Notes

First edition, first printing. Winner of the 1942 Newbery Medal, Walter D, Edmonds's "stirring story of young American courage" (jacket blurb) - as a a family defend their home during the French and Indian Wars - would have resonated with a country recently committing young men to war. Paul Lantz's illustrations are very striking.
