The three children are swept down the river, and must make their way back through the wilderness in the direction of the Marietta settlement, hoping to find their father there.

Danger Along the Ohio Reviews

  • Amy

    I teach fourth grade Ohio History, and this book fits in really well with the curriculum. It is fast paced and exciting and appeals to boys as well as girls. My class is reading this right now, and most of the students are really enjoying it.

  • Christiana

    I like to pick and up and read whatever my kiddos are - this one is very suspenseful and a good read! Even my reluctant reader enjoyed it.

  • Amy

    A good story that illustrates how things were in this country back in the late 1700's as people settled farther west in the Ohio country.

  • Ms. Albert

    I finally got hold of this book and read it after several years of my sixth graders recommending it to me. I guess they read it in elementary school and it made an impression on them. It is set in 1793, when most of Ohio is still a wilderness. Amos, Clara, and Jonathan become separated from their father when Indians (They are not called Native Americans in this book, so I will use the word that was used at the time.) attack the village they had just landed in, travelling down the Ohio River with [...]

  • Mimiprice

    This is a kid's book - probably 4th grade. It captures the imagination very quickly and makes you feel as though you are floating down the Ohio River with Indians after you.

  • Courtney Rene

    Very fun and entertaining read. A bit on the violent side for the younger readers but all in all, it was a quick read with lots of action and adventure. As a bonus, the characters were easy to connect too.

  • Sandybear76

    I read this book to get an understanding about canals and boats in Ohio before a Cabin Day event at my school.

  • Krista the Krazy Kataloguer

    Kids get separated from their father as they travel down the river in 1793, and must survive Indian attacks to try to find him.

  • Natalie

    I read this with my 4th Grader. It was cute book and well chosen as a start for her literary circle at school.

  • Hannah Jones at Watts

    I love this book!

  • Katie de Castro

    Review I wrote after I read it: Very nice book--kind of sad at the ending.

  • Monica971

    Great for reading while discussing settlement, statehood, and the Native American wars.

  • Amanda

    This is a great pioneer book for fourth-graders or thereabouts. Sneaks in all kinds of history but tells of westward expansion from the eyes of children on a great adventure.

  • Joseph Haggerty

    This was a very good book if you are looking for a great survival novel.
