Item description for Firefly: The Many Faces of Courage by Rich Hughes...

The discovery of papers written by a confidant of General George Washington leads to a startling revelation about the American Revolution. A few unheralded people may have saved America! In 1775, there is no Colonial army, no navy, virtually nothing to oppose the mighty British war machine. The odds against America are ominous! Travis Danvers is astonished when George Washington asks him to reduce the odds - all by himself. What can Travis possibly do? Ansom Chandler is formidable with his long rifle, but can he defeat his haunting past? Audacious Betsy Haber can outwit redcoat sentinels, but can she escape the clutches of bloodthirsty Tories? Can Samuel, a Native American, survive the savagery of the times? Is Elizabeth Bishop a traitor? How can she, the daughter of a British naval commander, justify her friendship with the rebels? Where can she find peace amidst the tumult of an "impossible" love, a terrifying kidnapping, and the dictates of her heritage? Every ounce of courage and faith that these extraordinary people possess will be needed to help America survive its perilous birth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Firefly: The Many Faces of Courage?

Be Entertained while you LEARN  Aug 13, 2002
The big surprise of this book is the ease of its prose, that takes the slow-moving day to day happenings of the American Revolution and makes it suspenseful in a way that it, in reality, may not have been. Additionally, the reader learns SO MUCH about the technical and strategic aspects of this early war -- we all take for granted that it was fought...and we won...but have we ever stopped to consider what that victory consisted of? Have you ever asked yourself how scraggly, uncoordinated Americans managed to overcome the highly-developed British army? Read on, learn, and you will be truly proud to be an American...a perfect companion for much of the patriotism that surrounds the anniversary of September 11th.
