Laura Secord was a true heroine. In 1812, Laura Secord lived with her husband and children near Niagara Falls when war was declared between the United States and the British forces in the country now known as Canada. Her name remains legendary today because, after overhearing some news about an ambush that might change the course of the war, she walked for miles behind enemy lines, on her way to warn of the attack. Written as a picture book for readers 6 to 9, this inspiring work of historical fiction is beautifully illustrated in full colour.
Well written and carefully researched, history comes alive on the page.
