Buck Burnet is a leader, natural-born, and developed by life in Concho County, West Texas. He leads six friends on an odyssey to Richmond to repel what they have heard of as the "Yankee invader." They don't make it to Richmond, but most do make it to Shiloh.

Along the way they learn that the war means different things to different people.

The culture of West Texas is not at all the same as the culture of the Old South.

They are enscripted into the Confederate Army regardless. It happens quick.

Then things move fast.

Braxton Bragg is brought to life on these pages. Johnston and Grant become personalities you know. Shiloh Church becomes a place carved into the interior wall of your heart.

Will Henry's English is so good and so vivid, the reader comes to understand the main truths of the Battle of Shiloh, without reference to a map.

This reader loves maps, including historical ones, but will reference internally Will Henry's prose on all future occasions of study of maps of Shiloh.

Please, bibliophiles, check this volume out of as many libraries as possible, before the librarians throw out all the copies for being OLD and "UNPOPULAR," because the cover is old and worn. ( )
