I would rate this book five stars because it gives you diferent types of thoughts if he is going to make it out alive .Just at the ending at the book he escape death but saved . I think people from all ages would enjoy this book .Also by the book you understand what the character and has good detail about them .

The conflict in this story is that Samuel's parents were taken away . Also he has to overcome obsticals that are hard becauseehe is fighting agains the british solders and it is person vs person .The resolution is that samuel did not give up to get his parents back. Also he overcome the obstical and he is a good leader.

The name of the character is Samuel . He lives in the wilderness . And takes place in the 1776. He is and protagonist in the story . An adjective that can describe him as inspiring becuse he never gave up to save his family and he was a good leader. A qoute i found in the book in page 11 was " Those peoplein the world who were supposed to be civilized, full of knoeledge and wisdom and graciousness and wealthand educated were caught in the madness of vicious, bloody war". Also i was suprised of the power of people not giving up .
