Chris Brabson hates the Union troops. Yankee riders in the Tennessee mountains have stolen his family's newly harvested crops and their only horse. In spite of this, Chris' brother joins the Union army, and his parents refuse to take either side. But Chris has no doubts--he would fight for the Confederacy. This Newbery Honor book powerfully illustrates the senseless waste of war and the true meaning of courage and tolerance.
