LibraryThing Review

User Review  - fuzzi - LibraryThing

A disappointing read by a well-known author, based upon a true story from the Revolutionary War of the late 1700s. As this was published about the time of Scott O'Dell's death, I can't help but wonder if someone "finished" the book for him. Not recommended. Read full review
