Finley makes the fort come alive through her word images. You'll see the dust, smell the buffalo robes, hear the sounds of the blacksmith. Kids won't even know they're getting a history lesson. — Colo. Springs Gazette, March 7, 1999<br /><br />This book, geared to young readers, tells the story of the fort, now known as Bent's Old Fort. The events of the time are seen through the eyes of 11-year-old Little Fox, a Cheyenne who plays a part in the destruction of the fort. That demise of the Bent's Old Fort has remained a mystery since August of 1849. This story offers one plausible explanation. Author Mary Peace Finley fills out the actual history of the fort at the end making this book a fun way to learn Colorado history. --Colorado Country Life Magazine Nov. 1999
