[xviii], 466p. Endpapers toned, fade spots on cover, jacket has chips and tears to edges with spine sunned. Originally published in 1867, this was one of the first novels written about the Civil War. Union veteran De Forest's "frank treatment of oral questions and it's disconcerting honest description of war" were too strong for popular taste at the time. But this lesser-known classic of 19th-century American literature is rediscovered and put in its contemporary context by Haight. (8-3/8"x5-3/4")
