Walking into the Wild
Join three siblings on an unforgettable journey in the year 1782. Peace not yet signed with England , and the Foot siblings are walking up into the Republic of Vermont in search of their father. Like other settlers, they’d fled when Tories and Indians raided their cabin, capturing their Pa, and shocking their mother into silence.Though the journey is often lonely and filled with misadventure, there is fun and laughter, too, especially when the three meet up with a winsome young cobbler named Remember Jones.Told by the middle child, 13-year-old rebel Deborah, who has a secret she longs to reveal, but cannot, this is the tale of a girl coming to terms with her conscience, her imperfections, and her budding sexuality. For all three, it’s a search for love and family. ******** The journey through unsettled wilderness filled with threats of catamount, bear and wolves, makes an exciting background for sibling rivalry, loyalty and jealousy. Unforgettable.”Ida H. Washington, co-author of Carleton’s Raid. ** A good introduction to middle schoolers interested in the American Revolution. Historical Novels Review. ** Finely drawn, sensitively portrayed characters make this historical novel a standout!” Nancy K.Wallace, author, youth services librarian, and Voya reviewer.
