This masterful telling of how a group of farmers banded together to secure the land that that been promised them for several generations is a little told story about New York State history. I was thoroughly captivated by Thomas Locker's superb illustrations.
Hannah is the narrator and central figure of this story. She is the daughter of a farmer and lives in a mostly male household. She has a chance to show her mettle when she sounds the horn and helps the farmers, who fight at night in disguise to secure the land that is rightfully theirs.
At the end of the story, Hannah is rewarded with a beautiful blue calico dress.
Hannah is absolutely adorable and has a lot of savvy. She's a very appealing character and her bravery has helped girls to feel better about themselves and their abilities. She is truly a literary gem. Thomas Locker's illustrations are masterpieces in and of themselves. This book should be back in print because it is such a gem.
