Madeleine Verchère’s story is based on a true account of colonial French Canada of the 1690’s. 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.
