Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A strong, affecting picture of the Civil War era, of the grueling work and privations of the home front as well the chaos and carnage of the battlefield.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Alston Brown becomes Johnny in this poignant first-person account of the Civil War from a Southern perspective. He also excels at creating Yankee and African-American accents as well as the speech patterns of the day.” AudioFile
“A vivid portrayal of the Civil War…Richly drawn…Authentic battle scenes add spice to the story.” School Library Journal
“The text offers controversial viewpoints without intrusive moralizing. A fine supplement for textbooks on the Civil War, capable of provoking exciting discussions and insights.” Kirkus Reviews
