Author Info
Gary Paulsen
Gary Paulsen is the author of many critically acclaimed books for young people, including three Newbery Honor Books.
"Paulsen's writing talent makes the various minor characters and the technical detail he provides about the creation and use of a flintlock rifle interesting and understandable. It also makes his message unmistakable and powerful."
"Paulsen is at the peak of his powers in a book that is as shattering as the awful events it depicts. Unforgettable."
From the Publisher
Editors Note A treasured rifle passed down through generations is the cause of a tragic accident in this timely tale. With subtle mastery and precision, this tough, thought-provoking novel challenges the idea that firearms don't become instruments of destruction and murder until they are placed in human hands.     Each book includes a reader's guide.
