Fast-paced and exciting read! Great for reluctant readers. I used this book as a Book Club choice in my classroom and was so surprised at how my students who "hate reading" devoured this book and were so excited to discuss it in class each day!
  • Abywis
My son, who does not like to read at all, had to read this as a summer reading assignment and thoroughly enjoyed the book. He actually said he was glad he had to read it.
  • Pemand
Written in a simple, but not inelegant style, featuring a multi-dimensional main character, an engaging plot, and historical detail sufficient for the casual historical fiction fan.
  • Loni

As a student, soon to be teacher, this was an awesome book to read. I found a unit on Courage and I will use that as my introductory book. I would read the book aloud and show the courage this man had and what he endured to get home. This was the best book I have read in a long time. I found the first 2 chapters a little dry but after that I couldn't put the book down!

I purchased the book with my sons in mind but as I started reading it with them I became enthralled. This book is an excellent read for all ages. It gives our children an understanding of the tremendous hardship and sacrifices our parents and grandparents made for America. The story is fast paced, the characters are very compelling - I was hooked from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book for all.
Great read!
