Summary

Summary

In 1861, when war erupted between the States, President Lincoln made an impassioned plea for volunteers. Determined not to remain on the sidelines, Emma Edmonds cropped her hair, donned men’s clothing, and enlisted in the Union Army. Everyone, even her fellow soldiers, thought she was a man.

But Emma wanted to do more. When she heard a key Union spy had been captured and executed, she volunteered to take his place. Soon she was a cunning master of disguise, risking discovery and death at every turn. Emma had fooled her own army, but could she keep her secret behind rebel lines?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A suspense-filled account of a brave and loyal feminist.” Booklist
“The story is fast-moving; and Emma’s spunk—apparently motivated as much by the love of adventure as by the love of freedom—is evident.” Kirkus Reviews
