire or understand his father who as a pale sickly older man lives his life indoors working as an accountant. He does not like living indoors. The only one he bonds with is his much younger brother. He runs away from home back to his indian family but on a raid with them he is horrified when they kill the children of the settlers they attack. He is left between two worlds unable to adapt to civilized life and unable to live with the murderers he finds himself among.
Great book, bought it since it was one of my favorites when I was young. Arrived in excellent condition.
The book is short but it goes through a whirlwind of emotions.

True Son is taken from white settlers as a young child and then raised by a his Native American parents. He is then taken back to his white family and he is not willing to go back to those ways. His despair is tangible but then, with what follows (don't want to give spoilers) he's torn between the two worlds.

Its a great read but it seems a little short and abrupt at times.
Beautifully written, A Light In the Forest is the tale of a young boy torn between worlds, fiercely prejudiced against each other. True Son, a fifteen year old white boy was taken in by a Native American tribe when he was only four years old, and sense then his hate for the white people has grown stronger and stronger. But now that he is forced to return to his original family, he learns that his " Delaware " people are just as flawed as any culture or civilization. This book is both a coming of age story as well as a tale that blurs the lines between right and wrong. A surprising page turner, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
