Format: Hardcover
It is the summer of 1859, in North Elba, New York. Fifteen-year-old Annie Brown is the spirited young teenage daughter of John Brown, the infamous radical abolitionist and antislavery crusader. Annie is staying in North Elba with her mother, her two younger sisters: thirteen-year-old Sarah and five-year-old Ellen, and her two older brothers Jason and Salmon. The family receives a letter from Annie's father, requesting Annie and her older brother Oliver's seventeen-year-old beloved wife Martha's presence with him and his men in Virginia.

Annie's mother does not want them to go. Ever since John's attack on Kansas a few years ago---an event where John killed many proslavery voters---which later earned the sanguinary nickname "Bloody Kansas," she is frightened that she will lose more members of the family. After all, John Jr. became mentally unstable after being captured by police and dragged through Kansas in chains. After Bloody Kansas, Jason and Salmon adamantly refuse to help their father any longer. His two sons are now dead to him. But nothing can stop Martha from joining her husband Oliver Brown, even risking danger in Virginia. Seeing that she was requested in the letter, Annie feels heartened that her father desires her presence, for she has had a forever alternating love-hate relationship with him ever since she accidentally caused the scalding death of her younger sister Amelia when Annie was three. He has cruelly never forgiven her since then.

But when Martha and Annie head out to Virginia under the aliases as family members of Isaac Smith---John's code name---they discover John has been keeping sixteen men in the Kennedy farm's cabin house.

The invigorating story of a young 15 year old girl and her legendary father, John Brown. The book takes place in the 1800's when most people are destitute. Annie, the daughter of John Brown is learning to take on the role of the housegold mother, because of that loss in her family. She spends most of the summer out on the porch being a look out for visitors. She is doing this because her father is plannig the U.S. Harper Ferry raid,to free the slaves,and if anyone knows he is gone they will start to be suspicious and ask questions. Annie's lover Dauphin is among the six men to acopmany John on his mission.This book contains amazing historical information, as well as a classic love story to go along for the ride.The story concludes with a blast of shock and keeps you turning pages to find out what is going to happen next. The characters in this story are strong suited with character, and that is what makes the book interesting. In the end it all come together and you get a vivid picture in your mind of what the characters, time, and place looked like.

The newest Rinaldi book focused on the real person, Annie Brown, daughter of John Brown, who tried to free the slaves. Annie is only 15 years old and comes to help with all the men, and to make the "Smiths", as they are called to not have suspicion, more normal. John Brown still hasn't forgiven Annie, because when Annie was 3, and her little sister Amelia 1, Annie would watch Amelia.One day Annie found a little bird and started to chase it. Amelia went right to a pot of scalding hot water. And she fell in. The next day she died. And John Brown blames it on Annie. Annie must be forgiven but it's really hard to talk to her father who calls her, "Strange Annie." and who cares for the slaves more then his own children. But Annie comes to make friends with the men and is depressed when she returns home and hears news of the awful Harpers Ferry Raid, which was what John Brown was planning to do that summer at the Kennedy Farm.

This book was a definate GRABBER. Who couldn't love it? Beats me! I learned a whole lot. Well, you probably want to hear the story now, so here it goes: Annie Brown has been called by her father (the famous John Brown) to be the "watchdog" of his little hideout. The deal is, he is planning this raid at Harper's Ferry, to show his views on slavery. So, he is housing about 20 or so men in this house, and Annie is assigned to watch on the porch to see if anyone comes by and finds out. Well, that dreadful raid holds a sadness down on Annie: it threatens to seperate her and her love/fiance, Dauphin Thompson. So, it's really sad. Especially when you hear about the raid results. You are practically depressed yourself when you find out about what happens to Annie's fiance, brothers, and simply the men she grew attached to at the cabin. It's SO sad! Well, that is what makes it even more worth reading. I guarrantee you'll love this, so read it!

John Brown is an antislavery cursader who is secretly plotting an assult and is waiting for the right time to excecute it. He asks his fifteen year old daughter Annie, form her beautiful home in Maine, to come help on the Kennedy Farm in Virgina over the summer. Annie obeys her father's wish hoping to make ammends with him and helps keep the farm in order by keeping her main job as the lookout for strangers. Annie is astonished that he asked her instead of her four other brothers and sisters. Mine Eyes Have Seen by Ann Rinaldi is a great historical fiction book that should be read by students all over the world. Although the book was confusing at tiimes the true story of John Brown is a graet learning experience for young teens. It took me a few chapters to get into the book but overall it was still worth it to have read it all. If teachers are looking for a great learning experience for their students I would recogmend this book.
