Storm Over the Land: A Profile of the Civil War by Carl Sandburg (HC/DJ)
Legendary American poet Carl Sandburg adapted his acclaimed four-volume biography into a one-volume account of the Civil War. Our nation had its unity hammered out in storm. Sandburg's story of those years takes in campaigns and generals, common soldiers in their daily struggles, politics behind battle lines and the unbreakable faith in high and low places. It is a tragic and inspiring narrative, told by one of the great figures of American literature.
