Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The final volume of the Lodestar's Young Readers' History of the Civil War series, For Home and Country: A Civil War Scrapbook by Norman Bolotin and Angela Herb, is a handsomely designed compilation of historic photographs, etchings, correspondence and participants' own commentary, which presents an affecting portrait of this critical conflict ($16.99, 96p, ages 10-14 ISBN 0-525-67495-0 July).
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

Gr. 4^-8. Look elsewhere for the battles and heroes of the Civil War. This heavily illustrated volume concentrates on social rather than political history. Organized by chapters chronologically from "War Fever" to "Marching Home," the text discusses broad topics such as the troops' food, sickness, boredom, and letters home. The many reproductions of period photographs, documents, advertisements, and newspaper clippings bring the times into clearer focus. Giving a close-up view of everyday life for Civil War soldiers, this book fills in the blanks left by more traditional history books. Carolyn Phelan

Format: Hardcover
This sixth and final volume in the civil war series
gives readers an overview of the war, covering topics
such as: training camps, outfitting the troops, prisoners of war,
and the march home. Numerous, captioned, black-and-white
photographs, quotes from eyewitnesses, and facsimiles of
contemporary newspaper clippings, advertisements, and
letters give the book a true "scrapbook" look and feel.
Includes: four-page timeline of the war; glossary; bibliography.
Written in a lively tone and liberally peppered with
ancedotes and interesting details, the narrative
pulls the reader in and truly makes history come alive.
Add to that the visually appealing graphics and well-designed
layout, and you have here top-notch nonfiction.
