Product Description

Nineteen-year-old Will Knox is frustrated with life in General Washington's army. The men have been under seige for months, and now fighting is at a standstill because of the bitter winter cold. Even worse, the Americans have no artillery with which to defend themselves against the British navy. But Will's brother, Henry, devises a daring plan: They will trek acros three hundred miles of dangerous mountain wilderness to bring 183 cannons from Fort Ticonderoga back to Boston. General Washington's officers say the journey is impossible. But as rumors of a British offensive fly, Will and Henry spur on the men who have bravely joined them, hoping to arrive in Boston in time to win the battle for the Americans.
