Format: Hardcover
This story is about Private John Griffith Allen, a young Confederate soldier who is unable to read or write and likes to be called Griff. Griff has two friends named Wiley and Wallace. He gives Wiley a small bell. Later he gets his money taken from him and gets captured by Yankees. He sees Wiley and they take the oath of allegiance making them Yankees. They go on a steamboat to Montana. He makes friends with a little girl named Alma. With all the tradegies occurring, like his friends dying, he finally is a heroe. I think this is a wonderfully written book.
