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.
