Item Description...
As war nears, Ian M'Kethe is too young to go. His grandfather teaches him to hunt, along with Watookoog, an Indian, who hunts with a bow. Ian takes care of the farm by himself, growing a crop of corn and selling it to provide form his family. Although he really wants a new rifle, he makes a sacrifice and purchases a pair of spectacles for his cousin Roland instead. For the first time in ages, Roland can see clearly.

When the war arrives, Roland enlists. Ian is still too young to go. He continues to work his cornfields and take care of his family. When Roland is taken prisoner at Louisbourg, Ian in consumed with worry. Had Roland been injured? Lost his spectacles? Would the French force him to fight against his own colonials?

Now eighteen, Ian leaves his family and goes to war. But he doesn't get to fight. He find himself engage in manual labor, salvaging debris, moving cannons, digging trenches, and building. One day when he is gathering firewood, he is shot at. An Indian attacks him. But before the Indian can finish him off, Frenchmen take him prisoner.

This is an intriguing story of a boy's life during the French & Indian War. There is a lot of history packed in here, including some historical issues of faith. Overall the story was interesting as were the historical facts and Ian's life on the farm.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Another good Bond book  Oct 14, 2007
My family and I are big fans of Douglas Bond. This book continues the story from Bond's incredible Crown & Covenant series. The adventure is a bit less in this one, but we enjoyed it and as always Bond weaves in significant conversation about key truths. The family along the way goes to hear Jonathan Edwards preach and the sermon is described in the book.
The family also experiences the beginning of the French & Indian War with teh main character being involved in the decisive battle in Canada. Thus, it is a fun way to learn soem history as well.
We would recommend this book.
