Scribner

 

Reader Appeal: Parents, and teen fans of history

 

Genre: Biography

 

PopFam Rating: A-

 

Quick Summary: Subtitled, "The Violence, Passion, and Redemption of Stonewall Jackson," Gwynne's biography is a fresh, insightful read. Gwynne appears more suited to telling the true story of this famous Confederate General than he is with editorializing or slanting the facts in favor of his opinions of the man. That makes for an interesting, "warts-and-all" biography about one of the Civil War's most fascinating soldiers. Recommended.
