The only survivors of an Indian raid on their Texas farm, Lewallen and Eula Bee are taken captive. Kept apart in the village, Lewallen whistles his sister’s favorite song to remind her he is near. After a daring escape, he meets a former neighbor named Cabral, who has always been mistrusted by Lewallen’s family. However, because Cabral’s two children are also captives of the Comanches, they reluctantly set out together to ransom them and on the way find unexpected kinship. Despite setbacks and agonizing delays, Lewallen finally sets out on his dangerous mission and forces a confrontation with the Kiowa brave who killed his family—the same man Eula Bee now looks to for protection. Patricia Beatty’s affecting novel of courage and determination is set against a realistic background of frontier life in the 1860s. “An excellent historical novel.” The Horn Book “An exciting story of the Western frontier.” School Library Journal “Tightly plotted and eventful.” Booklist

    I could hardly put this book down sometimes. Sometimes I didn't. :) It's about a family who gets separated by an indian attack. A brother and sister become slaves of the indians, and eventually he escapes and rescues his little sister from the indians and makes it to a fort. I could hardly put this book down sometimes.

Tapi ada banyak hal yg tidak diduganya; nasib yg menimpa Pak Cabral, Tomas, Angelita dan Eula Bee. . Membaca buku lawas ini membuat saya membayangkan suasana Texas pada 1800an. Peperangan, perburuan bison, naik kuda, perkemahan suku Indian. Pak Cabral memang misterius dan tidak ramah. Saya tidak menyukainya, tp nasib yg menimpanya ketika dia berusaha menyelamatkan anaknya membuat saya pilu. Lew memang berhasil menyelamatkan sang adik, tapi yg terjadi setelah itu tidak seperti yg diharapkannya.

    I read this as a young teen, I can't recommend nor rate it, because I don't remember it well enough. I vaguely remember being intrigued by the story, and possibly liking it... but I have found that I was somewhat naïve as a young teenager so I'm not sure how the author treats the subject matter. I don't know if the Native-Americans are treated in a positive light or if it is steeped in prejudice, generalizations or stereotype. I also don't know if this was supposed to be based on a true story. I I read this as a young teen, I can't recommend nor rate it, because I don't remember it well enough.

I've looked back at books I read and liked in my youth and discovered some heinous shit that I'd not had the awareness/experience to notice. I don't know if this book is one of those. So I'll just say I don't remember if it's worth reading.

    This was a good book for middle school aged readers. The vocabulary was sometimes elementary but the story line was enjoyable. This book is largely effected by the civil war. Lewallen Collier was on his farm with his father off at war when his home was raided. Taken prisoner by the comanche indians, the young collier must escape and save his sister. This is an overall great book and I would definitely recommend it.

    This is a story about a young boy and his sister who were kidnapped by a tribe of indians. When the two are split up, he does everything he can to make sure he gets back to her safely. I rated this book three stars only because this is not my favorite genre. It was well written and would be a great choice for middle schoolers, grades 5-8.

    Good little story and actually shows both sides of the white settlers vs native americans. Story is told through the eyes of a 12 yr old boy.

    Pretty amazing story of a brave, and sometimes foolish, determined boy to save his sister and the harrowing adventures in the process.

During the journey to the Comanche camp, Lewallen si Comanche Indians attack the Collier farm in West Texas soon after Mr. Collier and his oldest son, Johnny, leave to join the Confederate Army. Mrs. Collier, Uncle Joshua, and her youngest son, Daniel, are killed. Lewallen and Eula Beatrice (Eula Bee) Collier are taken prisoner. A few days after the attack, their captors are joined by another war party. These Indians have Tomas and Angelita Cabral, the children of the Collier's nearest neighbor. During the journey to the Comanche camp, Lewallen sings "Leonora," Eula Bee's favorite song. The Indians regard his singing as an act of bravery. The girls are given to Yellow Wolf and adopted as daughters. Many Horses takes Lewallen and Small Buffalo gets Tomas. Both boys become slaves doing woman's work. When Lewallen saves Many Horses life during a buffalo stampede, Lewallen becomes Many Horses' pony herder. He escapes, travels to Fort Belknap, and stays the winter with the Commanding Officer Claiborne and his wife. At the fort, Lewallen meets Mr. Joseph Cabral, Tomas' and Angelita's father. In the spring, they head for Comanche territory to ransom the children. One of my favorite authors wrote this phenomenal historical novel. Lewallen’s loyalty and bravery stand as testament of this country’s frontier spirit! Eula Bee makes a great family read-aloud book.

    This is a great “Cowboy and Indian” story, set in North Texas and New Mexico during the early years of the Civil War. The author researched thoroughly to bring a historically correct story about two siblings who were taken captive by Comanche Indians. The book is an appropriate read for young adults, especially boys.

    In my opinion, Wait for Me, Watch for Me, Eula Bee tackles the difficult subject of white settler vs. American Indian in a way that is neither overly defensive of either group nor filled with sententious proclamations and 20-20 hindsight from a comfortable armchair in the 21st century. This author managed to tell a story and bring plenty to the table to discuss and I appreciate that.

    Lewallen Collier and his younger sister were captured by Comanche Indians in Civil War era Texas. Lew knew his chances of escape were better if he went alone. He was determined to return for Eula Bee, he told ner she must watch and wait for his return. Very moving.

    By the time I finished reading this book aloud to my former fifth grade students, there was not a dry eye in the classroom. This book is about commitment to family and goals, as well as perserverance through difficult times.

    I read this book when I was a kid, and loved it. Ran out of things to read at the cabin yesterday and so picked it up. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. It's a good one. It's young adult/historical fiction. I read this book when I was a kid, and loved it. Ran out of things to read at the cabin yesterday and so picked it up.

    This book is one of the few that have earned the distinction of making me cry. Throughout the tension-filled story of the wild, wild West, it's impossible to forget what it really is--the story of one boy's quest to rescue the only family left to him.

    It's been thirteen years since I read this, and I still distinctly remember how disturbing I found it. Descriptions of people getting scalped by Comanches = not appropriate for fifth graders.
