Captured and enslaved by the Seneca, Carleton is stripped of everything but his faith in God. At last rescued by the Shawnee, he is taken into deep Ohio Territory and adopted as the warrior White Eagle. When he rises to become war chief, he is drawn unwillingly into a bitter war against the white settlers who threaten to overrun the Shawnee’s ancestral lands.

Brigadier General Jonathan Carleton has pledged his allegiance to the cause of liberty, his service to General George Washington, and his heart to fiery Elizabeth Howard. But when Washington takes...

"J. M. Hochstetler strikes again! Native Son picks up where Daughter of Liberty left off and doesn’t let go of the reader even beyond the last word on the last page. Ms. Hochstetler has crafted a story full of intrigue, romance, and heart-racing action, all woven around the most accurately portrayed historical events and settings this reader has ever seen. Her characters—main and secondary—come alive on the page and stay with the reader long after the book is over. The spiritual conflict is both touching and challenging. J. M. Hochstetler is a skilled author whose style engages and allows the reader to get lost in 1775...and makes me want to beg for more! I can’t wait to read the next installment." —Kaye Dacus, author of The Ransome Trilogy

"Joan Hochstetler has done it again. Native Son, a sequel to Daughter of Liberty, is a great historical novel and sets forth events occurring at the outset of the War of the Revolution. . .

I accidentally hit this button the other day when requesting another book.
I have read this one before and it was/is very good.
I was lost within this story as soon as I opened it's pages. Lots going on and the scenery was described so well that I could picture it and feel like I was with the characters in this story.
This author has done very well and her research is explicit.
I didn't want the story to end.

This was such a strong sequel to the American Patriot series. It had what I had enjoyed from the first book, and the characters were still just as good but more developed than this one. It have the same element of tension and using that to it's advantage. I enjoyed getting to go on this read because it was like the authors view of the birth of a nation. I thought it was pretty accurate to historical setting, and I never felt like the characters didn't belong in the story. JM Hochstetler wrote a great story with this one and the first book and left me wanting more.
