An approachable, personal story of 13-year-old Jonathan's experiences during his 24 hours midst quite unglamorous but very dangerous skirmishes during the Revolutionary War takes place in 1778 near Trenton, New Jersey. Dramatic tension is heightened by the use of literary and visual devices within a cinematic story. (Ages 9-14)
