Sybil's Ride of Courage
Jade S. Miller
Based on an inspiring true story, Jade Miller brings to life an unsung hero from the Revolutionary War. When British troops landed in Connecticut and threatened American homes and soldiers, someone had to ride out and warn the militia. A girl named Sybil Ludington, only sixteen years old, took up the charge and rode out to spread the word. The result was a forty-mile ride through the dangerous wilderness, a ride far longer and more treacherous than the one taken by the famous Paul Revere. Sybil must race against time, the elements, and the British Army, and once she starts there is no turning back. Can she make it in time?
