Product Details

Meet the Author

Carolyn Schriber received her PhD in History from the University of Colorado, where she worked in two very different fields: medieval Europe and 19th-century America. She enjoyed a successful career as a tenured professor at Rhodes College, specializing in medieval history and publishing extensively on relationships between Anglo-Norman bishops and kings in the twelfth century. She also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies (ORB), an early and extremely successful  approach to harnessing the resources of the internet to facilitate historical research.After she retired to Professor Emerita status, she turned her attention to her second love, the history of America's Civil War. In 2007 Dr. Schriber published an ambitious study of the Battle of Secessionville, the first re-examination of the impact of that battle in over a decade. She offered a fresh perspective and a valuable new approach to some of the issues concerning the American Civil War. After extensive research, she successfully blended the personal stories of two opposing soldiers with a detailed account of the battle. With a clear and engaging writing style, A Scratch with the Rebels illuminated the depth and diversity of perspectives from both sides of the conflict. It is an absorbing history for Civil War buffs and historians, as well as a general audience. Now she has written a historical novel that covers the same period. Beyond All Price tells the story of Nellie Chase Leath, who served as matron and nurse in  the Roundhead Regiment from Pennsylvania.Dr. Schriber lives near Memphis, Tennessee, with her husband Floyd Schriber and four opinionated cats. She is also active in Lions Clubs International and serves on the board of the Mid-South Lions Sight and Hearing Service, a charitable organization that provides free eye and hearing care to those in need.

    I would read again!

    I am a Southern girl, so this is the first book I have ever read of the Civil War that was from the North's point of view. I really liked it and had a hard time putting it down.
