Gary Paulsen very effectively tells the story of one boy's experiences during the American Revolution, while interspersing interesting nonfiction information before each chapter. It's very readable and kept my interest throughout. As in Soldier's Heart, Paulsen shows us what war is really like - and it's pretty horrifying. Not all is bleak though - the book also reveals the power of friendship and support among people in need. Excellent historical fiction.
