9781439226124: Eli and the Rifle

A thirteen-year-old mountain boy must fight for his life and protect his mother in the strong coming-of-age novel, Eli and the Rifle by Sarah Hewes. Set in the 1930s in the rural Cumberland Mountains in Tennessee, Eli and the Rifle is based on the author’s childhood memories of the area, and the summers she spent with her grandparents. Times are tough, and young Eli’s father has gone to look for work, leaving Eli to protect his mother and the Kentucky rifle Eli’s father reveres. But when a sinister stranger named Luce shows up, demanding the rifle, Eli must muster all his courage to fight back and keep his family safe. Written in Appalachian dialect, Eli and the Rifle is a beautifully told story that both adults and young adults will treasure.
