An Old Man and a Girl
A modern day Lewis and Clark adventure where a Grandfather takes his Granddaughter across the United States learning about history, life lessons, dangers, cultures, and has a surprise ending.
An historical romantic adventure where a boy, Jonathan Mercer, is captured by the Lenni Lenape tribe while delivering messages between the forts along the Allegheny River during the French and Indian War. This story contains love, war, danger, uncertainty, tragedy, loss, and so much more. Jordan really pulls his readers emotionally into this amazing tale.
