From his 1776 Pennsylvania homestead, thirteen-year-old Samuel, who is a highly-skilled woodsman, sets out toward New York City to rescue his parents from the band of British soldiers and Indians who kidnapped them after slaughtering most of their community. Includes historical notes.
From the Publisher:
Hunting for food to support his family on the frontier of an American colony far from the hostilities of the Revolutionary War, 13-year-old Samuel is astonished when his parents are arrested by soldiers, a situation that forces him to make his way to the British headquarters in New York City. By the author of Mudshark.
Annotation:
Set in the midst of the American Revolution, this fascinating and harrowing story follows 13-year-old Samuel as he faces the challenge of his young life. A hunter known as a "woods runner," Samuel provides for his family in the small Pennsylvania settlement they live in. On returning home after time in the forest, Samuel finds everything burned to the ground, with no evidence of his family. Setting off to find them, he runs into trouble of all kinds as he searches for the British soldiers responsible.
