Item description for The Bandit of Ashley Downs: George Muller (Trailblazer Books #7) by Neta Jackson Dave Jackson...
Thrilling adventure stories introducing young readers (ages 8-12) to Christian heroes of the past.
By the time Curly Roddy was twelve years old, he'd already survived six years as a homeless orphan on the cruel streets of London in the 1870s. He slept in dustbins and ate orange peels when he could find them. Sometimes he earned a few coins by singing and doing acrobatics in pubs. He had perfected his skills at snatching purses and picking pockets.
But when Curly overheard that a church was raising 3,000 for an orphan house in Bristol, his scheme of an armed robbery promised to bring him enough money for a lifetime. Enlisting the help of a local thug and thief, Spud Baxter, a plan is soon put into place. With Spud's pistol and brute force, the church's treasure should easily be taken.
But the highway robbery brings Curly more trouble than he had bargained for. Is it scarier to be sent to the orphanage from which he stole the money than to be sent to prison? Will George Mller, the man in charge of the orphanage, make Curly into a slave to earn back at least a portion of the money? Or might they do something even worse?
Curly's in for the biggest surprise of his young life!

FYI Nov 4, 2006
I am not the recipient of this book. An associate of my daughter will be carrying the book, with others, back to India for my 13 year old grandson. It will be used as part of his homeschool studies. The 1-star rating is only because you demanded it (it may deserve much higher). I am, indeed, over the age of 13 -- by nearly seven decades.

I read this book to my 8 and 10 year-olds as a bed time story. We read two chapters per night and they were spell-bound. They had a hard time not reading ahead to see what would happen. A great story with a great message about trusting God to provide.
