Praise for Saddles, Stars and Stripes: Chance of a Lifetime

Children's Literature
The perspective of a child from a slave-owning family is not often used in Civil War fiction, making this a unique read. Many moral questions are left for the reader to ponder.

Give these books to readers who are horse crazy...
