KIRKUS REVIEW

The campaign against the British in Quebec is hardly news to anyone who enjoys Revolutionary War stories. And this one is somewhat weakened by the fact that much of the action depends on a fictional maneuver that fizzled out before it could take place. The hero is sixteen year old Enoch Robinson, who ran away from his apprenticeship in Boston and joined the Green Mountain Men on their way to Quebec. The portrayals of the battle scenes, of the old French City, and of the ragged American army are vividly drawn. Enoch's personal confusion between the worth of liberty and the undesirability of disorganization and insubordination is resolved in only superficial terms. It is an adequate but not very enlightening story for Revolutionary War enthusiasts.
