With Wolfe in Canada by G. A. Henty
I found this book very engaging - a page turner. The main character James Walsham is a young man of great integrity, born in England. Through a series of circumstances, he ends up in the American Colonies during the French and Indian War. He joins up with the British Army and has many close calls during his service with them against the French, Canadians and their allied native tribes. This book brings life to this period of history and I think would be an adventurous read for any young adult. I plan to have skinny skater read it during his school year as a 9th grade student.
