In 4th grade (about 23 years ago) our teacher read us a book called Star Eye - about a white boy taken captive by American Indians and assimilated into their culture, if I remember right. I don't know the author and when I searched for it here, nothing came up. I'm looking to add it to my library, but haven't found any information on it. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks!

Can you remember any other details of the book?  There are a lot of Indian captive novels, and maybe with more specific details someone could be of help.  The closest thing to your title I found was Jinian Star-Eye, but that looks like a science fiction novel.

I found that one too. I remember vaguely that it had a primarily white cover. My teacher is really elderly now and is having significant health problems - don't know if she would even remember it. I'm thinking of researching some other sites to see if it has an ISBN or even Lib of Congress number. When I last read it, it would have been the late 70's. Don't know if it was an old book at the time or new. Not much help, I know...
