The Red Sash

by Jean E. Pendziwol

Illustrated by Nicolas Debon

A young Native American boy is at the heart of this charming adventure that takes place nearly 200 years ago. The story centers around the busy fur trading post of Fort William on Lake Superior. In the winter, the boy's father guides voyagers into the northwest to trade furs. Those same voyagers paddle back to Fort William with their packs of furs, while another group comes in from Montreal bringing supplies. It’s a time of feasting, dancing, and trading stories around the campfire.

Pendziwol’s engaging text combines with Debon’s vivid and historically accurate illustrations to give an authentic picture of life at a fur trading post in the early 1800s.
