Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In the year 1773, Mack and her thirteen-year-old cousin, Jamie dread the thought of returning from Canada to their ancestral home in Great Britain. Their worries are replaced by fresh ones, however, when the cousins are kidnapped by a ruffian named Ben Sparks. Sparks is a lawless man who plans to sell Mack and Jamie to Native Americans or the British army. The cousins' guardian, Lord John MacNeil, along with his young Indian friend, Owela, track the young people in hopes of rescuing them. The suspense is short lived, as Mack and Jamie are freed by some friendly strangers. From the wilds of Canada the pair travel to the city of Boston, where they participate in that city's memorable Tea Party. Paul Revere makes a cameo appearance and assists in reuniting the cousins with their guardian. A romance blooms between Mack and Owela, who teaches the young Canadian about the Oneida Indian culture. More adventures with the MacNeil family can be discovered in "The Circle of Silver Chronicles" series. 2001, Stoddart Kids, $7.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Christopher Moning
