I LOVED this book! My only regret is that it wasn't written during the time my own dear Dad was alive. Born in 1910, he grew up in the area that is described and spent many a day in those same woods. He also found arrowheads there! Who knows? Maybe Dad and Joe Two Trees may have crossed paths so long ago! I truly look forward to this movie and pray that they keep faithful to the story!!!

Every once in a while a great book comes along that would make a movie masterpiece, a classic. This book has the potential to be a true masterpiece for all time. it is the definitve story of the American Indian and should not be forgotten.

I loved it! The ending brought me to tears. I'm so glad that I chose this book for my history report. Besides just gaining knowledge from this book, I also gained a reviving love for tales of real Indians and there struggles. It's an awesome book, very firm and emotional gripping.

Can't wait for the movie. Love the book!
But like the Last of the Mohicans, the title perpetuates that these native americans (Algonquins) are all gone, and they are not.

I first read this book 20 years ago,and loved it. I have bought numerous copies and end up giving each away each time I buy one. People fall in love with it, and reread it, as I have. I just cannot believe it will finally be a movie, at long last. Hopefully then, all of America will know the story of Joe Two Trees. His story needs to be known.

This book was indeed a page turner!  I am from the Bronx, near the Pelham Bay area and this story brought out every emotion possible from, sadness, happiness, love, hate, anger and best of all being proud of who you are no matter what!  So glad to read about history so close to home.

I really love this book and am glad to have come across it. It is very special to me because I live in the Pelham Bay section of The Bronx and have walked or rode my bike on the trails where Two Trees lived.

My father recommended I read this book.  I loved it so much I gave it to my father-in-law and now my book club.  One of my friends wants to take a kayaking trip out to twin island.  I think it sounds like a fantastic idea.

A very moving story and sure to become a must read classic. This is a book that every parent should add to their teenagers list of required reading.

I am a "book" and "film" person, and feel this book must be filmed.   The book transports you into the heart and mind of "Joe", and you become so entwined it is difficult to leave at the book's ending.   The very depth of the Algonquin soul is there for you to partake of, and become a stronger and better person.
I'd better stop..... DO READ "The Last Algonquin"

This is a TRUE STORY of a Native American and his struggle with the white man, and thanks to a lone BOY SCOUT he will live on through his story.
CinemaShares.com is extremely excited about this movie, and its potential for transforming the Heart.
