Nathan Hale: Patriot Spy

Sending request ...

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This introductory biography relates Hale's story from the time of his education at Yale to his work as a spy for General Washington and ultimate execution during the American Revolution. The author includes little-known facts such as Hale, the teacher, offering early morning classes to girls at a time when only boys, for the most part, received formal education. After noting the colonial idea of spies as cheats and liars, readers are told of Hale's high degree of patriotism: "-if spying would help his country, it was honorable to him." The numerous oil paintings are mostly appropriate, but in the one that is intended to depict Hale as a 14-year-old boy, he looks like an older man. While not an essential purchase, this title will be useful in libraries in which biographies for beginning readers are needed.-Suzanne Crowder, Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives, Frankfort, KY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    A History Spy

    I love this book and I recommend it to you because he helped by doing a good trick and because he stepped up to a dangerous thing when no one would. And he told the troops when he was captured and I think he was a brave man.
