Where I'm Bound: A Novel, Ballard, Allen B
1 Ballard, Allen B Where I'm Bound: A Novel
Simon & Schuster 2000-10-05 0684870312 / 9780684870311 Hardcover Very Good Very Good Hardcover 
Very Good Condition: Unmarked pages. Few pages show corner end crease. Cover and dustjacket show minor storage and handling wear. Black marker line on bottom outer page edges, all other outer visible soil very minor. Hardcover print book with dustjacket copy of Where I'm Bound: A Novel by Allen B. Ballard. New York: Simon and Schuster, 2000. 316 pages. 6-5/8 x 9-1/2 inches, 25 cm. From the dustjacket: Where I'm Bound, a stunning and engaging Civil War novel, is the first work of fiction to focus solely on the soldiers of an African American regiment. More than just an account of the Civil War, Where I'm Bound is an affecting portrayal of the psychological effects of war. Through the character Duckett, some of war's greatest tragedies are painfully evoked: the agonizing separation from family, the horrendous mission of having to kill another man, and the cruelty and moral corruption that occur when men's passions are their greatest weapons against one another. Dr. Ballard's first work of fiction is a striking blend of historical fact and dramatic storytelling brilliantly illustrating the accomplishments of African American Civil War soldiers.
