Description-
  • The Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults. The War had no clear-cut loyalties - it divided families, friends and towns. Young Tim Meeker's 16 year old brother go off to fight with the Patriots while his father remains a reluctant British Loyalist in the Tory town of Redding, CT. Over the course of the war Tim learns that life teaches some bitter lessons and does not guarantee clear answers.

About the Author-
  • At one time, Christopher Collier served as Connecticut's State Historian, and actually lived in Redding, the novel's primary setting. James Lincoln Collier, his brother, is a jazz musician, and has written over 500 published articles; he resides in New York City. For decades the Colliers have collaborated on numerous notable works of historical fiction for children. Utilizing deft characterization, the Colliers' novels about the American Revolutionary War allows readers to understand the opposing points of view that always accompany a conflict. In 1975 their My Brother Sam is Dead garnered the Newbery Honor Award.

Reviews-
  • - A Parents' Choice Approval Award "...ideal read-aloud material. Every last drop of drama is wrung from the tale."
  • - School Library Journal "This recording is technically excellent - Brown enunciates properly and listeners can follow each word without trouble. This is an acceptable addition for school and public libraries, especially since the title is frequently assigned reading. Suitable for individual, group and family listening."
  • - Kliatt "Seen through Tim's eyes, narrated in Brown's appropriately youthful voice, listeners will feel as though they are right there alongside the characters.."
