Will war provide the adventure Hannah longs for, or will she always be confined to the farm?
Hannah Wallace craves excitement, but all local adventures dried up long ago, when her parents unpacked their wagon on the Michigan frontier. Then war breaks out and her father and older brother leave to fight the Confederacy. Hannah is left at home chafing under the boredom of never-ending chores, jealous of her brother's lucky opportunity, and haunted by old memories—until unscrupulous speculators set their sights on the unmanned farm. The one place she longs to leave suddenly becomes the one place she'll risk everything to save.
Likened to the rich literary style of Ann Rinaldi but with its own twist of adventure, Blood of Pioneers presents the struggles and dangers of the least-remembered front of the Civil War—the home front. Find out why so many teachers have incorporated this Civil War historical fiction series into classrooms across the country.
