Gr 2-4-A readable account of one heroine of the American Revolution. On April 26, 1777, in Patterson (now Ludington), NY, Colonel Ludington received word that the British were attacking and burning Danbury, CT. His 16-year-old daughter eagerly volunteered to spread the word and gather his troops in a dangerous midnight ride. Traveling over dirt roads in pouring rain, encountering outlaws, and battling fatigue, she accomplished her mission. As a result of her efforts, the troops arrived in time to push the British back to their boats rather than complete their march into New York. The afterword explains the young woman's further role in America's fight for independence. The full or half-page watercolor illustrations complement the straightforward, simple text. This is a worthwhile addition to history collections, especially those in need of titles for early or reluctant readers.-Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY

This book was really well-written. The information was thorough, but yet easily understandable for an elementary school audience. This text was much more engaging than a lot of the young reader nonfiction I have encountered. It's a good length, too, for children who are in between readers and chapter books.
I would recommend this book for 2nd grade and up.
My 13-year-old friend, who is now into horses, loved it!
