The Last Algonquin Summary

The Last Algonquin is an interesting book on many levels and for several reasons. First, it is a fascinating story in which a twelve-year-old boy is befriended by an elderly Indian living alone on an island, who teaches him Indian lore and skills, and tells him of the adventures he had when he was a young man. The Last Algonquin is also an interesting book because, without being preachy or overly didactic, it opens up to the reader a vision of history that is lively and relevant, not dry or boring. It shows the reader, not just tells the reader, how each of us is indeed an integral part of an continuing story called history. As such, it is a book that can spark in the reader the same deep and abiding interest in history that Two Trees inspired in the Kazimiroffs.
