The book, the Perilous Road, is about a boy who hates Yankees. Chris Brabson is a Yankee hater, like everyone else in his town. Except for his family. Chris is desperate to do anything to hurt the Yankees. One day, him and Silas try to ambush a group of Yankee soldiers passing by the road. The Yankees spot him and chase after him. He loses them in a bluff, and gets stuck. Jethro, his older brother, rescues him, and tells him he joined the Yankee army. Chris is bad, but it blows over. Later, he goes to a Yankee base, and tries to release all the mules. While he is shot at, he is joined by Silas and they release the horses. Later, as he passes by a Yankee wagon train, he tells Silas, who claims he will tell the Confederate general. After, Chris has second thoughts. Jethro was supposed to be a wagon driver. In a desperate attempt to save him, Chris goes to the wagon train and asks around. It becomes night, and Chris stays with the soldiers. He wakes up to the Confederates blowing up the wagons. He runs, and learns that war and killing are bad. This book was good, but was also lacking something. This book shows how a character can drastically change.
