Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A rollicking story of imprisonment and escape…Carlson has taken full advantage of abundant material to deliver a vivid chronicle of two working Civil War reporters and their spectacular odyssey.” Kirkus Reviews
“History as it really happened, not the tidy school book version, and Peter Carlson tells it with the drive and verve of a truly gifted narrator.” David Von Drehle, author of Rise to Greatness
“Civil War buffs and historians of journalism will revel in this thrilling tale of two raucous, self-described ‘knights of the quill.’” Publishers Weekly
“Grave, propulsive, heroic, and, not least, slyly comic…This is a lost tale resurrected by a fine old newspaperman himself—and our hearts are better for it.” Paul Hendrickson, author of Hemingway’s Boat
“Peter Carlson is one of America’s greatest storytellers, and this is his best story yet. Funny, thrilling, tragic, and impossible to put down, . . . A beautifully written, wondrous book.” David Finkel, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Good Soldiers
“Another irresistible story, engagingly told, from the pen of irresistible and engaging storyteller Peter Carlson. As with the best of non-fiction, it reads like a far-fetched novel.” Christopher Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking
“This absorbing story of two Northern war reporters who were captured by the Confederates at Vicksburg, imprisoned for nineteen months, and escaped two hundred miles to Union lines demonstrates that for the Civil War, truth is indeed more thrilling than fiction.” James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Battle Cry of Freedom
