Summer of Red Rain

Author: Susan T. Davis

112 pages, paperback


Historical fiction.  Thirteen-year old Samuel’s curiosity and empty promises continue to get the best of him. He finds himself caught up in the middle of the Battle of Oriskany, during the American Revolution.  The realty of war erases his imaginary boyhood dreams of glory when he feels the fatigue of the march and sees the horrors of battle.  When Samuel comes face to face with a young Indian, what will he do?
