5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 1 Oct. 2013
By Pope Mel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One Arkansas summer in 1880, 14-year-old Brody overhears his parents talking about
the family's dire straights. The crops have failed. They've been going to bed hungry and have no way of surviving the coming winter. It looks like abandoning their farm and moving may be the only option. Brody decides to set out early the next morning, armed with his grandfather's gun. Maybe he can bring home some game to help his parents. But a hunting accident leaves him temporarily blinded and things are looking awfully grim, until...

Brody is saved by Ames, a former slave who worked for a Confederate general during the war. The only problem is, Ames is convinced the war is still going on. He is wracked with guilt over his wartime exploits and falsely accused of murder. Though he would like nothing more than to find his missing wife and daughter, Ames is determined to stay as far from civilization as possible. Brody only wants to return to his parents. Can they find a way to work together and achieve both their goals?

I don't want to give any more of the plot away. The book is beautifully written, and though there is plenty of action, it will also tug at your heart-strings. (I know...I was surprised to learn I had them!)

Hey, I'm a mom! The thought of a young boy, all by himself in the wilderness and so lonely that he holds conversations with an ill-tempered raccoon, damn near broke my heart.

I'm hooked and waiting for more of Brody's adventures.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than I expected! 29 Sept. 2013
By Mark Mays - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thought this would be a run of a mill, everyday, lack of excitement book but I got more than I bargained for. It is suspenseful and well written. Mr. Babb takes the reader into the emotionally and physically hard times after the Civil War, when people of all races were trying to carve out a living and just stay alive. You follow the trail of young Brody as he comes into manhood, fast and hard, and along the way he helps out a good friend. Thank you, Mr. Babb.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can hardly wait for the sequel! 20 Sept. 2014
By Lil Ruth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This may have been the most exciting story I have ever read, and I am not given to hyperbole. I stayed up until midnight to see if I could finish it the same day I bought it, but dozed off several times before giving up. If you love historical novels with a forced to grow up before their time theme, you will love this book as much as I do.
5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, great adventure for young adolescent. 20 May 2017

Could not put down. What would happen on the next page to young Brody. Character strengths and weaknesses make the book come alive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 26 Sept. 2013
By T Petty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Such a great story! I laughed AND cried. James has given us interesting characters and a fun, yet sometimes intense, story. The settings and characters are described in just the right amount of detail. I felt like I was on the journey with Brody! Although I believe the target audience is preteen/young teen boys, this is a great (quick) read for anyone! I can't wait to see what happens in the sequel!
