Seeds of Rebellion: The First French and Indian War

Teresa Williams Irvin. HeartChild Publishing (www.teresairvin.com), $12.95 paper (142p) ISBN 978-0-9799395-4-9
In this brief historical coming-of-age story, set against the First French and Indian War circa 1755 and partially inspired by a bit of family history, a teenage boy is caught up in the brutality and chaos of frontier life and battle. Believing that his family doesn't love or want him, 13-year-old Josh Bedford runs away from home, ending up in George Washington's militia stationed at Fort Cumberland. There, he struggles with new responsibilities, with Daniel Boone and Washington himself acting as protectors and mentors. As the British redcoats, led by General Braddock, enter the conflict against the French and Indians, Josh sees firsthand the horror of war, an experience that forever changes how he interacts with the world. Irvin's story incorporates real events and historical personages to give Josh's adventures verisimilitude and atmosphere. An introduction and an endnote help to provide context, making this as much a history lesson as a work of fiction. A good way to introduce younger readers to the lesser-known events that preceded the American Revolution. Ages 12–up.
