Publisher's Summary

In this wonderfully crafted novel, a rifle, not the people who come to own it, is the main character. This story follows the rifle from its creation in 1768 to a shattering event as it roars back to life in 1994. Gary Paulsen is one of the most popular writers of young adult fiction in America today.

Don't waste your time

Started out good but ending was surreal. Still not sure what point it made. Was willing to overlook some technical errors about historical armsmaking but then the crazy train went off the rails. Author obviously has some deep rooted hatred towards NRA members.

Love the ending.

Read it as a child. Still holds up today. The ending I think is why I like this story so much.
