Rich in language and detail, it is a classic adventure story that begs to be read aloud. With narrator Ron Keith's expressive, resonant voice, the effect is as stirring as the haunting hymn the trumpeter plays from the church tower.
This book is in the reading list for the homeschool history program we use. I was a bit apprehensive at first, as it is quite dated, but we were pleasantly surprised. It's a great book, full of drama and suspense...perfect for my three busy boys.
