Set in the days of the American Revolution, Gideon is a stirring tale of courage, love, and sacrifice. After the death of his father, Gideon is forced to leave his home in New Hampshire to live with his cruel stepfather in Massachusetts. There, Gideon is apprenticed to a tanner and spends his days cutting leather and his nights patrolling the town for British spies. One night, Gideon Granger stumbles upon a group of British soldiers planning to raid the town. He single-handedly defeats the British forces and is hailed as a hero. Inspired by Gideon's bravery, the people of the town vow to stand up to the British Empire. With the help of Gideon and his friends, the town rallies to victory and drives the British out of Massachusetts.; 8vo; FSA.
