They're No Boy Scouts!
—By Emily Kiesling
"Could two orphaned farm boys help change the course of a nation? Ben and Gant Fane never thought so. But these two young men had a choice, either to live on a farm and lead a simple life, or to become "Iron Scouts" of the Confederate Army. They chose the latter.
While Ben uses his skill as a tree climber to spot approaching Yankee soldiers, Gant fights alongside grown men in the War Between the States. But the boys soon learn that war is not all fun and games. In fact, it may cost them their lives."
