Peter Leavell's award-winning debut novel is a touching and inspiring tale of surprising heroism amid the horrors of the Civil War.

Tad, a slave boy of exceptional hidden gifts, comes of age just as the Civil War erupts in coastal South Carolina. An unlikely deliverer, the young man's hopes remain buried under a crushing weight of abuse and degradation until an extraordinary event thrusts him and 10,000 fellow slaves into an uncharted wilderness of freedom and danger.

Based on true events, Gideon's Call immerses listeners in the slave culture of the antebellum South and propels them on a dramatic journey of hope, discovery, faith, and triumph. It is the story of a remarkable young man who, in the face of unimaginable obstacles, overcomes shame and prejudice to emerge a champion of thousands.

    " Somehow, this was not as engrossing as his Acacia series that I really enjoyed. However, I do like the African American perspective. There are just not that many black coming of age stories set in the frontier. It makes you realize, everyone who lived 200 years ago was not a slave. "

    " This is not a book that I would typically read. I usually read female authors with female heroins. It's not as gripping as I had hoped. "

    " Sweeping story of an intriguing sidebar of Civil War history. Leavell's impeccable research and excellent writing highlights some of history's quieter heroes. "

    " Gideon's Call is a masterful weaving of fact and fiction, making history come alive, and carrying the reader along side-by-side with the characters. Peter Leavell's stellar debut novel is a must read. Novel Rocket and I give it a high recommendation. "
