This is a fascinating true story of a young woman's ride to assemble the Minutemen in order to fight back the British troops who were attacking at Danbury, Connecticut. Very similar to the story of Paul Revere, but a virtual unknown, even for me growing up in Massachusetts. I love the patriotism and bravery demonstrated by this young woman, and it is a positive story to read to our girls about what women (and girls) can do.

A wonderful true story of a young woman and her long ride to bring the Minuteman to fight against the British in CT. An important read for young girls to show them that there have been strong and brave women throughout history. Great illustrations as well. Paul Revere's story may be better know, but, in my opinion, this story is more important for girls and women!

Excellent story of bravery of a young adult during early U.S. history. 1st-2nd grade reading level. One reference to "ghost" which is not critical to the story (can be skipped over if you are reading it with your child).

An interesting unknown story about a young woman during the War for Independence. Sybil's father is a leader in the military and must rely on her help to get messages through to his soldiers.

Very interesting. I liked Star, her horse. I think that if we didn't have Sybil we wouldn't be here right now.
