ENGL 330 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "Ruby Roland, adopted daughter of the first war-chief of the West, seeks a man named Colonel Clark so that she can negotiate an alliance with the Americans during the Revolutionary War. Accompanied by Colonel Daniel Boone and Captain Simon Kenton, the three must use their stealth and quick wits to thwart the Shawnee sent by the British, who wish to prevent the alliance. In an intriguing account of female power and prestige, little Ruby Roland, at about seventeen years of age, proves herself as good, if not better, than the men she grows to consider friends. Fearless, she aids Colonel Boone and Captain Kenton in the journey to Harrodsburg, narrowly escaping the hostile “savages” before she can meet the man who decides the fate of her father’s proposal. After they arrive, it is not long before Ruby begins to fall in love, and with whom the reader will have to find out for themselves!"--Riley Coules, undergraduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 330, Spring 2018
