In compelling poetry, the spirits of Frederick Douglas, John Brown, and William Tecumseh Sherman come alive. So does the heart-rending tale of a Confederate son and Union father, the desperate struggle of boys fighting like men, the horrifying shrieks of the wounded, and the pitiful plight of a toil-weary slave. One poetic letter finds distraught parents aching for a son who hasn't been heard from in months. Another spotlights a wounded lad languishing in a POW camp, determined to survive his living nightmare.

The poems of National Children's Book Week honoree J. Patrick Lewis - acclaimed author of more than 45 works and frequent book reviewer for The New York Times - have graced the pages of dozens of magazines and more than 70 anthologies. In The Brothers War, Lewis vivid word-pictures provide youthful listeners with a poignant portrait of the brutal conflict that slaughtered a generation and left millions in despair.

    " Very nice blending of poetry and fact. Lewis does an excellent job with the different voices in each poem. A great addition to any Civil War Unit. "

    " Not for kids! There are some gruesome Brady pictures in here, plus there was a poem with a verse about "stopping a bullet with my face" or something. Otherwise a great book, but for older kids. There are little synopsis next to the poems about the aspect of the Civil War they were writing about. "
