Publisher Description:
The night of the full moon is approaching and Libby Mitchell cannot wait Nothing will stop her from visiting her best friend, Fawn, at the nearby Indian camp and attending a special ceremony there. When soldiers rush in and order everyone at the camp to move off the land immediately-- they mistake Libby for a member of the tribe As each day passes, Libby wonders if she will ever see her family again.

Contributor Bio(s): Gloria and her husband Joseph moved from Detroit to the woods of northern Michigan several years ago.  Many of Gloria's books take place during the summer -- because she does a lot of her writing during the northern Michigan blizzards!  Gloria has been telling stories for as long as she can remember.  Before she could read or write, she used to dictate stories to her baby-sitter, who would type them out.  Being an only child, many of Gloria's stories were about having a brother or sister.   Gloria would like to have written Little Women, because Jo March was one of her role models growing up!   Gloria once had a set of five wtching guinea pigs, all named after Detroit Tiger baseball players!

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Fall)
In [cf2]Night[cf1], young pioneer Libby is mistakenly included in the U.S. government's deportation of the Potowatomi Indians; in [cf2]Shadow[cf1], Libby and her family move to the remote wilderness of northern Michigan. These sequels to [cf2]Next Spring an Oriole[cf1] are lively and entertaining historical fiction. Both books include expressive black-and-white drawings. [Review covers these Stepping Stone History titles: [cf2]Night of the Full Moon[cf1] and [cf2]Shadow of the Wolf[cf1].]",,"Younger Fiction",,,,,,,,,,,69750,,,, Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
