Product Description
Historical fiction: America's ancient city history based on a true event. This adventure was created around historical records from the English 1702 siege of St. Augustine, Florida, America's oldest city. When the English attack the Spanish stronghold of St. Augustine, the townspeople must take refuge inside the fort, the Castillo de San Marcos. This coming-of-age story goes inside a real siege to unveil how a spirit of determination can work against seemingly overwhelming odds.

Book blurb: What is it like to be 13, trapped inside a fort, and surrounded by a superior enemy? Pedro has been told he is too young to fight. But he has skill and a unique knowledge of the land on his side. When the English attack the Castillo de San Marcos fort in the Spanish stronghold of St. Augustine in 1702, he and his friend Miguel are thrown into an adventure of a lifetime. Woods crawling with the enemy, a naval blockade, an escaped pirate with detailed knowledge of the fort, and critically low ammunition are just a few of the challenges ahead. They realize they must sneak behind enemy lines to help or the town will certainly perish.
