secret of devil lake sutherl and robert

Gavin is in Scotland to hike across the moors, and Fiona' s dad isn' t about to let a broken leg stop the kids' fun. He knows in his heart that his father, Lieutenant James Martin, could not have stolen the money stored overnight in the blockhouse of The Isthmus and then brutally murdered his commanding officer, Colonel Forrester. Not only is this far more freedom than a middle-class girl would be allowed in the 1840s, it is far more than even the spunkiest girl of the times would be likely to take. The spine usually faces outward when a book is placed on a shelf. But the jury has been swayed by damning circumstantial evidence. One of them, Sapper Tom, apparently hid the loot before he drowned in Devil Lake close by Westport. Anyone who likes books about adventure and exitment should Try The Adventures of Tommy Smith by Robert Sutherland, the author of The Secret of Devil Lake and many other great books as well.

Tight binding, square uncreased spine, glossy covers, clean pages. Now it's up to 14-year-old Will to find the real murderer and stop the hangman's noose. Only one slim clue guides him: the colonel's missing pet parrot, whose strange and eerie mutterings may hold the key to James Martin's life. Dixon has nothing on Robert Sutherland! As I rooted for the young man's attempts to enlist allies in his quest I was transported back to times when I rooted similarly for Frank and Joe Hardy, the heroes of my pre-teen years.

He knows in his heart that his father, Lieutenant James Martin, could not have stolen the money stored overnight in the blockhouse of The Isthmus and then brutally murdered his commanding officer, Colonel Forrester. Although details of daily life in 1845 are well researched and presented, the relationships among the teenaged characters have rather too contemporary a ring: Tod seems to have no chores to do, and Tabitha spends the night in the woods with the boys. Will Martin can't believe that his father is guilty and sentenced to hang from the gallows in less than two weeks. Sutherland heroes always have two things going for them: incredible energy and incredible luck. Or is it a warning to Gavin and his Scottish cousin, Fiona, to turn back? Usually used in reference to a book's boards or dust-jacket. Set in the Newboro area, vicinity of today's Frontenac Provincial Park, Ontario, in the second quarter of the 19th century.

But the jury has been swayed by damning circu Will Martin can't believe that his father is guilty and sentenced to hang from the gallows in less than two weeks. The plot was well developed and the action moved quickly. Lawrence River from Ogdensburg, home of his best friends, Jared and Leah Jackson, and their father, an American war-hawk lawyer. A little soiling to textblock edges, rubbing to corner tips and former owner's name facing inside front cover; otherwise looks scarcely used. The Rebellion of 1837 and the building of the Rideau Canal are mentioned as important events in the near past; however, neither has any bearing on the outcome of the plot. She wrestles to save them from death and from facing each other across a battlefield.

Will heads there, hoping to find one of the remaining two attempting to recover the loot.
