Samuel, 13, has grown up on the frontier of a British colony, America, far away from any news of the war. But the war comes to them. British soldiers and Iroquois attack. Samuel''s parents are taken away, prisoners. Samuel follows, hiding, moving silently, determined to find a way to rescue them.
From the Publisher:
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.
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.

Praise

"Paulsen's talent for scene-setting, especially in exciting wilderness drama, is paired here with a vivid story of the American Revolution....The story is instantly involving..." - Julie Just 02/14/2010

"Though no sources are provided for the nonfiction elements, the effective pairing of fiction and nonfiction makes this a superb reflection on the nature of war." 01/01/2010

"Paulsen fortifies this illuminating and gripping story with interspersed historical sections that offer details about frontier life and the war (such as technology, alliances, and other period information), helping place Sam's struggles in context. " 12/21/2009
