On the Eve of Conflict begins this unique researched blend of fact within a fictional account of Duane Kinkade's experience during the Civil War. It opens in the spring just as the war begins and the boy's father departs to disappear into the distant conflict. During the summer, with his father away, Duane, his mother, his dog Pounder, and his friend Jamie share a season of uneasy calm into a summer of unexpected violence toward a winter of loneliness. Finally, in the spring of 1862, Duane sets out in search of his father, somewhere in western Tennessee.Purchasing Options:
