John Treegate's Musket eBook (EPUB) By Leonard Wibberly This is absolutely one of our children’s favorite series! We are so thrilled to see it now back in print! It is 1769, ten years since America’s colonial militia had joined with the British regular army and defeated the French for dominion of Canada. The current attitude about what it means to be loyal to the King has changed. While many colonists are angry about England’s unjust taxation, wealthy merchant John Treegate remains fiercely loyal and certain that an agreement can be reached between the colonies and their mother country. Deciding to travel to England to appeal to the government in England means leaving his motherless, eleven-year-old son Peter on his own. Peter is apprenticed to one of Treegate’s friends, a manufacturer of barrel staves. His new master is not severe, but the master’s senior apprentice is a vicious bully. A chain of events leads to trouble for Peter—involving murder, shipwreck, loss of memory, adoption by a strange and bitter Scotsman, until finally he is reunited with his father on the eve of America’s battle for independence. This is the first title in the acclaimed Treegate Series, perfect for 9th grade study of American History. (177 pp, Ages 14-up) File Type: EPUB *Change any format to fit your reader.
