Joe-A prankster and brave to the point of being reckless. He was strong for a 13 year old, and also wise in some ways. Peter-Born free in Pennsylvania, never having been a slave, is educated and religious. He prefers to avoid conflict unlike Joe who seems to cause it and is more of a sensitive lad at The two compliment each other well and their bond of friendship grows stronger every day as their journey progresses. The ending was a bit sad, but still leaves off on a high note, and a laugh. I wish the book was longer, wish we could see what becomes of Joe and Peter after the war ends.
This is not a spoiler since we all know it ends IMO :P. There are religious tones, but it is not preachy. Thus the tags for christian and religious.

I really loved this story. I suppose since I spent alot of my life visiting the south particularly Virgina and the Shenandoah Valley area I am a little biased. I loved the descriptions of the scenery not overdone and I felt like I was truly there. This book is written with great historical accuracy.
This includes the dialogue. The author states in his Forward to not be insulted by some of the language, for he is certainly NOT a racist, but in keeping with the time period, words that are not appropriate today are used. The book was written in a way that did not favor North or South but simply showed that both sides were just as bad as the other. The author also goes into a little bit of history like how the war was not really about slavery but cotton, etc..
The pace was perfect for me, clearly a character driven book with some conflicts and a few realistic battle scenes. Overall I am glad to have found a new fave author. I would recommend this to friends who like historical fiction and comming of age tales. I plan to read more of this authors work. One mention of a couple having sex Joe caught them in the act by accident , but it was not detailed or described.
Mild cursing. No rape. Romance peeps: view spoiler [Peter falls in love with Zuey but has to leave her for a time, and decides to go back to her in the end. Joe fancies a girl or two but he's only 13 and nothing comes of it.
No issues, no triggers no OW, no cheating not a romance driven book hide spoiler ] View all 9 comments. Jan 21, Cortney rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-reads. I won this book from a goodreads. The triumph and terror these young boys faced during the civil war is unimaginable.

I found myself cheering them on, almost crying for them. My heart broke, I laughed out loud and I was filled with anger and rage throughout the story. Not too many books can have people go through all those emotions and back again, but this one did. It was a great story of survival, the best of friends b I won this book from a goodreads. It was a great story of survival, the best of friends beating the odds together and growing into young men, proud young men.
It reaffirms the fact that race is only skin deep and underneath, the blood still runs red in everyone. No matter what side you are on, we all still want the same goal Kudos to these characters for never giving up on their dreams. Amazing story. So glad I was lucky enough to read it.

This is a good book about two boys one a mischievous white boy and the other one a black boy who feels a duty to watch over the white boy journey by foot across the war ravaged Southern states during the Civil War.
The reason for their journey is that the white boy has been staying with an uncle in Arkansas and is desparate to go back home to Virginia to be with his father who is a confederate soldier. The war has left a path of destruction and deprivation on both the land and the people that This is a good book about two boys one a mischievous white boy and the other one a black boy who feels a duty to watch over the white boy journey by foot across the war ravaged Southern states during the Civil War.
The war has left a path of destruction and deprivation on both the land and the people that they meet along the way. The author provides a good study about how some people turn ugly as a result of their experiences and some people remain strong and compassionate. Of course, the trip has an impact on both boys as well and they are also changed by the things that happen to them.

Aug 11, Melody Burgess-bodnar rated it it was amazing. The relationship between Joe and Peter was endearing and the way they each felt they were needed by the other was moving. The author did a good job of depicting the horrors of war and the treatment of slaves. I can't help but hope there is a sequel coming.

In this well-researched historical novel, you will see how the terrible Civil War affected the folks on the home front, too. The story is Civil War fiction. This history is real. The Civil War South in is desperate and dangerous.
