Publisher's summary

Colonel George Washington's perilous experiences in the French and Indian War are chronicled in this riveting account of God's providence and protection. 

The only officer on horseback to avoid being shot down, young Washington openly attributed his miraculous escape from harm to the intervention of a sovereign God. A story once founded in student textbooks, this awe-inspiring adventure is recaptured in a modern edition.

Annoying sound effects

It just distracted from an otherwise wonderful story. It made it hard to hear the test. It did not add to the experience. I don’t mean to be negative about the product, but I wasn’t listening for the show... that should, at most been background. It was not. The story was epic. Thank you for that.

Amazing story and very entertaining

Amazing story and read in a very entertaining way with much audio fanfare. We are indeed blessed that our founding father was protected in his early exploits, for had he fallen our struggle for independence would have taken a much different path.

A True American Hero

This will documented and eye witnessed record of history is a rich blessing to every patriot. There can be no doubt that our country was guided into existence by a team of hand picked men who together were able to discern God's hand of providence when He moved. For this I am forever grateful to both God and His humble servants.

A True Masterpiece

Listening to this book helps bring George Washington alive to me. With the accompanying music and sound effects, it’s almost as if you are watching a movie. I’ve listened to this recording several times and highly recommend it to any listener.

Excellent!!

The historical account and telling of these events is a testimony to the ever enduring struggle of man with God and of God's ability to keep a righteous man in the face of the folly of men and of evil.
At times there were skips or static interference in the playing of the story. If this is from Audibe or the original recording, I dont know, but I will find out. I'm buying this recording, it was such a powerful story.
Parents should review this first. There are graphic accounts of war that may be too disturbing for children.

Read it

Great short story, never heard much about the French and Indian war in school and definitely didn’t hear about the incredible account of Washingtons providential shield. Will probably relisten again one day!
