I read this as a teenager and fell in love with the character of Drew Rennie. Now I read it 50 years later and found it even better. Andre Norton did some impressive historical research to get the details so accurate. After rereading this book I read Dee Brown's history of General John Hunt Morgan's raiders and actually found some of the identical dialogue, recorded in journals written at the time. The incident where Drew's horse, Shawnee, is shot in the neck and still managed carry his rider through a pond before collapsing and dieing actually happened to a real trooper, Carl Sager, at the rout from the battle of Cynthiana. Read this book then go listen to some period Civil War music by the "Second South Carolina String Ba Nd".

A wonderful civil war story from the amazing Norton, more known for her sci-fi. I found this highly enjoyable.
