The American Victory based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Eight-year-old Paul Lankford's father has been away fighting in the American Revolution for most of Paul's life. Because he has only seen his father a few times in the past six years, Paul barely knows him. So when the war finally ends in 1781 and Paul's father returns home, he has a difficult time adjusting to the change. Paul's father is very strict, and doesn't seem to understand Paul at all. Paul would like to be a shipbuilder, like his Uncle Ethan, but he fears telling his father he doesn't want to follow in his footsteps as a printer. Over the next two years, Paul struggles to form a better relationship with his father and gain the courage to determine his own future. This was probably among my least favorite books in the American Adventure series. It wasn't a bad book, but I found it hard to get interested in, because it didn't really have a strong plot. It also seemed to have more historical details and less story in it than some of the other books in the series. However, I would recommend it to readers who, like me, want to read the entire series.
