The name has haunted my sleep and made my awake hours uneasy for as long as I can remember. Other children whisper that he is part man and part animal -- wild and blood-thirsty. But I know Weasel is real: a man, an Indian fighter the government sent to drive off the Indians -- to "remove them." Weasel has his own ideas about removal...

But I can't...Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 10/1/1991Pages: 128Reading Level: Age 8 and Up
