A heavenly treasure ..............Dog Jack Jul 20, 2005
I will have the opportunity to see the movie of Dog Jack in the making and I am glad that this book is bringing out how Jesus Our Personal Saviour (who lives in your heart,if you ask Him)also is apart of our everyday life, like President Lincoln. I love it when the Lord cares enough about us and wants to be apart of our lives. Now that is a cool God and I know Dog Jack is a cool book about a young man, his dog and life with Jesus.
Good Book for Beginners of Civil War History Feb 26, 2004
A nice overview of the Civil War from the perspective of a young runaway slave. I would recommend this book for later grade school or early middle school children studying the Civil War. The book covers (briefly) plantation life, the assimilation of a former slave into the "free" world, and war with it's hardships - lack of food, imprisonment, poor medical resources, ... Simple characters and simple plot - just what a student needs to reinforce the lessons of Civil War studies. Some religious (Christian) overtones.

Read this book. It is very good. It's about a runaway slave who enlists in the Union Army during the Civil War. There is a lot of action. TEACHERS: If you want to teach your students about the Civil War, DO NOT have them read Across Five Aprils, have them read this. This was an excellent book, and if you feel otherwise, ...
Why did I read this book? Apr 4, 2000
This book is about a boy a dog and Chaplin Stuart. The boy is stuck in the middle of a war, the dog is glorified to the level of sainthood, and Chaplin Stuart always knows the right thing to say and how to keep the book corny. This book tries to present life lessons for children to live by in a very unoriginal way. If you want to teach your kids something read them the Bible not Dog Jack.
