I purchased this book for my eight year old grandson who is in the third grade. He read it and sent me a required book report that I requested. He came away understanding that there was a lot of hate generated from the Civil War that still has not healed. He liked the book, but it was not the normal comic books he normally reads.

What a great story. As a lover of American historical novels and history, ( and I am Australian ) I found it very interesting. Many people still today resent the Civil War and what it did to the people and the country. Books like this help to express the feelings of the people involved and the hardships they faced for both sides.

Very good story and background about how sometimes families were split during the Civil War.

Chris Brabson is an eleven year old boy who hates the "Yanks" that are moving into his area around his mountain Tennessee home. He is from a loving family that deal kindly to the Northern soldiers who take their food and even their old mule. He idolizes a shiftless older man who influences Chris to try to become a strong Confederate supporter and leads him into dangerous situations. When Chris learns his older brother is joining the Northern Army, he is devastated and feels he is betrayed by his brother and family. As conflict between the Brabson's neighbors escalate, Chris, encouraged by his sneaky friend is encouraged to stand up to the Yankee soldiers to prove he is a true Confederate. When Chris sees a huge wagon team of supplies heading towards Chattanooga, he tells his friend who pretends to be a spy, to alert the Confederate Army hoping every man will be killed. Then he discovers his brother, Jethro has been assigned as a driver in a wagon team to haul supplies. Chris rushes to the Yankee campground in search of his brother. But instead of an hated enemy, he realizes the soldiers and drivers are mostly nice people. Before the next day is over, Chris is caught on the battlefield and discovers the true horror of war. This event is a coming of age story the will change his live forever.
