When the Civil War breaks out, seventeen-year-old Wabash is drafted into the Confederate army. He is filled with hope and patriotism until he is captured by Union forces and sent to a prison camp in Ohio. Wabash is tortured and humiliated, but he keeps his spirits high, determined to return to his friends and family. When he is finally released, Wabash has lost so much weight that he is barely recognizable. He decides to walk home, a journey that will take him across the entire Midwest. Along the way, Wabash finds new friends, recovers his sense of humor, and learns the true meaning of courage. This remarkable story is a powerful testament to the power of hope, resilience, and friendship.; 8vo; FSA.
