George Rogers Clark: Boy of the Northwest Frontier - Katharine E. Wilkie

Released March 2004

Patria Press

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Learn more about George Rogers Clark, older brother of William Clark of the famed duo Lewis & Clark. In this volume of the Young Patriots Series, children find out about George Clark's childhood and early adult years. They'll find out why he left school, what he opted to learn instead, and what led him to become a famous military man during the Battle of Vincennes.

This entry into the Young Patriots Series is again told with a simple ease that children will enjoy. The stories capture the time and personalities of may famous historical figures. The books are easy for advancing readers, but the inclusion of illustrations by Cathy Morrison will appeal to those children who still enjoy looking at pictures. The novel ends with a timeline of George Rogers Clark: Boy of the Northwest Frontier's life and accomplishments, as well as a glossary of terms.
