"We hear complaints from many people that there are not enough fur trade sories for young children, especially girls. . . Dr. Simmons' exciting telling of this incident during the War of 1812 is a pleasant antidote to that criticism. Intended for kids from five to eleven, it's exciting, full of Ron Kil's bright, action-filled pictures, and has a great message of bravery, sacrifice, and patriotism for youngsters. Best of all, it's true."
