    In this book we are introduced to Jack Robertson in his youth.

    In this book we are introduced to Jack Robertson in his youth. I am eager to read the following books when he is no longer a boy. Each chapter contained a short story about the main character. This made for easy reading and was a book you could pick up then put down again especially if finding time to read is irregular. I thought it would make for a great bedtime story to read to a child as the chapters were episodic and all ended with a positive moral.
    I’m reminded of the works by Horatio Alger (whose characters have high scruples, good work ethic and are rewarded for their deeds in a rags-to-riches manner) as Jack’s quick thinking, perception and often luck are what save the day.
    There were times when I thought that there’s no way the adults in the room would take Jack seriously enough to go along with his schemes, but then again this is feel good historical-fiction not a thesis on frontier history so I ‘suspended disbelief’ and simply enjoyed a yarn.
    Fans of “Little house on the Prairie” would feel at home with this work.
    I enjoyed this book and soon will start on the second book in the series.
