Sam and Mack: A Boy and His Dog: White Squirrel: Lenape Brave, a new book by Sherinda Ryter, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Much preferring soccer and exploring the woods with his dog, Mack, than going to school, Sam, a fourth grader, finds himself burdened with a Social Studies assignment about local Native Americans that he has no interest in.

That is, until Mack leads him to a special place in the woods where Sam discovers an intriguing mystery that inspires him to soak up all the knowledge of local Native American culture that he can and give his all for the assignment. White Squirrel offers the reader suspense intermingled with some fantasy and delight as Sam becomes excited about learning more about his area's history.
