Full Description

"Without a word, Father pulled me up behind him in to the saddle."But I saw him in my mind, anyway. I kept my face buried in his back so I wouldn't have to view Louie Sam once again. I will see him there forever.

The year is 1884, and 15-year-old George Gillies lives in the Washington Territory, near the border with British Columbia. When George and his siblings discover the murdered body of a local white man, suspicion immediately falls on a young Indian named Louie Sam. George and his best friend, Pete, follow a lynch mob north into Canada, exactly exactly where the terrified boy is seized and hung. In this newly settled land, white immigrants have an uneasy connection with all the Native Indians.

But even ahead of the deed is done, George begins to have doubts. But standing up for justice has devastating consequences for George and his family. Were the mob leaders motivated by justice, or had been they hiding their quite own guilt? As George uncovers the truth--implicating Pete's father and other prominent locals--tensions inside the town rise, and he must face his own part in the tragedy. Louie Sam was a boy, only 14--could he really be a vicious murderer?
