Summary
It's the spring of 1864, and times are hard in Washington County, Arkansas, especially for thirteen-year-old Travis Ford. He hasn't heard from his father, a sergeant in the Second Arkansas Cavalry, in months. His mother is struggling to make ends meet on the family farm and abandoned sawmill near Poison Spring. All Travis really wants to do is to follow his passion--make up adventure stories in the style of Alexandre Dumas. But the Civil War keeps getting in his way. Since his mother hails from Illinois and has Abolitionist leanings, Anna Louella Ford and her children find themselves alone, and they are about to become even more isolated
Summary
Travis Ford lives on an Arkansas farm while his father is away in the Civil War, and as his mother tries to protect the family, becomes a witness to the massacre of the First Kansas Colored Volunteers unit by Confederate soldiers at the Battle of Poison Spring in 1864
