Summary

In 1756, New York State was still a British colony, and the French and the Indians were constant threats to young Edward and his family. When his father was called away to watch for a raid from the north, only Edward was left to protect Mama and little Trudy. His father had shown him how to use the huge matchlock gun, an old Spanish gun that was twice as long as he was, but would Edward be able to handle it if trouble actually came?

Interesting Pre-revolutionary war adventure story

The voices the narrator used really added to the life of the story, but the story itself pulls you in and makes you thirsty for more.

My daughters call it 5 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠

This was such a quick read. We finished it in two lunch periods. My daughters say it is five stars as does my son. My oldest says it is left open for another story. She also says they could have made the story that the Indians wanted people off their land and not to be killing just because they were murderers. My middle daughter enjoyed the story and wants to know if there is more, a continuation.

We own a paperback with illustrations and an Audible audiobook. The narrator was very good with his accent work and it was worthwhile to listen to and we will again. (My oldest daughter already has.)
