商品描述

媒体推荐

"This full-length junior novel should hold a place with the best Civil War fiction for young people. The fighting takes place in the West. . . . A young farm boy joins the Union forces, becomes a scout, and thus temporarily part of Stand Watie's Cherokee Rebels. There is suspense in the telling and many a colorful character." -- "H."

作者简介

Harold Keith grew up near the Cherokee country he describes in Rifles for Watie.A native Oklahoman, he was edu-cated at Northwestern State Teachers College at Alva and at the University of Oklahoma.

While traveling in eastern Oklahoma doing research on his master's thesis in history, Mr. Keith found a great deal of fresh material about the Civil War in the Indian country. Deciding he might someday write a historical novel, he interviewed twenty--two Civil War veterans then living in Oklahoma and Arkansas; much of the background of Rifles for Watiecame from the note-books he filled at that time. The actual writing of this book took five years.

Since 1930, the author has been sports publicity director at the University of Oklahoma. He is married and has a son and daughter.

平均5.0 星 Kindle edition - waste of $1 2017年3月17日
评论者 Lorraine Morrall - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
Hard copy - well worth it! Kindle edition - waste of $1.20 :( The hard copy of this book is well worth your money and the time spent reading it. A very thoughtful and informative historical novel about the western theatre of the Civil War. It is very thought-provoking, entertaining, and informative. I tried having my son read the Kindle edition first (just for portability reasons) but there were so many ridiculous typos that it was truly unreadable and I got a refund. Don't waste your time with the Kindle edition until you have some confirmation from Amazon that they've cleaned it up. I love history books and historical fiction, and I was truly sad when this book came to an end.

平均5.0 星 Coming of Age in Civil War 2016年12月31日
评论者 AintyJ - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: Kindle电子书 已确认购买
A boy becomes a man, in four long years.
He learns that the issues that divide us are
never as clearly defined as we might wish.
Fighting and dying can mean everything,
and nothing. Loyalty and love bring joy and pain.
It's what we all do, as we grow, everywhere we are. And that is the real beauty of this tale.
Action, drama, comedy, battle, saints and sinners... It's all here, well told. You can't help but care about them all. Yankees and Rebels.
Natives and Settlers. Blacks and Whites.
You hate to see either side lose.
We could use some of that now.
To have it served up in a fine story
of adventure and danger, love and intrigue,
is icing on a mighty fine cake. Enjoy!

平均5.0 星 A Top Notch Book about the Western Theater of the Civil War 2013年5月2日
评论者 Ilinois Reader - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 图书馆装订 已确认购买
Rifles for Watie is a book about the Civil War that is written for school age readers. Despite the intended audience, this book is every bit as interesting for an adult reader.

The author, Harold Keith interviewed, many Civil War veterans living in Oklahoma and found that he had enough information to write a historical novel. As a result, his battle stories pack in the absurd incidents of war intermixed with its horror. In one case, a new recruit rides into battle wearing his wedding suit-he'd joined right after his marriage. The groom is killed in the suit in that same battle.

Oklahoma (then called Indian Territory) and Missouri was packed with adherents of both sides of the war. Consequently the war is very cruel and personal. Keith takes this fact in full. The reader very much gets the cruelty of the war in the descriptive passages.

In researching the book, Keith was able to meet with veterans of both sides. To get that info out-to tell the whole tale of the Missouri/Oklahoma theater of war-Keith uses an interesting literary tactic. He tells the tale through the eyes of Jeff Bussey, a cornpone eating teenage Kansas Pioneer who joins up for the Union. Bussey then becomes a spy, serving in the Confederate Army with the purpose of keeping an eye out for a shipment of rifles for Confederate General Stand Watie and his men.

In 1958 I had a librarian give me this book to read. I used to walk up to the public high school from my elementary school. There I could find adventures of all kinds to take home to our farm house. There I would crouch next to the window in my bedroom until I couldn't read the pages anymore. This was one of the books I couldn't put down. Later as a teenager I bought the book for myself.
Now at 72, I buy it about the 4th This time for another grandson.

I was in grade school when our teacher read this wonderful work of art to us. Being a young man raised in Southwestern Arkansas in the 1950`s I was taken by this story of the War of Northern Aggression in the area that I lived. I was destined to walk those battlegrounds and think of this story most of my life. I forgot the romance of war during a tour in Viet Nam but I never forgot this wonderful book. This story was a driving force in my life that guided me to Duty, Honor, and Country.
