COURAGE WINS

A pioneer story almost as long as the trek itself, from Connecticut to Ohio's Western Reserve tells of the Cobb family and their trials in 1812. Centered around 14 year old Otis, it is a play by play account of a journey that included the orthodox hardships plus the threat of war. When they settle in Ohio, Otis father Uriah must go off to the militia, leaving the family to ward off Indians who never come. Rather than plot, this banks on a serious look at frontier life.
