Review: The Matchlock Gun by Walter D. Edmonds (Author) and Paul Lantz (Illustrator)

Synopsis:  Edward lives in upstate New York with his parents and little sister as one of the earliest settlers to in the New World. When his father leaves to fight Indians, it’s up to Edward to help his mother fight for their lives when the Indians attack them.

Review: This was a quick read, with surprising depth for its brevity. The characters become clear and solid in a few words and the story is excellent. I highly recommend.
