Two novels of true blue American heroines

The idea of the 'female warrior' in fiction once had great commercial appeal and these two novels of the American Civil War-which have been brought together for added value in this Leonaur edition-are fine examples of the genre. The intrepid young ladies of these stories are, in fact, fervent supporters of the cause of the Union. Their tales of courage and daring-including the concealing of the 'fair sex' in uniform, so that they can pass as fighting soldiers-tell of bold exploits and great deeds of audacious espionage behind enemy lines in the guise of loyal Confederates. In reality there have been few wars where formidable and determined women have failed to join the campaign and battle line. The American Civil War was no exception and there are notable examples of real life reflecting these exciting fictional exploits on both sides of the conflict.

Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
