This is a wonderfully-written historical fiction of the time period of the early 1800s. The boy, a young George Dewey, later to become the famous admiral, spends the summer on a Vermont farm. If you are looking for a taste of the rural life of the time period, whether for your own reading enjoyment or to give young readers a sense of the time and place, you cannot go wrong with this lovely story.
