Across Five Aprils

Irene Hunt

“This book, based on autobiographical stories told by the author’s grandfather, chronicles the family and personal struggles of a boy growing up on a farm in southern Illinois as his region, country, and own family members become divided over the issues of slavery, secession, and war. It is full of action, suspense, and told in a highly readable and engaging style. It was originally published over 40 years ago and was immediately given literary accalaim in an age when westerns and historical fiction dominated our popular culture. I think it has a great amount of value to young boys today as well.” —an enthusiastic reader like you
