In June 1861, when the Civil War began, Charley Goddard left his farm and enlisted in the First Minnesota Volunteers. He was fifteen. He didn't rightly know what a "shooting war" meant, or what he was fighting for. All he knew was that he didn't want to miss out on a great adventure.

The shooting war meant the horror of combat and the wild luck of survival. It meant knowing how it feels to cross a field toward the enemy, waiting for fire. Waiting for death. And Charley learned: This is how it's done.

When he entered the service he was a boy. When he came back he was different. He was only nineteen, but he was a man said to have "soldier's heart".

From the Publisher:
Eager to enlist, fifteen-year-old Charley has a change of heart after experiencing both the physical horrors and mental anguish of Civil War combat.

Praise

San Francisco Book Review
"...for mature young readers (or perhaps for those too addicted to action flicks), Paulsen has written a haunting book about the loss of life and the loss of heart in war." - Susan Faust 10/25/1998
