The Secret Soldier: The Story of Deborah Sampson
By Ann McGovern, illustrated by Harold Goodwin and Katherine Thompson
How can a penniless 18-year-old girl travel the world seeking adventures in 1778? Deborah assumes a man's identity — "Robert Shurtliff" — and enlists as a soldier in the Revolutionary War. Fighting bravely against the redcoats, her gender secret isn't discovered until she is wounded. Exciting reading for risk-taking kids.
