KIRKUS REVIEW

Andre Norton- in a new role- weaves a substantial and dramatic narrative with the Civil War as its focus. Drew Rennie was a rebel in political allegiance and in spirit alike. The outbreak of the war climaxed the feud between himself and his grandfather who resented his very existence because of his Texan father. In hurt and anger Drew joins Morgan's Raiders and despite Morgan's defeat at Cynthiana, he continues the arduous trek with his friends, Anse and Boyd, to join Forrest's troops. Harassed by dwindling supplies, poor weapons and Union soldiers they reach their destination only to retreat further with the southern forces to a final surrender. The army is vanquished, but its pride is not. Knowing how the years have rendered a return to his former life impossible, Drew sets out for the West, perhaps to find his father, surely to find a new and fresh life. A moving and suspenseful tale which carries a conviction of reality.
