The author recreates the life story of Joe Two Trees, which the elderly Algonquin told to Kazimiroff's father. "A portrait of youth and age, pupil and teacher, the story is an astonishing account," according to PW. Ages 12-up. (Nov.) r

Format: Paperback
The Last Algonquin is a sad but heartwarming story about a man and his attempts to come to grips with his place in the world. The fact that this man, Joe Two Trees, is the last of his tribe of the Algonquin's makes his journey that much harder and more interesting. If you are looking for an official history of the American Indians, this isn't the book for you. However, if you are looking for a deep and touching story of one American Indian, and what we as a nation have lost by ignoring the heritage of American Indians, then you will enjoy this book. Mr. Kazimiroff has done an excellent job of preserving the story given to him by his father and keeping the memory of Joe Two Trees and the Algonquin Indians alive.

This is a must read, especially for those of us raised in the Pelham Bay section of Bronx. The tale of The Last Algonquin is inspiring and heartwarming. And, I hope that Mr. Kazimiroff realizes that he has given The Bronx, the Algonquin Indians and his father the immortality they truly deserve.
Remember as long as someone tells( hears or reads) this tale, the story of Joe Two Trees will continue to live on among the rocks and trees of Pelham Bay Park.

I found this book to be a really fun read. It is well written with great discriptions of what life was like in New York in the 1800's. Equally sad and revealing is this story of one of the last Indians in the New York regions. It is a story of a boy who in the 1920's happens upon an aged Indian who has to to tell his story to someone so that it is never forgotten. The Indian, Joe Two Trees, does in fact have a story that should be told over and over so that we should not forget that at one time he and his people were really the first Americans on this continent. This is a story that should be shared with any children that you have.

This is one of the most fascinating books I have Ever read. I feel it is true because it rings true, despite one review that 'debunks' this book as a fanciful tale. It is written with a terse and blunt honesty. My gut feeling and the credentials of the author as a historical researcher incline me to believe it, that it was not embellished. I gave this book to my wife and she could not put it down and read it through in one marathon sitting. I'm reading it again and it is unbelievably touching. People are indeed like ships passing in the night, you never know what path their shoes have taken them. This one will touch your Soul

Format: Hardcover
Rarely does the written word evoke such magic, drama and adventure as does
The Last Algonquin. Kazimiroff has penned a masterpiece! In 1924 a young
boy, Kazimiroff's father, encountered a lone Algonquin indian still living
in the wilds of Hunter and Twin Islands in the Bronx, New York. The
mysterious, aged Algonquin, knowing that death is near, entrusts the story
of his life to the young boy. What unfolds is the life of a man; the last
of his people. A story that would have been lost to the ages had it not
been for an adventurous young boy and a chance encounter. As the pages
unfold you will laugh and cry, sink to despair and rise again in triumph!
A must read. This book has classic written all over it!

A page turner!! Simplistic in many ways but great for a Summer read. Based on a true story in a real place. Very enjoyable if you lived in or near the Long Island Sound and are familiar with the setting.

Joe Two Trees is the last of his tribe. New York in the early twentieth century is not for him. Or is it? As a native New Yorker with a passion for the past, I loved this beautiful story. Whenever I return home, I can no longer visit the Bronx (especially Pelham Bay) without thinking of Joe and his relationship with Theodore Kazimoroff's father. The writing is lovely, and the story evokes all sorts of feelings at so many levels. It was my Aunt, a former teacher, who told me that I should read this book. It has become one of those novels that I recommend to others regularly.

What a surprising book. I found it in a library book sale marked "destroy". Lost in the stacks of time, I guess. This is the true story of a native american who lived most of his life hidden away in Pelham Bay on the outskirts of the growing New York City. He believed throughout his life that he was the last living Indian, and told his life's story to a small boy just before his death in 1924. Beautiful writing by the son of the Boy as a memorial to his dad just after his death in 1980.
