This is a study guide for the book titled Abandoned on the Wild Frontier, by Dave & Neta Jackson. In this book, a friendship with Peter Cartwright (a Methodist circuit-riding evangelist) enables 13-year-old Gil to pursue his dream of locating his mother who was kidnaped by the Sauk Indians during the War of 1812.
There are 40 books in the TRAILBLAZER series. Each book focuses on the life of a Christian hero or a missionary. The books are classified as historical fiction because one or more fictional young people are included, but the information about the hero/missionary is true -- and there is a biographical section at the end of each book. The stories are suspenseful and engaging -- and readers learn about many Christian heroes and missionaries.
Abandoned on the Wild Frontier is set in the U.S. from 1812-1820; Peter Cartwright is the Christian hero.
Each section of this guide contains vocabulary exercises, questions for discussion, and a reading activity. Extension activities and an answer key are also included.
