Everyone has heard of Paul Revere's ride, made famous in Longfellow's poem. But how many have heard of Sybil Ludington, a brave young girl who rode longer and farther?

In this true story of bravery and determination, Sybil risks darkness and danger to help the Revolutionary War effort. The British are invading, and it is up to her to muster the troops for defense. Karen B. Winnick skillfully captures the hazards of wartime, Sybil's courage, and her spirited colt with a suspenseful account and rich illustrations.
