Annotation: The Revolutionary War is raging. Food and firewood are scarce, and Tempe Wick is worried that she will not be able to care for her ailing mother and her family and still maintain the farm. Her ability to hold on to her world is threatened when a mutinous soldier demands that she lend him her beloved horse in exchange for keeping her brother' s rum-smuggling activities secret from the authorities. This dramatic historical novel is based on a real event that has been popularized into American legend.
