Children of the New Forest: 3: Alone
by Captain Marryat.
Adapted by Tom Twigge.
Under the guidance of Jacob Armitage, his 'grandchildren' settle into their new life as forest children-all but Edward the eldest, who longs to avenge the burning of Arnwood. After a brush with the Roundhead Intendant of the Forest, Mr. Heatherstone, Edward saves the life of Patience Heatherstone, his daughter. Jacob dies, and the children are left to fend for themselves.
