    Civil War or African-American Fiction Collectors Take Note...

    It is ironic that only two reviews of this book are listed here. This is an easily read book, and one which puts African Americans in perspecting during the Civil War. It demonstrated the mental and physical strengths and struggles of African Americans at a pivotal time in history. Joe Duckett, an escaped slave, was very resourceful and a thoughtful strategist.

    Historic, Dramatic, Engaging, Interesting

    This book should appeal to many types of readers. Whether you enjoy reading fiction, action novels, history, Literature, African American Literature, or love stories, there will be something in this book that you will be drawn too. Where I'm bound is a compelling story that will make you laugh, make you think, take your breath away with suspense, and offer an acurrate historical account of life in the Missisippi Delta during the Civil War. The storyline is terriffic, and will keep you coming back. The story twists and turns in directions that are interesting and as unpredictable as life in the war torn south during the early 1860's. Yet, the story is logical and reflects historical accuracy. It's about personal conviction, family, war, love, hatred, betrayal, and even a little lust. The characters are developed fully and are complex in the way that real people are. This book will disclose the thoughts, emotions, and other sentiments of free-thinking African American Patriots who took to arms for their freedom, strong African American women who against all odds went on the run in search of freedom, Union soldiers bound by duty, and Confedrate soldiers and civilians whose way of life and beliefs were under attack. In short, a good storyline always makes for interesting reading, and this book has a very strong storyline. Think Gone With The Wind from an African American perspective

    Outstanding

    This book was very exciting from beginning to end. I could not put the book down. It was so good. The story centers around this soldier in an African American Union Civil War Unit from the south. The historical content of the book was very enlightening. The author did an excellent job of combining history, suspense and romance. The writing was so vivid, it made my heart race.
