A Ride into Morning: The Story of Tempe Wick
A stone's throw from the restless camp, Tempe Wick wages her own battle for survival. Despite her efforts, she fears she won't be able to feed her family, care for her ailing mother, or maintain her farm for long.
As the whispers get louder, the soldiers get bolder. Mutiny is imminent. And Tempe faces a gut-wrenching decision: Should she join the revolt?
Ann Rinaldi's dramatic story is based on the legend of America's Tempe Wick.
When I read the back of this book I thought oh great a history book. However, I needed to read a book for English and this was my only choice. As I began reading A Ride Into Morning I got really excited about it. It was really cool to learn about peoples lives that were changed to fit the book.
In addition to being an overall great book it was very helpful in doing my report because it gives biographys at end for an afterstory. I would difinetly suggest you to read this book. For any age at least thirteen and you will love this book!
I personally thought this was a great book! I love reading Ann Rinaldi's books! Before I started to read her books, I thought the idea of reading History (even if it is partially fictious) out of History class would be the dumbest thing ever. But now I love reading historical fiction! I also reccommend to everyone almost all of Ms. Rinaldi's books, but I really liked Hang a thousand trees with ribbon: the story of Phillis Weatley. It was great!
