KIRKUS REVIEW

Clay Buckner, a farm boy, joined the Iron Scouts, attached to Jeb Stuart's confederate cavalry. Clay alone could identify Tryon, the clever, reckless, ingenious Yankee spy who had infiltrated the Confederate lines. After Tryon is taken captive, Clay falls into Northern hands. But in an exchange of prisoners, he is traded for Tryon --bringing a satisfactory conclusion and a promise of future happiness with the rebellious Southern girl who could see the Northern side of the Civil War.
