About the Book: Odie O’Banion remembers 1932 when he was 12. He and his brother, Albert, were the only white students at Lincoln Indian Training School. Odie and Albert are orphans and at the mercy of Mrs. Brickman (who students call “The Black Witch”) After a protector at the school dies tragically the two take off down river with two other “vagabonds.” The story is a remarkable search for home and will warm your heart.
