Three rebellious siblings walk up into the lawless Republic of Vermont in 1782 in search of their captive father—and driving a stubborn cow.

"Growing up in wartime is never easy…  The journey through unsettled wilderness filled with threats of catamounts, bears, wolves and Tories makes an exciting background for family rivalry, secrets, and loyalty.  Unforgettable!" Ida H. Washington, co-author of Carleton's Raid

Told with humor and rebellion through the eyes of a 13-year-old girl, Walking into the Wild is also the story of the resilience of early settlers and of a young girl's coming to terms with her conscience, her imperfections, her budding sexuality, and her understanding of human differences.

"The book is a good introduction to middle schoolers interested in the Revolutionary War." Historical Novels Review

"Finely drawn, sensitively portrayed characters make this historical novel a standout!" Nancy Wallace, author, youth services librarian, Voya reviewer

In part a family legend, it was written with the help of a grant from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators.

Originally published by LLDreamspell. New edition of the middle grade novel is an imprint of, Wildcat Books, for the children's book publisher: Prince and Pauper Press.
