A Canadian Children's Book Centre Our Choice Favourites selection for 2005

Set in the Niagara Peninsula and based on actual events during the War of 1812, Robert Sutherland's Son of the Hounds is a fast-paced adventure story that examines two very different faces of freedom at a turbulent time in the history of Canada and the United States.

It is the story of the Cameron family, and the freedom they enjoy while carving out a new life and future in the Canadian wilderness.

In the aftermath of the battles at Queenston Heights, Lundy's Lane, Stoney Creek and Chrysler's Farm, it is the story of Yankee soldiers from across the border, fired with their own independence, and intent on freeing their Canadian neighbours from British rule.

Finally, it is the story of one young man's bravery in the face of danger, his capture by invading soldiers, his dramatic escape, and his realization that the fight for freedom is based not on his skills with a gun but in not losing faith in his beliefs
