Beau Lightfoot was born into a world of isolation and poverty in Northern Michigan in the mid-1950s, the son of an Odawa Indian woman and a white father. When he turns 11, the spirit of Pontiac, the great Odawa War Chief, appears to Beau and becomes his guide and advisor, as he navigates high school and wins a football scholarship to the University of Michigan. Unprepared for the 1960s world of big-time football, Vietnam War protests, drugs and sex, but guided by the advice and Native American philosophy of a long-dead War Chief, Beau copes with betrayal and friendship, while trying to win the heart of a young woman far above his social class.--Publisher.
