Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic story of one family torn apart by the Revolutionary War

All his life, Tim Meeker has looked up to his brother Sam. Sam's smart and brave — and is now a part of the American Revolution. Not everyone in town wants to be a part of the rebellion. Most are supporters of the British — including Tim and Sam's father.

With the war soon raging, Tim know he'll have to make a choice — between the Revolutionaries and the Redcoats . . . and between his brother and his father.

Synopsis:

Young Tim Meeker is caught between his brother's patriotism and his father's Tory sympathies in this story of the American Revolution. This classic is now repackaged in this paperback format.
