The Rifle Kindle Edition
From the Inside Flap
Strangely, in all the time of the rifle after John Byam's death and through all the people who looked at it and held it to their shoulder, not once in the life of the rifle did anybody ever think to see if it was loaded.
The rifle was loaded. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Publisher
--Publishers Weekly, Starred
"[An] engagingly written story of one rifle and its fatal impact on one modern boy."
--School Library Journal
"Paulsen's message is clear and cutting: a machine made for killing, no matter how lovingly crafted and benignly kept, remains a machine made for killing."
--Booklist "Paulsen is at the peak of his powers in a book that is as shattering as the awful events it depicts. Unforgettable." --Kirkus Reviews, Pointer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
