Wonderful book. The story of two young gay Irishmen escaping ‘the hunger’ to America where they soon join the Union Army. After fighting Indians they then find themselves fighting fellow Irishmen in the ‘butternut army’; then fighting Indians again. After reading Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee this story has authenticity about it.

It has a happy ending as they settle down on a Tennessee farm with the young Indian girl they adopted as a daughter.
