Review: Duel in the Wilderness
Duel in the Wilderness by Karin Clafford Farley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Excellent read for kids or adults on background of George Washington's first significant enterprise that gained him notoriety.
Good writing that conveys the complicated politics and dealings between French, Indian and English with simple prose and dialogue. Also shows the brutality, diplomacy and values of each people. Well worth the read.
There's a mild swear word once or twice, and one description of brutality. Maybe best for 11-14 age range, studying French-Indian War and/or American Revolution background.
