it was good. quick read. not awful but not a wow either. She's an interesting woman I just feel like either there wasn't enough information or wasn't elaborate enough. ( )

This quick story made me want to know much more about the fascinating Emma Edmonds. HOw could she have pulled off these disguises so convincingly? My two star rating is due to the fact that this is a book clearly meant for a younger reader and I don't think the author puts some of the racial commentary in the proper context for a student that does not know much about this period of history.

What a wonderful story. We see a young Canadian girl determined to stand up for her country and her people. Her only problem is that she is a woman. This did not stop her, Emma Edimonds decides to enroll in the military and fight in the Civil War as a man! She disguised herself as just that. She fooled them all and was able to fight for freedom. This book takes the readers through the good and the bad times of her courageous journey. While this book is very entertaining there are many moments where the author takes us through Edimond's hardest of times. We see the times of sorrow, loss, and fear but we also see a beautiful story with great memories made and lessons learned. The author wrote a very organized and well written story but what I liked the most is that it was written in third person. This way, we see a different perspective of the story. Edimonds is not the average woman of her time. She was a strong minded, strong willed, and strong headed woman who would not let any obstacle come between and her goal. What was surprising to me was the amount of other woman who were doing the same thing. It was estimated that there were actually around 400 women disguised as men during the Civil War. I think this book would be an excellent read for children between the ages of 9-12. ( )

I absolutely love this story. It's about Emma Edmonds, a Canadian who disguises herself as a man to fight for the Union army during the US Civil War. While in the army, working as a nurse, an opportunity arises for her alias, Frederick Thompson to cross rebel lines as a spy. He does this many times under the assumed identities of a contraband slave named Cuff, a middle aged Irish woman named Bridget O'Shea, and a Confederate sympathizer named Charles Mayberry. She is forced to desert because she got very ill and didn't want to reveal her secret. Later on after the war, she did get the honorary discharge she deserved after coming clean about her real identity. As it turns out, she wasn't the only woman who went into the army as a man. Nearly 400 women did the same things. It's a very inspirational story and is great for kids to read. It's not well-written, but the story is amazing. I would recommend that copies be kept in classrooms. ( )
