The Courage of Sarah Noble

The Courage of Sarah Noble

by Alice Dalgliesh Illustrated by Leonard Weisgard
When Sarah Noble was eight years old she had her great adventure — going with her father into the wilds of Connecticut to cook for him while he built a house.

There were Indians — would they be friendly There were many times when Sarah had to say to herself, as her mother had said when she left home, "Keep up your courage, Sarah Noble. Keep up your courage."

This charming story is true. Tales of faith and courage and friendship are told over and over again and so kept alive. Here Sarah's adventure is told simply, with feeling and without unnecessary detail.
