In this tale of mystery, adventure, and the civilian Civil War experience, Richard Peck has spun a breathtaking portrait of the lifelong impact that one person can have on another. This is a novel of countless riches.
"This unusual Civil War novel really boosts Peck's credentials as America's best living author for young adults." (The Washington Post)

Love Peck's way of writing about history!
What made the experience of listening to The River Between Us the most enjoyable?
The story is great. I am looking forward to teaching this book to my 8th graders.
What other book might you compare The River Between Us to and why?
Like Peck's "Fair Weather," I love how he takes his characters to historically accurate entertainment venues. In "FW," we visited the Chicago World's Fair and a Wild West. In this story, we learn about actual Show Boats of the era. I plan to try singing "Old Man River" to my soon-to-be embarrassed 8th graders when we come to the Show Boat part.
