it was amazing

I read the Rifle by Gary Paulsen. It was a book that had a lot of action. This is because it’s a book about the revolutionary war. Obviously a war book would have action. In this book this person named Cornish McManus made a really good rifle. It had a .30 caliber tube so it was 40 inches long, he used the best steel. It was really accurate and it was deadly. It soon gets sold to this person named John Byam which goes into war with the rifle. When he was finished with it, he passed it down many generations until it reached a boy named Harv. He then made a bad mistake with the rifle since he did not know how to use it lead to death and he does not know what to do.
He tried to hide what he had done and he hid the rifle away where no one can find it. He always blamed himself for what he had done.
