Publisher's Summary

An orphan reflects on the lessons he was taught by the wise old man who raised him in this lyrical novel that sounds like poetry from three-time Newbery Honor-winning author Gary Paulsen.

Deep in the woods, in a rustic cabin, lives an old man and the boy he's raised as his own. This sage old man has taught the boy the power of nature and how to live in it and, more importantly, to respect it. In Fishbone's Song, this boy reminisces about the magic of the man who raised him and the tales that he used to tell - all true, but different each time.

shadow Memories of Fishbone

Enjoyed thinking through natural memories of outdoor learning. This is not a book of action, but one of relationships to people, experiences, and things in nature.
