Overview

In 1707, young Sarah Noble and her father traveled through the wilderness to build a new for their family. "Keep up your courage, sarah Noble," her mother had said, but Sarah found that it was not always easy to feel brave inside. The dark woods were full of animals and Indians, too, and Sarah was only eight!


The true story of Sarah's journey is inspiring. And as she cares for her father and befriends her Indian neighbors, she learns that to be afraid and to be brave is the greatest courage of all.

An eight-year-old girl finds courage to go alone with her father to build a new home in the Connecticut wilderness, and to stay with the Indians when her father goes back to bring the rest of the family.

Read an Excerpt

The Indian children did come, again and again. Sarah soon lost all fear of them, and they of her. At first the children all looked alike to Sarah, then she began to know each one. Two of them she liked better than all the others. They were brother and sister, a tall serious boy and a little girl with lively black eyes.

Sometimes Sarah tried to read to them but after the first time they did not listen. So Sarah tried teaching them words. Pointing to the table, stool, fire, she would say the name slowly and clearly. Then the Indian children said-or tried to say-the words, shouting with laughter when their tongues could not find a way around the strange sounds.

They, in turn, showed her where the wild strawberries grew. So she went out and filled a basket with the berries, which were like red jewels in the grass. when John Noble came home with a duck he had shot, or a fish caught in the river, he would find ripe berries waiting, too.

They traded with the Indians for corn, and ground it with the small mortar and pestle thomas had brought in one of the saddle bags. Sarah made corn cakes with it, cooking them in the ashes, and all the time she thought of her mother's good bread, baked in the oven. If she had an oven...

"I need help to raise the logs for the house," John Noble said. "There is a tall Indian who has said he will help me. I cannot say his name so I will call him Tall John. He speaks a few words of English."

"Father," Sarah said, "the Indian children point to their houses and want me to visit them. Should I go?"

John Noble did not answer at once. He sat with his head in his hands saying not a word. This was his daughter, and he had brought her to this wild place. Often and often he had wondered if he had done right. And what, after all, did he know about these strange people?

Sarah waited for her father to speak.

At last he said, "Tall John has two children, Sarah. I think they are among those who come here. I would trust you to go to the house of Tall John."

"Oh!" said Sarah. "It is Tall John's children that I like!"

So Sarah went often to the house of Tall John and his wife. she could not say the long, long names of the children, so she called the boy Small John and the girl Mary, after her mother.

The Indian children called her Sarah, for that was a name easy to say.

"Sar-ah, Sar-ah, Sar-ah!" Their high, clear voices echoed up and down the valley as she played with them and learned their games.

"Sar-ah, Sar-ah!"

    Have you ever been asked to take on more responsibility than someone your age should have to take?

    The Courage Of Sarah Noble is a true account of a little girl who actually lived in the early 1700's. Eight year old Sarah goes on a journey with her father from Massachusetts to the then wilderness country of Connecticut. Her father is going to build the family a new home there. Sarah is going along to cook for her father. Sarah encounters many new and sometimes frightening situations. During this time she always remembered her mothers advice to ¿Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble.' Sarah and her father live in a cave while he builds the family a new house. She stays in the cave alone in his absence. Sarah makes friends with the Indian children. When the house is completed Sarah¿s father must go and get the rest of the family. He tells Sarah that she must stay with the Indians while he is gone. She is frightened at the prospect. However, the story concludes happily and in the end Sarah realizes that she has great courage.

    Ashley 3By My favorite character in this book is Sarah Noble because Sarah went on a trip with her father .When her father went back to get her whole family, she stayed with the indians. Sarah is kind.

    a really great book

    Alice Dalgliesh lived from 1893 to 1979. Born in Trinidad, West Indies, she came to the United States where she was an editor and an author of more than forty books for and about children. Several years ago, my wife checked out her Bears on Hemlock Mountain from the library and I read it aloud to our older son Mark. I really enjoyed it and wanted to read The Courage of Sarah Noble too, but it took a few years. While looking in a bookstore at children's books for our younger son Jeremy's birthday some years later, I came across copies of both books and bought them for him.
    The Courage of Sarah Noble, which was a Newbery Honor Book, is based on a true story that occurred in 1707, although the author says, "I have had to imagine many of the details." In it, an eight year old girl named Sarah Noble finds courage to go alone with her father from their old home in Massachusetts to help build a new home in the Connecticut wilderness and then to stay with the Indians when her father goes back to bring the rest of the family. Alice Dalgliesh was a wonderful story teller, and this is a really great book. It depicts not only courage, but also love of family and respect for those who are different.

    A most read for all little girls!!!

    This was a gift for my special little friend who is finally realizing her reading potential after finally having a teacher who understands her form of dyslexia and was able to "break through to her" thought and visual process and help her to make sense of the words and their order. Kudos to special teachers who take the time to really understand their students!!
