William Hackett, a youth with a troubled past, is in for the adventure of his life. Along with his family, friends, and neighbors, he is a part of a group of pioneers trying to start a new life in the wilderness of Kentucky in the 1770's. Aside from dealing with his deep emotional wounds, Will and his friends are confronted with a life of constant trial, hardship, and peril as they seek to survive the dangers of the Kentucky wilds, as well as the threat of savage enemy warriors. While the fierce War for Independence is being waged back East, treacherous British agents stir the Indian tribes to rise up and annihilate the small outpost of unsuspecting pioneers. God has put William in a unique position to help, but what can he do against a thousand bloodthirsty fighters? Full of adventure and excitement, this story demonstrates God's faithfulness to us, whether the battles we face are against physical enemies or spiritual ones. Probing discussion questions in the appendix equip parents and teachers to challenge readers with life-changing character and spiritual lessons found in the story.

Review quote

*The first book in The Flintlock Saga series, The Young Frontiersman, is a captivating story filled with loads of action, adventure, and just enough danger to keep you on the edge of your seat! I am reading this aloud to our four kids ages 4-15 and they ALL beg for "one more chapter!" Set in Kentucky in the 1700s, this story touches on the trials and triumphs of settlers as they move Westward to settle new land. What we love most about this story, is how with every trial/triumph, some characters are mindful to seek the Lord's help/give Him all the glory, encouraging those around them to draw nearer to the Lord and place their trust in Him. It is refreshing to have a series that exemplifies the importance of godly character qualities and has deep spiritual lessons throughout. The included chapter discussion questions have been fabulous for engaging our kids in deep, meaningful discussion about the actions and qualities of different characters. The author takes this opportunity to point us back to Jesus and the godly character He maintained. Who says being a Child of God has to be quiet and boring? Quite the contrary! Action, adventure, and danger coupled with godly character building and deep spiritual lessons...what are you waiting for? - Erin N. Homeschool mother of four

Alan Harris's book The Young Frontiersman is an exciting pioneer adventure book. It reminds me of Little House on the Prairie and My Side of the Mountain, in the style of Harris's original series Tales of Larkin.
