Any boy reader will enjoy this exceptionally fine and thrilling story of border warfare during the Revolutionary period and immediately after it, when the frontier was moving from the old colonies westward into Kentucky and Ohio and then beyond. The hero is captured in an Indian raid, is adopted by Shawnees and stays with them until, after a treaty, white captives are surrendered. He holds his affection for his Indian friends even during the bitter years when he fights against them as a Border Ranger. His troubled with an ignorant militia officer and with renegade whites form the basis of that part of the story which follows the Revolution, and the reader takes leave of Rodney Buckner as he sets out to help conquer the still farther frontier. The Indian and his tragedy of being driven off the land he has held is sympathetically pictured, as well as the spirit that animated the white people who pressed on, ever extending the frontier.
