This is the first book of a wonderful trilogy which follows the life of one boy to adulthood and war. It's hard to not fall in love with the boy. He's smart, good hearted, and pranky. Growing in a farm in Georgia, he's not unaware of the injustices surrounding him related to class and race. It is much more difficult for him to realize the faults of his much-admired father.
I had to choose a trilogy from a list for designing book covers and I sure am glad I chose this one.
