Description
Captured by Confederates and shuffled from one prison to another, journalists Junius Browne and Albert Richardson escaped and trekked across the snow-covered Appalachians with the help of slaves and pro-Union bushwhackers during the Civil War. The author of K Blows Top recounts the true story of one of the great escapes in American history, which found Browne and Richardson encountering Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, a Confederate pirate-turned-playwright, and a sadistic hangman nicknamed "the Anti-Christ."

"It's hard to believe that anything compelling about the Civil War remains unexplored, but the picaresque odyssey of these two plucky journalists turns out to be an intimate and absorbing social history of the rarely glimpsed backwoods of the great conflict…. One of the great adventures of the Civil War."—Wall Street Journal
