This Spur Award-winning novel is an excellent story of a too-young-to-enlist New England boy who lies about his age to join the Union Army in the Civil War. He is also an avid player of a new game, baseball, which is just beginning to become known. Soon he finds himself as a prisoner of war in Camp Ford, a large Texas POW camp. Intertwining baseball memories and the story of the boy's life in the camp--where a baseball game between the prisoners and the guards plays a big part--Boggs delivers an interesting coming-of-age story with some good, solid Civil War era history and a nice dollop of early baseball lore.

I loved it.
