About the Book

Overview

In this true story of bravery and determination, a young girl named Sybil Ludington risks darkness and danger to help the Revolutionary War effort. The British are invading, and it is up to her to muster the troops for defense. Karen B. Winnick skillfully captures the hazards of wartime, Sybil's courage, and her spirited colt with a suspenseful account and rich illustrations.

Reviews

"[Winnick] recounts the journey, telling of Sybil's determination and bravery. Earth-toned illustrations capture the harsh elements and the danger that Sybil faced on this courageous ride, and an archival map of Sybil's route reinforces the story of this little-known historical event." --Reading Teacher
