American Adventures -Thomas by Bonnie Pryor illustrated by Bert Dodson*

Thomas' father leaves him, his mother, his sister and baby brother to help General Washington's army.  In frontier Pennsylvania, Thomas and his family live in fear of the Indians (who are helping the Tories) and Tories.  A group of Tories burn down their house and barn, slaughter their cow and steal their horse.  The family (minus the father) is forced to travel to Forty Fort for protection.  Thomas and his new friend, then uncover a scheme to eliminate those in the fort.  How will his family survive?
A very exciting narrative about history.
This book will appeal to reluctant readers as the plot moves along quickly.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
*More in series-Thomas in Danger; two books about Luke (Gold Rush); and Joseph (Civil War).
A must read series when studying American History!
