Encounter at Easton by Avi is a sequel to Night Journeys. Night Journeys gives valuable support information for Encounter at Easton but the story is still followable without reading that information.

Two indentured servants have run away from their master and the master is searching for them. The story is told from four perspectives as given in depositions: the master, the hired bounty hunter, the sheriff, and the indentured boy. Encounter at Easton gives a clear look at several different areas of Colonial life including indentured servitude, bounty hunting, the attitude toward rape victims (the word rape is not used) and how those areas affected other areas of life.

I would recommend this book to the following people I know: a 4th grade boy, a 4th grade girl who is interested in Colonial life, a teacher of 4-6th grade boys and girls for his classroom.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0380732416, Paperback)

Will Robert and Elizabeth find in Easton the life they want so desperately?

The year is 1768. In eight years, the American Revolution will begin. Two indentured servants, little more than children, escape first from their master and then from a search party determined to turn them over to the authorities. They hope to find work and freedom in the town of Easton. But when Elizabeth is badly wounded, Robert must do all he can to keep her alive.

He's scared--and confused. He needs help from someone, an adult. But should he turn to the wild woman of the woods? Or can he trust Nathaniel Hill, the friendly man he meets in town?
