Cannon of Courage – coming soon
As the winter of 1775 approaches, the British have taken up residence in Boston. The fledgling Continental Army appears to be powerless to drive the redcoats back to England. Young Gabriel Cooper, a new aide-de-camp to General Washington, is learning the rigors of army life at the Cambridge encampment, when he is called upon to journey with Henry Knox to retrieve Ticonderoga’s cannon. A daring trek across across hundreds of miles of wilderness in the dead of winter to retrieve the one thing that can drive the despised British from Boston. Gabriel’s adventure with Henry Knox and their attempt to accomplish the impossible leads to untold challenges: Bears, Indians, and Ice. Will Gabriel survive?
