About this title

Synopsis:

Follow the journey of a pocket-sized stone owl, carved by a Lenape Indian boy in 1609, through four centuries as it travels along the Hudson River in New York State. In each exciting chapter, the stone owl is discovered by a new owner, a boy or girl to whom the owl brings good luck or courage in the thrilling adventures that unfold. The owl on its journey encounters pirates and settlers, lions and elephants, steamboats and locomotives, blizzards and mine cave-ins, presidents, pilots and heroes, runaway slaves and new immigrants from all parts of the world. The stories that take place in these 800 square miles tell the real history of America, through the eyes of the young people who lived here over the centuries.
