    This is a decent little book a quick read at 140 pages about a group of heroic men, led by Commander Knox of the Continental Army, who faced many challenges in moving heavy cannon from Ft Ticonderoga, NY, down the Hudson, and east across the Berkshire Mountains and all of Massachusetts to Boston, at the request of General Washington The book bounces back and forth from the Patriots perspective and British General Howe, who has some difficulties of his own in Boston I don t want to give any spoilers, but just know it s a pretty descriptive narrative account of what happened in the winter of 1776 that might have saved the effort for independence in the colonies.

    If you are in any way interested in the revolutionary war or the heroics of the soldiers of that time I recommend this quick read book I found the strategy of fighting and the plan to liberate Boston from the British to rejuvenate the enthusiasm and drive of the colonist soldiers to be the most interesting I especially enjoyed the way the book was written as a first hand account of the events that led the colonies another step closer to becoming the United States.

    Great story I cried again at the end This time I learned from this book that ordinary people can do impossible things that can change the world Without the guns that the Knox brothers delivered to General Washington the Patriots would not have been able to kick the British out of Boston Without the guns they wouldn t have won the war either.This is a fabulous book to read to your children when you study the Revolutionary War.

    I edited my review Originally I gave 4 stars after reading with one of my kiddos Today I finished re reading with a different kiddo and admittedly I didn t like it as much I rate 2.5 stars Just didn t stand out or hold my attention But overall an ok read.

    Candace tried reading to kids in 7 05, but they got bored with the long introductory chapters before the action maybe skip those chapters next time and give them a synopsis of what s happening and go from there I found it fascinating.

    This book will interest children, and especially boys ages 7 12 about one of the greatest successful missions of the American Revolution It includes good uses of primary resources in songs and letters.

  8. says:

    Interesting slightly fictionalized account of Henry Knox s expedition to get cannons 300 miles to GW Great read for upper elementary I got a little tired of the part about Paul Revere, Jr., but I understand the writer did it to show us what it was like for rebels remaining in Boston.

    My nine year old and I read this together, and we both really enjoyed the story

    Horrible Just horrible I abhor this book One of the reviews on the cover said something like, A fast paced, delightful adventure story WRONG It s just like, it was a horrible blizzard Henry was riding up and down the lines when he heard a sharp cry JT said, Oh no It looks like the oxen got too cold They can t pull the guns any Remember my 3rd sentence Well, I say it again I ABHOR THIS BOOK
