Publisher's Summary

Madeleine Verchère's story is based on a true account of colonial French Canada of the 1690s. Harassed by Iroquois, the Verchère family's fort must keep a continual guard. 14-year-old Madeleine is left alone with two younger brothers and few others when the Indians attack. We follow the brave and determined stratagems of Madeleine and her small circle. Madeleine's youthful leadership, especially of her brothers, will win the reader's admiration.

Amazing exciting story

Where does Madeleine Takes Command rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is great for kids and adults alike. Based on a true story it seems unbelievable to us today what this family went through! My sons loved it as much as my daughter. A must listen/read.
