Another very creative novel from Richard Adams! This time, he tells the story of the Civil War from the perspective of General Robert E. Lee's horse. Traveller's southern drawl and country colloquialisms are just charming. Unfortunately, he often doesn't know the names of the battles, towns, or soldiers that he's describing. I could only have liked this book better if I remembered more about the Civil War from my history classes 20 years ago. Luckily, my husband recently watched the Ken Burns series on the subject, so he was able to answer many of my questions. A Civil War buff, I believe, would LOVE this book -- therefore, I'm sending it to my favorite high school teachers. Enjoy!
