Based on a true story. In 1707, eight-year-old Sarah Noble goes with her father into the wilderness of Connecticut. There her father builds a house and clears land, while Sarah keeps camp and cooks. There are many things to be afraid of in the wild, but she always reminds herself to keep up her courage by holding the red cape her mother sent with her and repeating her mother's words: "Keep up your courage... Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble!" When her father leaves to bring the rest of the family back Sarah is left in the care of a neighboring Indian tribe, where she learns the meaning of trust and friendship.

great book and guide was fun to follow.
This has been a helpful supplement to our reading.
It covers vocabulary, reading comprehension, thinking deeper, biblical references and has some fun activities. It's challenging but appropriately so, not too much for any child I believe.
We used this guide and enjoyed it. There is a study of vocabulary in each section, discussion questions, and questions for critical thinking. I especially appreciate the use of the Bible in some of the questions.
