Editorial Reviews

This classic novel about a Southern soldier and an escaped slave he helps during the Civil War was written during the postbellum period. The style of prose and the vocabulary make the story's main value (above pure entertainment) that of appreciating the history of the novel in America. John Bolen does many accents and voices with pleasant results; however, his women's falsetto voices turn out to be downright hilarious.

Publisher's Summary

In this heroic clash of opposing conviction, Vincent Wingfield, a young spirited teenager and heir to a southern slave plantation, bravely proves his sympathy for brutally treated slaves and becomes a staunch supporter of slaves' rights. But, with the onset of the Civil War, Wingfield's fidelity to the state of Virginia leads him to serve under Robert E. Lee's cavalry and fight for the Confederacy.Through his courage and readiness, he survives hairbreadth escapes, attempts on his life and two imprisonments. Henty provides an intriguing insight into the war's famous battles, the characters of Robert E. Lee and his lieutenants, and the vast complexities of the saddest conflict in the history of the United States.

Outstanding!

Narration is wonderful and dramatic! My son and I found ourselves listening until the early hours. This book is very accurate concerning the history of the Civil War, while telling a wonderful tale filled with suspense and bravery. This one is a winner.

Southerners do not sound like that!

Good story! The narrator does not do southern very well. If you can ignore the Bland and inaccurate and annoying voices of the narrator then you will enjoy this. Bad narration does not bother me. I still enjoy the book so this was not a problem; although I know some people are very distracted by a poor narrator so want to give a fair assessment.
