Book Description:

At age14, David Ogden narrowly escaped the Iroquois's notorious Cherry Valley Massacre by crawling through a small firewood passageway and slipping away. As an adult, he survived the brutal Battle of Queenston Heights, in which 500 of his comrades died. But Ogden was more than just lucky—he was also extremely resourceful, tough, and determined.
