A woman, upon learning that Stonewall Jackson has been killed, tells her 14-year-old son to find his father and bring him home from the Civil War. After a perilous journey, the boy finds the man grievously wounded on the bloody fields at Gettysburg. Unforgettable tableaux of devotion, courage, and stark horror. The story is a simple one, but its reverberations are as timeless as the winds. Gripping reading, although this novel is not for the squeamish. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
