Laura Secord was a true heroine of the 1812 war between the Americans and the British forces in what is now Canada. This inspiring work of historical fiction is beautifully illustrated in full color.

Through the Looking Glass Children's Book Review - June 1, 2007
"Well written and carefully researched, history comes alive on the pages as we watch Laura struggle through quick sand, face a rattle snake, walk for hours in blazing heat, and brave untold dangers."
