This book is the best I have ever read. When I took this book off the library shelf, I was thinking, "Is this a good book?" When I opened the cover and started reading, I just couldn't stop. In my opinion, it is the best book ever (just exagerrating it).
Incident at Hawk's Hill is about a six year old boy named Ben, and his family. Ben was a very shy boy and seemed to get along more with animals than with people, even his own family. But then one day, he was following a chicken and disappeared into the prairie. MacDonald, Ben's father, found out that he actually loved his youngest son after he had slapped him. He quickly organized a search party of thirty-two men, asking for them to search the prairies and a sign of Ben. But after two long days and nights, the search party quit. MacDonald refused to quit knowing that Ben was still alive and that he loved him.
Then one day, John, Ben's brother found traces of Ben's shoe which had fallen off after a terrible rainstorm. When he followed Ben's supposed trail of looking for a shelter, he found his brother, all dirty and grimy and took him back home. It had taken a lot of energy to get Ben back home.
When John took Ben home, the family was overjoyed. When Ben recognized them and told them stories of him meeting a badger, feeding it and living with it, they all seemed afraid until they learned that Ben loved his badger and wanted to take good care of him.
