From author J. Arthur Moore comes a fascinating historical fiction that will engross readers from beginning to end. Up From Corinth follows an eleven-year-old boy’s journey to find his father in the midst of the turmoil of the Civil War.

Duane Kinkade’s search for his father leads him to the Confederate Army at Corinth, Mississippi, and into battle near a church called Shiloh at a place called Pittsburg Landing, where he falls wounded and ends up in the care of a Union surgeon. Up From Corinth is the story of that battle and the months that follow through the summer and fall of 1862, as the Army of the Ohio moves eastward. Skirmishes with elements of cavalry, illness, and the hardships of life in an army on the move culminate in full battle at Perryville. Finally, in the winter of 1862-1863, in the aftermath of a bitterly cold and bloody battle at Stones River, Duane is able to begin his trek back to the Confederate Army. How does he survive? The answer awaits readers as they join Duane in this riveting tale.
