On a dark, cold, and rainy night in April 1777, Sybil Ludington sets out on a journey to warn American soldiers that danger is headed their way. The British are coming! They have already attacked a nearby town, and it is up to sixteen-year-old Sybil to make sure that she reaches the American soldiers before the British do. With only a large stick to defend herself, and her horse, Star, for company, Sybil rides off into the perilous night and changes the course of the American Revolution. The true story of Sybil's bravery and perseverance are faithfully related by Marsha Amstel's appealing text and Ellen Beier's finely crafted illustrations.

Sybil Ludington possibly changed the course of the history of our country yet how many people have heard her name.

She is proof that one person can make a difference, a very big difference. Her name and her story should be easily recognized but isn't.

I hope more people will read about her and why her courage and bravery should be more prominent in American history.

This children's book has a message for all ages.
