**STARRED REVIEW**
"Engaging and picturesque . . . This book is a substantive contribution to the recognition of Walt Whitman and his place in American literary history for young readers."

— School Library Connection

"Hundley's illustrations mirror the tone of the book impeccably, with the harsh blacks, dusty sepia, and brownish reds capturing the weight and cruelty of war . . . The added use of Whitman's poetry throughout the text lends eloquence."

— Kirkus Reviews

"An emotionally and historically resonant homage to two kindred spirits."

— Publishers Weekly

"Utilizing a succinct, yet lyrical style, Burleigh quotes frequently from Whitman's poetry, providing a good sense of this nineteenth-century icon. Hundley's mixed-media artwork favors black, white, and sepia (consistent with period photos), embellished with color washes . . . Carefully researched and beautifully rendered."
