A history lesson wrapped up in high drama. A wonderful read. My nine year old daughter hated reading until she read this and now always has a book in hand. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345369467, Paperback)

Sixteen-year-old Kitty Gentry and her family came to Fort Boonesborough to farm the rich land. But when fierce Shawnee attacked the white settlers, the horrified young Kitty was forced to seek refuge within the walls of the fort. There her real life as a founding mother of Kentucky began -- a life in which she would surive tragedy and hearth-wrenching grief and find the all-encompassing passion of great love as the burgeoning territory became a state . . .
