The story opens with young Harrison's rousing rescue of sister Sally from drowning when he was just seven, followed soon after by an account of Harrison's quick thinking as he saved his uncle from bleeding to death following an accident. The famous battle at Tippecanoe is also reviewed, as are many more events and actions that young history buffs will enjoy.
