Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Johnny promised his father, wounded while fighting for the South, that he would take care of the family and not run off to fight. When there's a request to take his mules and wagon on a bold mission to supply the Rebel troops, Johnny can't resist. Then he's captured by Cush, a runaway slave. Johnny doesn't like taking orders from a black, but he has no choice. He's heading for prison camp wondering what will become of his family and himself.

Review:

"It's the large canvas that will draw readers to the story, especially the facts about the battles in all their confusion and terror, though there is also some sense of the Southern kid who's not at all sure what he's fighting for. And no easy comfort is offered; whatever the outcome of the war, Cush and Johnny know that racism is still a bitter reality." Booklist
