An interesting children's book, and would be fun as a read aloud. I found the ending rather though there was going to be a sequel. I think this book has more information as a science book than history, but all in all a very good living book.
I liked this book mostly for the change of character of Tobe. I feel like the dialect is a bit hard to get around, but overall it was a nice depiction/introduction to life in the late 1700s.

William O. Steele wrote the stories I loved to read as a boy and happy to say still enjoy as an adult. I plan to search out more of his works.
