by Mary Morton Cowan

War rages in Europe in 1917, but eleven-year-old Nathan learns that enemy spies lurk in New Hampshire, where he lives in his family’s lumber camp—and they intend to burn these woods!

Convinced that Pa’s new German teamster is a spy, Nathan and his friend Orey desperately try to thwart his plan and save the lumber camp. Will they succeed?


Mary Morton Cowan loves the woods. She is a Maine native and has lived in Maine most of her life. In addition to four traditionally published books for young readers, she has had nearly one hundred articles, stories, plays, and activities published in children’s magazines and has received several awards for her work. She and her husband live in Cumberland.
