STORY OF TEMPE WICK
San Diego : Harcourt Brace
IL 5-8 RL 4.6
Cooper is Tempe Wick's cousin. She has come to live with Tempe's family
because her own has kicked her out for her strong outspokenness in favor
of the American revolution. She's got a crush on General Wayne, a handsome
officer assigned by Washington to oversee the regiment camped on Tempe's
property. Tempe is upset about the poor condition of the soldiers under
Wayne's command and gives Mary a hard time about her devotion to the revolutionary
cause. Things reach a crisis when Mary worries that Tempe will be a traitor
as she is close to allowing mutinous soldiers the use of her prize horse.
The author's note allows readers to compare the actual facts known about
Tempe Wick and the story woven around those facts.
