The Prize: Tales From a Revolution – Vermont
Puddletown Publishing Group, 2011
Brief Candle Press, 2013
Caleb’s father is serving with Ethan Allen’s Green Mountain Boys as the long-anticipated open war against the British rages up and down the length of Lake Champlain. Between his duties on the family farm and constant worry about his father’s safety, the young man’s attentions are already fully occupied when a fateful encounter with an unlikely neighbor changes everything. Pulled into new intrigues and new friendships, Caleb finds himself on a path that changes his life – and which will affect the outcome of the whole war.
Great historical fiction can bring history to life in a way that is very difficult to accomplish in a classroom lecture, and the Tales From a Revolution books are acclaimed both for their historical accuracy and their rich storytelling.
