Review: The Courage of Sarah Noble by Alice Dalgliesh

Synopsis: In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new home for their family. "Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble, " her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight. The true story of Sarah's journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her Father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all. (from the back of the book)

Review: This is a simple book about a universal truth: being brave isn't about how you feel, but what you do. Sarah is faced with increasingly scary thing, ending with her father leaving her with Indians while he travels back to get her mother. Sarah must be brave, braver than she's ever been. Will she be able?
