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.
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.
Samuel, 13, spends his days in the forest, hunting for food for his family. He has grown up on the frontier of a British colony, America. Far from any town, or news of the war against the King that American patriots have begun near Boston. 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. Each day he confronts the enemy, and the tragedy and horror of this war. But he also discovers allies, men and women working secretly for the patriot cause. And he learns that he must go deep into enemy territory to find his parents: all the way to the British headquarters, New York City.
