Return to Hawk's Hill ebook

by Allan W. Eckert


Eckert wrote several books of natural history. Return to Hawk's Hill; 1998, Little Brown & Company, ISBN 0-316-21593-7, (paperback: ISBN 0-316-00689-0).

Eckert wrote several books of natural history. In addition, he wrote more than 225 episodes of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, for which he received an Emmy Award. His numerous historical novels were popular, including several that were part of his series "The Winning of America".

While Return to Hawk's Hill doesn't have quite the same animal-lover appeal, it has more excitement of action and thus would probably be easier for young people, especially reluctant readers, to manage on their own. We did both as family read alouds and enjoyed the sequel as well. Some have objected to the somewhat long-winded "preachiness" of Louis Riel in explaining how badly the Native Americans were treated by the settlers and the Canadian government

Ships from and sold by JSFBOOKS. Allan Eckert writes with such truth that it can be startling. While I liked this book, I was reared in a time and place where hunting was a way of life and a means of life. I found it startling to see the kills and hear the men talk about the hunt as if the animals had no rights.

Incident At Hawks Hill was ALWAYS a favorite of mine and of the many elementary classrooms with whom I shared it. Allan Eckert has not changed and his talents have not diminished.. I expected a lot - and I was delivered a lot. The book did not disappoint.

This sequel to Incident at Hawk's Hill may be better in some ways than the first. There was more character development of the rest of the family. Although it is considered a Youth book, it is rewarding to be read by an adult.

This is a sequel to Eckert's Newbery Honor winning Incident at Hawk's Hill in which six-year-old Ben MacDonald spends a couple of months lost on the Canadian prairie and is befriended by a female badger which is adopted as a pet by the MacDonald but is shot by their neighbor, the vicious trapper George Burton who is forced to leave the community. Following the death of the badger, about a year later Burton returns and apparently intends to seek revenge against the MacDonalds. While riding home from school with his brother and two sisters, Ben, now seven, gets off the wagon to walk the rest of the way. Later, he sees Burton chasing the wagon, so to escape he runs to the river, gets in his father's rowboat, and pushes out. Soon he discovers that the oars have been removed, and caught by the current he floats downstream through dangerous rapids to Lake Winnipeg.
There Ben is rescued by a Metis boy named Little Buffalo and taken to safety in one of the Metis villages along the shores of the lake. Their leader, Louis Riel, sends a couple of his warriors to Hawk's Hill to let the MacDonalds know that Ben is safe and will be returned. Meanwhile, Will and John MacDonald set out to try and find Ben. They locate the rowboat in some debris along the lakeshore, but are unsure whether he may have drowned or not. When they do not return on time, Esther MacDonald, convinced that Ben must be alive and with the Metis, takes the girls to stay with a neighbor and sets off for the Indian villages. Along the way, she is captured by George Burton who plans to sell her to the Metis as a slave. Will and John finally return home and seeing Esther's note, go off after her. Therefore, when the Indian warriors arrive at Hawk's Hill, they find no one to whom they can deliver Riel's message. Do Will and John catch up with Burton and Esther in time? How will the Metis react to Burton's offer of a slave? And what will happen to Ben?
We enjoyed Incident at Hawk's Hill. While Return to Hawk's Hill doesn't have quite the same animal-lover appeal, it has more excitement of action and thus would probably be easier for young people, especially reluctant readers, to manage on their own. We did both as family read alouds and enjoyed the sequel as well. Some have objected to the somewhat long-winded "preachiness" of Louis Riel in explaining how badly the Native Americans were treated by the settlers and the Canadian government. While I find books that overemphasize these kinds of things to be annoying, it is true that Indians in both the United States and in Canada did not always receive a fair shake. It is also true that there have been some who sought to do right towards the Indians, and this book does a good job in maintaining balance on the subject. There are some references to tobacco use. The "d" word is used a couple of times by Burton, and the name of God is found a few times as an interjection, but I found Esther MacDonald's suggestion at the end, "I think we should take a moment to thank God, silently, each of us in his own way," to be satisfactory.

I chose to read this book.... I was looking for a novel that seemed interesting. I also wanted to read a book with a different genre from most of the other books I've read...
The main character in this story is a young boy named Ben Mac Donald. Ben Mac Donald has two older sisters,... . and one older brother. Ben is the youngest of the four and also the quietest. He seems to be on the reserved side and it seems like he enjoys being home alone, and keeping to himself. Ben is also fascinated with nature, and loves to go and frolic with the wildlife on the prairie. At one point in the story, Ben even stays with a mother badger in her den...
I really enjoyed this book and I found it very interesting. I love the adventures that he goes on. Sometimes the adventures he goes on are to save the lives of others, other times it's to get away with his own. I give this book a score of 4+/5-; because the book just pulled me in I couldn't put it down. I really enjoy adventures both in books and in real life, and this book had plenty of adventures to keep me reading. I hope to read the next volume of this book series titled Incident at Hawk's Hill and experience more heart racing adventures that Ben Mac Donald goes on. Hopefully, none too dangerous though.
Return to Hawk's Hill by Alan W. Eckert is one of my favorite books. I think this book can be read or listened to by all ages. The book tells the story through the eyes of the family, Ben and the villagers. While reading the book, you will find yourself comparing what they did in a certain situation with what you would have done. The main theme is the conflict of what people think of others when they act, talk and do things you find are strange.
The story begins with Ben's brother and sisters going home and thinking of what had happened before (read Incident at Hawk 's Hill to understand) when George Burton shows up. Ben feeling like an animal caught runs..., finds a boat..., is found by an Indian boy and brought back to the Indian boy's village, fills fear, lonely and then love. Return to Hawk's Hill is a book you can't stop reading until it's done.
