"An absorbing history of Company K, from riveting battlefield narratives and vivid accounts of horrors endured at Andersonville Prison to tales of poverty due to pension benefits denied."--Booklist, Starred Review

"Meticulous research and inclusion of historical photographs, maps, letters, and other Civil War-era documents, as well as the smooth integration of primary source quotes, provide a solid nonfiction target worthy of shelf space. However, it's the final chapter and epilogue recounting life after the war that give a human depth to the soldiers' lives and place this work squarely in the bull's-eye. Hits the mark."--Kirkus

Praise for Blizzard of Glass: The Halifax Explosion of 1917:

"Riveting." --Kirkus, Starred Review

"Halifax does indeed have a story to tell, but Walker once again proves that it's her consummate gifts as a storyteller that breathe life into the tale." --The Horn Book

"This tragic, but well-told story belongs in most collections." --School Library Journal
