Life in the Wilderness | Posted March 25, 2009
Kendra Marty is just a little girl when both her parents die in a terrible accident. Sheís all alone and is an orphan until her grandfather George comes along. George is a tough old bird, and he lives out in the wilderness away from civilization. But when he hears about the sudden death of his daughter and son-in-law, he makes his way down into town and decides that he must find his granddaughter a good home with a good family. He canít seem to find the right family for Kendra that would suit her, so he makes the decision to adopt her himself.

George canít take care of little Kendra all the time so he asks his old friend Nonie to help watch Kendra for him. Whenever George isnít around, Nonie comes and takes care of Kendra and teaches her many things about Indian myths and stories. Kendra becomes confused about all that Nonie and other people have told her about life and religion. Kendra has a deep longing within her heart to find something to answer all her burning questions about life. She wants to find the truth...

I really like this book and enjoyed following Kendra from when she was a little girl to adulthood. The characters came to life in this book, and I especially liked Kendra and was happy when she found the truth!
