A Story of CourageBook - 2001
Laura Secord never thought of herself as brave. She was gentle, shy and soft spoken. Janet Lunn tells her compelling story that proves that Laura was much braver than she ever imagined. In 1813 American officers take over the Secord home, demanding food. Laura heard them boasting about a plan that would give them an easy victory over British Lieutenant FitzGibbon. It fell to gentle Laura to make the gruelling trip that would alert him of impending danger. Laura Secord is a feel-good tale of old that celebrates a young girl's bravery in the face of danger.
