  • This one was kind of a let down after I ve really enjoyed Johnny D Boggs other novels It just felt like there was nothing happening, which probably made it realistic The main character, Travis Ford, was likable enough, and certainly his situation was dramatic, but I guess I just expected him to become involved in a big battle or have to shoot someone or something Not a bad book at all, just not what I expected More of a literary novel set during the Civil War and told through the eyes of a boy.

  • I like Boggs style He really captures the feeling for what it was like to live in the West In this story, the West is Arkansas in 1864 during the Civil War Thirteen year old Travis hasn t heard from his father in months And, as he is serving in the Confederate Army, he could be dead His family struggles to survive the hardships of the wartime South And, on one spring day, the family is caught in the middle of a battle, the Battle of Poison Spring.


  • Poison Spring surprised me I had not known about the infamous battle where Confederate soldiers massacred black Union troops trying to surrender It s worth your time.


  • Great story about a family on the frontier and in the middle of the fight between north and south, thru the eyes of a 13 year old boy Fast paced and I read it in one afternoon evening.
