Eric, I have really enjoyed the book and the blog. Thanks for setting it all up and keeping it going. Pat's involvement has added a lot, I think. I appreciate her willingness to make herself available to us all.

Are you going to write up an evaluation of the project at the end of it? If so, would you be willing to share it?

Thanks for your participation. It has been an incredible project.

I will type up an evaluation of the project once it is completed. Also, I have written an article for the School Library Journal which will appear in the December issue and I think the USA Today will be doing an article in the near future.

Thanks.

I would like to comment on this book as a whole. I found this to be a wonderful historical account of the Civil War in Missouri. I know the book was written for young adults but as an adult, I found I could not put the book down. I just loved the account of the families and the boys. Having boys myself, I experienced the joys, the sorrows, the fears and all that mother's experience in their growing. I highly recommend this book as an addition to history classes. It was excellent.

I really liked the book it is hard to put it down when I am at home reading it. I usally always got into trouble at home when I read it because it's so good. I have even read some of it to my little nine year old brother Kyle. He likes it to but just doesn't understand everything.

I really liked this book! It was very interesting throughout the entire story. The last few chapters really kept my attention!

Thanks to all for the kind words about "GS."

But BigRed, I MUST know: How did you get into trouble at home for reading it?? My kids get in trouble for playing too many video games, watching too much TV or spending too much time on the computer, but never for reading too much! Were you reading when you were supposed to be doing something else?!
